Less Than Two Weeks!

It’s crazy to think we have less than two weeks left of school. This next week will house an awards ceremony for Abigail, and a water day for her as well. The next week will be class parties for the both of them, and then Joseph’s promotion on the last day of school. I work one day after they’re done and then I’m off, too. I’ll have at least one training to attend during the summer (maybe more, but I’ll see what the schedule is like) before starting back next year. Right now, I’m in limbo between two grades. The principal really wants to move me down to fourth, but it can be challenging finding people to teach fifth, so I may stay put. I’ll hopefully know more in a couple of weeks once all transfers have gone through. I’ve also been studying for my last big test, which I take on June 8th. I have yet to hear back on if I passed the test I took two weeks ago (hopefully I’ll hear back in the next week or so), but I really hope I pass it and this next one so that I can be DONE with testing. Joseph had his last grade-level performance. The music teacher had some songs playing and the kids played a sort of descant to the main melody for each song. I thought it was brilliant. It was a way they could play with limited knowledge (the teacher said they were focusing on three major notes) and have it sound really good. He also had his GT Showcase where he showed off the structure he built (He built the Tower of the Americas) and his dream room. These went perfectly with the GT theme of structures. Oh, and our new stove came in. Our old one was still functioning, but a couple of the burners have been randomly running hot without responding to us turning down the heat (unless we turn them completely off), so when Paul was looking around and noticed a good one that was on sale, we jumped on it and got set up with a new one. It’s been nice not having a possessed cooktop, haha.

Getting ready to play.
Playing along with the group.
His interpretation of the Tower of the Americas and his dream bedroom that he designed. How does he look so grown in this picture?!
My new stove is super-fancy. I like all the different burner sizes that are offered (and that back center one is a special burner than is designed just for keeping pans warm).
It had a black stainless steel (with a fingerprint-resistant feature) as an option. It’s pretty!
The inside. It’s huge. We went for one with 6.3 cubic feet instead of the smaller standard size. Consequently, the drawer at the bottom is slightly smaller, but that’s not a big deal. It’s a convection oven (but it does have a regular oven setting) and it also has a few fun settings. In addition to convection baking and air frying, it also has a dehydrate setting as well as a bread proofing setting. It’ll be fun to experiment with once I’m on break.
I found the yummiest berries at the store yesterday. Look how plump they are! They are really ripe and sweet, which I haven’t found in quite some time.
A friend of mine clued me in on the existence of what could arguably end up being my new favorite flavor from Blue Bell. It’s quite tasty! Just when I thought Blue Bell couldn’t get any more “Texas” than it already was,it rose to the occasion, haha.
