My speech team did wonderful this year with nine kids qualifying for Sections (plus three first alternates), four in Section finals, and three who went to State. It was all very exciting.
I've been coaching speech for thirteen years, and I've had a lot of wonderful students, but this group is definitely one of my favorites. They are so talented, so hard-working, and so much fun! On our State trip they made me laugh until my sides hurt.
Right now we are rehearsing for the high school spring play, so I don't have to totally say good-bye to them yet. :) We are doing three short plays, one comedy, one drama, and one that has comedy and drama. They're all looking really good and I'm excited for opening night next Friday.
After that my life will be getting a bit more back to normal.
How about all of you? What's been going on in your lives? Keeping busy? Finding time to relax? Finding time to write? (I'm doing my best, plugging away at two very different mss.) Any big plans for the weekend? (Don't forget to call your mom!)
And Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies out there!
