If we were sitting down to coffee this morning, I’d first apologize for being so brusque last week.

Candlelight went well, despite a minor medical emergency. Which begs the question: if it’s minor, is it an emergency? An ambulance was involved, so I suppose it wasn’t that minor.

Last Sunday was our church Christmas cantata. It went well, the product of 6 months of practice. I just wish composers were more kindly disposed toward tenors; we aren’t all Tenor 1, after all.

This week at school has been hectic.

On Wednesday we held a bake sale to benefit the Cross Country team and raised $145.

On Thursday the students performed their Christmas program, which they’ve been working on since August.

On Friday exams began, which meant students collectively lost everything they’d learned over the last 18 weeks.

Just three more days to Christmas break.

Of course, on Wednesday I also interviewed historian John Fea for a podcast, but by now you’re probably sick of hearing me talk about it.

I’ve been making progress on finishing my reading challenge, though my reading will be minimal this weekend. I finished almost two books this week, so I’m only down to three left for the year; huzzah!

Which brings us to today, where I’m both grading and writing exams while drinking coffee and eating Cheez-It Extra Toasty crackers.

What’s happening with you?
