It was nice taking some time away. The kids are done with school, and mine managed to pass all their classes, keeping them on track to graduation. One is officially a Senior, now, the other a Junior. The stress level had dropped dramatically in the home, now that school work is non existent, and the pressure of expectations gone.
I am in the middle of a major re-image project at work, still. The brief down time between regular and Summer school puts us in a position to sneak in this process. After that, Summer School begins and I am back to normal hours. It won't be till the end of July where a more open ended schedule will present itself, and hopefully a return to Buhl for a get away.
But with Drum Corps roaring, and the first show weekend of the year in less than a week, there is much work to be done This weekend is another cleaning camp, at Northdale Middle School in Coon Rapids. If you find yourself in the neighborhood around 5:30 Saturday, or 3:30ish Sunday, stop by for a treat. You will see the best Drum and Bugle corps to ever come out of Minnesota, and maybe the best ever all age corps . . in the world!
