A Peek at My Week {4-13-14}

Welcome to another edition of A Peek at My Week, my weekly linky party where you can share your plans for the upcoming week.  I hope you'll join in!!
I don't know how, but I managed to contact another nasty bug....this one is a real hum-dinger.  So, as not to be a linky party pooper, this post is going to be short and sweet so I can get back to my sofa and sleepyland.

On Sunday, we are headed to Green Bay to have lunch with the in-laws and see the University of Wisconsin Varsity Band perform.  I'm really looking forward to it, especially for my own kids to see how important it is to stay in band because it can be such a fun experience in college.
We only have four days of school this week because of the upcoming Easter vacation!!  Two of those four days, I will be out attending Teacher Effectiveness Training for the state of Wisconsin.  Many of us are in the same boat where we have to be evaluated by our administrator on a yearly-cycle.  I'm not entirely sure, but I think this training is to be able to help with that.  I"ll keep you posted!
The Right Work
Preparing for a "guest teacher" for two days is not fun!  Like many kiddos, mine get easily confused and off track if their routine varies even one little bit.  My goal is to keep everything on cruise control until I can get back.  The students will be reading this book as a part of our Titanic unit:

I know...not very exciting plans for this week but you know how it is when you are gone....and sick on top of it.  

I'm hoping you can inspire me with your plans for the week!  Do you have a short week too?  I hope you will link up and will give me something to do while I'm hanging out on the sofa trying to rest-away this cold.  :(


  1. I love marching bands/school bands - like seriously love. I have no musical talents of my own but I think your kids should stick with it too! Have you seen the documentary Thunder Soul about the Kashmere High School Band - if not you must check it out!!
    Hope you feel better soon : )

  2. FEEEEEEL BETTER! I hope the couch is treating you well. What a bummer to be sick on the weekend. XO

  3. The promo looks awesome! I hope you guys have a great time. We live in the college marching band world because of my hubby, and the video looks like awesome promotion. I have a short week too. I'll be back to link up a little later. Feel better!

  4. Hopefully, your teacher training will be worthwhile. It's always tough to be out of the classroom, especially for two consecutive days. I am sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. Take care of yourself, and get better soon!
