Well, just a couple of days ago, Tuesday.... I completed a huge project at work. We had an education celebration for our Lower School. All of the families were invited to join their children in the classroom for a student run presentation of work. Then they were able to visit with "special" teachers from art, music, language and science. The Library was hosting a book fair where you could purchase books from Scholastic. We were celebrating Earth Day, too, with the planting of a rain garden and chalk drawings on the driveway. As well, our Art department was installing an outdoor tiled bench for classes to enjoy in good weather. We had performances from lower school choir and band. And to top it all off we had a family picnic with bluegrass music. Planning the picnic, coordinating the events, invitations and numbers were my responsibility. WHEW! We had about 300 + people in attendance and things went very smoothly. Thank goodness. This is one of those things that could have just flopped. It was a first time event, which is always a challenge, but we also didn't get the official thumbs up to do this thing until 3 weeks before. So, even though plans had been tentatively set, and things had been in the works for longer.... it was still a last minute scramble to pull it all off. And I am just now letting out a huge sigh of relief. Of course with every event you have to wait a couple of days to "hear" the feedback. Which seems to be all positive. So I can now officially let go of this one. It was one of those projects, I am so pleased that it went well, but I am also so glad it is over. Now I feel as though I can really focus on some things that I want to accomplish this spring and summer, at work and at home. I am in the mood for some serious crafting! And am so excited to have the weekend ahead to get started! Here are a few photos from the picnic!
