1) It turns out that Billy Elliot is playing in Chicago the same weekend I'll be there to see Lookingglass Alice. So I got myself a ticket today. Nice way to pass the time until Jason's flight arrives, isn't it?
2) My principal forwarded me this email this morning:
Subject: Fwd: Thank You from the Board of Education
At the May 10 meeting, the Board asked me to thank you on its behalf for the care and follow-through in selecting Amanda W---- to replace Ruth B---.
Board members commented that she has done an outstanding job and that their concerns about finding a quality speech coach and play director were very well addressed.
