I am looking forward to a long break - ooops, I won't get the break - have busy weekend and early next week also. Saturday is "Women's Breakfast" at church. Sunday, I leave for a conference about 6 hours away. Will be there through Tuesday evening and then I get to drive back home for 6 hours and THEN get up and go to school on Wednesday.
This particular conference is part of a two-year long program on Autism - it is called an ACADEMY rather than a conference. It is statewide and there is a second year cohort that follows us. Representatives from every county in the state are going to be there and it will be INTENSE. Last time we started at 7 a.m. and didn't get done until nearly midnight each night. THEN we had HOMEWORK to do and follow-up phone calls and additional meetings. I love it but it is NOT A BREAK. Fortunately this time, I feel like there are POSITIVES to share and that I will be able to benefit from it more than last year.
Oh, the technology guru at school informed me that my SMART BOARD has been ordered - since it has to go through the state purchasing system, it may take forever to GET it but FINALLY I will have one. I am so EXCITED even though it may be spring before I see it.
Going to take a rest tonight since I must be up bright and early in the morning.
