The concert (Chamber Project St Louis) last night went well. We made it through everything, and the audience gave us a standing ovation at the end, which was really touching. It was a great season overall and I’m relieved to be done. It was exhausting, and honestly my shoulder still needs some healing before I am back to more intense playing.
Today my boss at the school, Laura, threw a wonderful baby shower for Kirby, one of the other teachers at the school. It was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed getting to chat with some of the parents and teachers than I don’t ordinarily have time for. I had to leave early, unfortunately, but really enjoyed it. She got the cake from McArthur’s Bakery based on my earlier recommendation (though I must admit I decided NOT to eat the cake today. Mike would be proud. I’m sure it was amazing.) I only took a few pictures because I wasn’t in super blogger mode, but here’s a few I “instagrammed.”
The punch! It was really tasty. In my opinion, one of the most fun parts of teaching is having punch at the recitals (though not tomorrow, unfortunately.) I guess I’ll have to add baby showers to the list of places and times to have punch. The shower had an owl theme.
We played a couple games. One of them was pairing up in teams to decorate onesies, and then Kirby had to choose her favorite. We didn’t win but had a good time making ours.
Last but not least—the party favors. These are super cute and filled with chocolate. I left mine in the car for a bit, so it partly melted. I figured since I skipped the cake and then ran about 5 miles I could eat a couple pieces 😉
