This was a really busy week, but we survived it!
Last night, Brendan and I hosted the first ever induction of the English Honor Society. We had 24 students and over 100 people in the audience. I met many parents, grandparents, and children of our students, and it was really nice to have such a large group gathered to honor the students. Our Program Chair, Dean, and even the Vice-President of the college were in attendance. This year and last year have really taught me a lot about how important it is for community college students to have student life experiences. It makes me feel happy to help build those opportunities for them. Tonight, we took a group from the club to see The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged at the community theater. It was hilarious and the best show that we've seen there in the few years we've been attending shows.
We also celebrated a baby shower with friends in Midland today for Dagan and Stephanie. They were married a few weeks after us and are expecting a daughter in June. My cousin Allie had a baby shower today as well in San Angelo, so I was thinking of her today and celebrating from afar. Her daughter is due in April.
We're thankful for the chance to rest tomorrow before heading into week TEN of the semester (we're in the double digits...it's hard to believe!). We have a whole bunch of nothing planned, except maybe a trip to the grocery store. We've been addicted to True Detective lately, so we'll probably hole up and watch that mostly. The show was written by a guy that attended the M.F.A. program at McNeese. It's so weird to see Lake Charles featured in a show. I jokingly describe Lake Chuck as "the twilight zone," but I really miss living there.
Hope whatever you do tomorrow, your Sunday is your fun day!
