Another ouch has come and gone. I have completed grading all 110 essay exams - - in 24 hours at that! I try to grade quickly so that it's over and done with, much like ripping off a band-aid. There's only four days left of school. There is so much to do to get my classroom ready and to finish up a project or two that needs completing before summer break.
Tomorrow is Hannah's last day at Montessori until August. She is excited to give her teachers a gift, but I know that she will miss her friends. The boys are jealous that she's done before them.

Hannah has been taking tap lessons this year at Montessori. It's a fabulous deal; the instructors come to her school each week, so I don't have to take her anywhere, and it's only $5/lesson! She has practiced on the tile floor at home numerous times. She loves the sound her tap shoes make on the hard floor. (John and I aren't quite as crazy about the sound as she is.) I wasn't really planning on having her participate in this year's recital because it was when I would be out of town with Explorers Club. However, when I saw her costume and how excited she was about dancing on stage, I knew I'd have to figure out a way to make it work. Thanks to a friend from church (whose child is also at Montessori) who could take Hannah to dress rehearsal and to John and my mom for going to the recital, Hannah was able to debut her dancing abilities. I'm not sure she's ready for Dancing With the Stars, but she's pretty darn cute!

After the museum, we went to Joe's Crab Shack for dinner. It actually took about an hour to go just a few blocks away because our bus driver got really turned around and drove across the river into Indiana and had to turn around and cross back over. Dinner took a really long time; groups of 25 make things harder for restaurants. But, it was really nice just to sit for a while. My crab cake sandwich was awesome!
Tomorrow we go to Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom for the day.
