"Let it go, this too shall pass. (You know you can't keep lettin' it get you down. No, you can't keep lettin' it get you down.) "

First things first.

A moment of silence for Maplewood Barn.

A little part of me died when I heard that this community theater burned down. I know that I hold many fond memories of the place. I also know that each and every member of the Lambson clan will feel this loss.

But let us not dwell to much on what has passed and cannot be un-done.

Here is the next batch of pictures.
The lovely array of things sent in a package from Elise for Easter

Twinings Herbal Unwind tea, Yummy chocolate eggs, Reeses pieces carrot, YUM!
More cadburry eggs, Peppermint tea, A fun card, 24, body wash
Two entertainment Weekly's, egg coloring kit, a book I can't wait to start!
The fruits of my labors. Some gold, some not. It took a while, but it was fun.
More eggs! One is still drying.
My color pallet. Look how artistic I was, mixing colors and everything!
This was my attempt to make the traditional "brown" egg. It turned out more bronze. I actually like it better this way!

Me trying to be creative and getting fun with my brush strokes.
The striped egg. But it didn't turn out how I hoped.
Abby M. made this egg. She rolled her hands in the gold to do it. The stripes happened somehow. It was kind of cool.
Purple, orange, green. I have never painted eggs before. It was always just coloring with food coloring. The result was kind of cool!
Bronze and gold.
This is Lulu. This is Lulu cooking our dinner. Cook Lulu, cook!
And then lastly, this is me. This is me with my new haircut. This is me not being very photogenic. Oh well.

So overall things are going well.

Last Monday was Teacher Appreciation. Guess who was the event coordinator? That's right, yours truly.

I have to say, it was pretty hectic. I was so afraid that things weren't going to come together because people weren't stepping up. But the day of things started coming together. I felt like a bee going from flower to flower. I buzzed from project to project making sure things were going well and as planned.

Sadly, none of my teams teachers came. So that meant I spent the whole time moving back and forth between the kitchen making sure that food was replenished and drinks were replenished and that everything was going okay even though we assigned people to do those things.

It was a success and everybody thought so. I don't have pictures of it because I was too busy but maybe I can get them from another person.

I wish I could say that I had fun. It was a busy night and I felt like I didn't get to enjoy myself. But it's over now. It was a big step.

We are on our last week of teaching. This means Earth Day next Saturday and a week after that the panting day for out service learning project. We are not ready and I am trying not to let it stress me out and have faith in my teaching partners.

Anyway, I'm not going to bore you anymore.

Things are going along. I can't believe it's April already!
