But at least it made me take time to relax - heck, I couldn't even think straight. So, I spent my Saturday watching college football and a movie (not that ND was anything special in their game).
And today, therefore, was one spent lesson planning (after a run and coffee with my sister, of course). I love the challenge of it, but I often struggle with coming up with that one big take-away (when there are SO many standards) and then coming up with a set of activities that are both diverse in learning styles and short enough for my students' attention spans.
We'll see how this week goes. (I'm taking the 8th grade to Adoration on Friday, so please say some extra prayers that they are open to meeting Jesus in the Eucharist in a new way.)
Only one volleyball game this week - woo hoo! I'm sure my time with them will be the highlight of my Monday.
