11/11 A Good Day Subbing/Chuck's new phone

Well I was relieved to have a genuinely fun day today subbing for the vocal music teacher at Barterton High School for 1/2 day. The kids treated me to a 5-part a cappella version of the National Anthem, I taught a round to the freshmen (a Hebrew folk tune) and I enjoyed conversations with a young improvisational pianist named Marquis and a young musician/dancer named Alex.

I had Chet's grand-daughter in one of my classes and recognized several other kids' names from Chuck's different committees.

I can "do" high school. I know how to have fun at it and how to help kids have fun growing and learning. Note to self: do not sub for Kindergarten.

Chuck just beamed to see that I'd had a good day.

However, lots of empty, awful hours for Chuck still while we try to get his schedule in place. Tomorrow we'll be guests at a Salvation Army Ladies Auxillary function (of which Chuck is the only male member) and we continue to receive invitations from different service clubs and gatherings.

I got Chuck's newer, simpler phone (Nea's) turned on today. Just waiting to see if it will hold a charge before we try to go live with his new number.
