Good evening, it is Thursday.
Today was a very interesting day. I learned a couple of weeks ago that due to budget cuts the job I've enjoyed for the last seven years has been cut. I opted to throw my name in an unfilled pool where paraeducators go by seniority to choose from unfilled jobs. With seven years I have decent seniority, so I was hopeful. I left the pool (which was kind of like the NFL draft) with an ELL job at the high school Preston just graduated from, Hansen goes to, and Lillie will be going to. I'm a bit nervous to go from elementary to high school, but I'm very excited as well. And as of today, I get to be excited for the whole summer. That's right, school's out for summer!
I'm also very excited about the U.S. Open being played here at Chambers Bay! Yesterday I was able to take Preston, Connor, and Nick to a practice round. The greens may be a bit rough, but the course is just an amazing place, and the USGA has made this a world class event.
See you tomorrow.
