Weekly Wrap-Up: March 14-18

By 1:00 AM

 
Hello friends! Whew! What a busy week this was!
 
First of all, I had a BLAST at the SE-YA Book Festival! SO MUCH FUN!
 
Monday and Tuesday were our only 'normal' school days. Wednesday, our boys basketball team played in the state quarterfinals and WON, so our school let the kids (and some of us teachers!) out at 11:45 to head to the game. Thursday, we began this standardized testing mumbo jumbo, so I was stuck in the cafeteria for the first half of the day on supervision duty (aka grading papers and helping a teacher beat this Wordbrain level). The second half of the day I actually had to give a test, so no classes were really held. We had parent-teacher conferences that night too, so basically Thursday was the LONGEST. DAY. EVER. And today, our boys went back to compete the semifinals and I am bummed they lost 46-41! We did get to leave at 10 though, but we all had to be back by 2:15. (Yeah, the majority of the kids didn't bother to show. LOL)
 
But guess what?! Spring Break starts on Thursday at 3:45! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! :) I'll be pretty busy getting some things done, but I'm hoping to get some good reading in as well!
 
 
 
Monday:                       The Monday Musts: Searching For Someday and Perfect, Zara Larsson, SE-YA books!
 
Tuesday:                       REVIEW: Hawke by Sawyer Bennett (3.5 stars)
 
 
Friday:                           REVIEW: Out of Frame by Megan Erickson (4 stars)

(OMG this panel was hilarious. Note to self- do not get invested in any of their characters just in case they kill them off. That's their thing, apparently!)

    1. The festival was great! I am so happy it was a success! And yes! School has been SO crazy! Next week isn't AS crazy, but still more so than I'd like. After that, we have spring break and things will settle down. I'm so excited for some R&R!

  3. School sounds CRAZY busy! Congrats to the boys. That's super exciting. I loved how the whole school would rally around the teams when they were in playoffs. It's so much fun. All that school spirit! It's a bummer they didn't go further, but they should be really proud of their accomplishments regardless!

    I have all THREE of the books you mentioned and I can't even tell you which I'm most excited about. I think the answer is ALL OF THEM!

    Have a great week, lady!

    1. OMG girl. You have no idea. I'm so exhausted. Mentally and physically! LOL. I love that we had the opportunity to play in the state tourney again, but it really does mess with getting work done. LOL. Oh well. We have no shot clock at the HS level, so the team we played Friday just held the ball forever, which caused the loss.

      I hope we love all three of those books!!!!
