Today I found out that I have been selected to represent my school at the National Educational Computing Conference* in Washington, DC this summer.
I am terribly excited, having never been to DC, and quite humbled and honored, being the only k-8 staff member selected to attend. I am also, however, wondering what on earth I am going to do with all of the evenings after the conference ends. You must understand that I am used to 2 jobs, schooling 2 kids, a home, a husband, 2 cats, a dog, etc. WHAT will I do with myself?
Ok, am I THE most pathetic person alive? Apparently my biggest source of anxiety is having free time. Can those of you with a psychology background do some sort of analysis on this and get back to me?
If you happen to be in the mood for a mid summer romp in old DC, please do not hesitate to give me a shout out. I could REALLY use a sight seeing buddy.
Upon hearing the news that I will be visiting Washington, DC this summer, Isaac excitedly asked if I am going to visit the Declaration building and if I can bring him home a souvenir copy of the Declaration of Independence just like the one in the National Treasure movie.
You will find quite the commitment to an accurate American history education in the S house.
Love to all!
*Look, I KNOW this sounds like pure hell or possibly THE most boring thing in the world to many of you, but it really is a big, exciting deal in my little life.
