So I haven't been keeping up with this blog, but recently we have had a lot of exciting developments. We got to go to Michigan to see Amanda's recital and it was fantastic! She has become such a terrific player and it was great to see what she has accomplished in grad school. Also, I have applied for a job in Liberty to teach strings. I am thrilled to have had a screening interview and now I am hoping that I get called again for a building level interview. The person I student taught with, Mary Lou Jones is the teacher at the high school and it would be fantastic to be able to work in her district with her and all the other great staff that is in Liberty. We just found out today that Calista also got an interview in Liberty! It would be terrific if the two of us could get a job in the same district.

I decided to go for a walk today and I took some pictures of what is happening in Urbana. Spring is here! I forgot how beautiful Urbana is in the spring. It has been nice to have some extra time to enjoy it this week because I have had very few classes. Orchestra has been cancelled this week because the director wanted to give us some extra time to pay us back for the hard work we did last semester. Calista has also been sick so it has been good that I have had the extra time to get her tea and make sure she some day recovers. For now that is all in Urbana.
