This is the view from where we were sitting. We could see nearly the entire orchestra! And the music was fantastic! They had a wide variety of pieces to please almost everyone in the audience! I estimate that where we sat, if we were to sit in the same position in the orchestra hall, would cost about $70-$80 per person to attend! If they ever come to the area again we would most definitely drive all the way back to catch it!
I almost forgot! I got to see Kathy Dunsmoor!! I worked with her for 2 years at Madison Elementary, and when we got the town on Friday night I had realized on the drive that I forgot to pack my phone charger, toothbrush and pj's... (I was just excited to come back to visit... so I forgot some things) So, we went to Target to find the things I needed, well who was working? KATHY! We stood and talked for abit! She admitted she reads my blog! (blushes) I'm so happy people take the time! But it was great to see her! I will definitely have to make sure when I come back to town I take the time to make a short stop to see her!!
Sunday I got to go home (Stewartville) to spend some time with family! I made Spicy Spaghetti! It's super simple!
1lb. Spicy Pork Sausage
29oz. Tomato Sauce
1 can Cheddar Soup
Cook and crumble pork sausage. Drain, and put back in pan. Add tomato sauce, cheddar soup, and pepperoni. Heat through and then add oregano. Simmer for about 5 min. and serve! At this point it also helps to have cooked the spaghetti noodles, but if you want to eat them raw that's cool....
So, I spent time with my family (Mom, Da, Tami and Gram) and then we had to take off mid-afternoon to make it back before too late. I ended up starting our drive back, my Da even called Otto to say I did a pretty good job taking off! (remember his car is a manual... and I've driven it less than a handful of times... and I still can't start from a dead stop going up hill...) I felt extremely proud! I'm getting better!!!
As for work today (9 July)... Bubbles and I have decided to start putting ASL into our lesson plans and create sheets to send home with the kids so the parents know what they're trying to say. So... this means I will be spending a good amount of time using our new printer that my AWESOME GRANDMA bought us since it has a scanner! I'll scan and cut and paste things to create the sheets! Much easier than trying to draw everything out... being that I'm a perfectionist-artist... I would take weeks for any page I could scan in under a minute!
