Beginning The Wrap-Up

This was the last day of preparation for the grade 12s to have their U.S. History presentations ready. I confirmed that I have booked the powerpoint machine and I gave them a good exercise for the remainder of the war. They finished the last 30 minutes preparing for their presentations and I generally have a good feeling for what's to come.

I really feel like we're starting to watch for the end of my stay at ECI. I have the Dec. 6th assembly to help coach through (that's a whole other kettle of fish), we're planning all three unit tests, and I'm starting to have real difficulties not thinking about the kid on the way. I'll have to be careful that I don't get too distracted. Things have been great, moving comfortably forward, but I've got to bring it all together nicely for a neat finalé.

It turns out that Peggy is going to away on Thursday again. I take that as a vote of confidence in me. I've got to admit that I'm a little disappointed Ms.H. will miss some presentations, but so it goes. She has a really good opportunity to attend a good conference, so she's taking it. Ultimately I'm just really thinkful for how amazingly supportive and open she is with me. She allows me to do as I see fit, guiding me through the details of planning, interjecting only on occasion and always on point.

Veerla will be coming to see a review for the U.S. test. I hope I can make it interesting enough to make it worth her drive to Etobicoke.
