Three weeks to the holidays . . .

Yeah, that's all I've got lol.

Our school is at an athletics carnival tomorrow with two other schools (it's a 'faction' carnival but each school is a faction - we're too small to have intraschool factions). While I'm not particularly looking forward to a day of sensory overload (too much glare from the sun, too much noise from the kids, too much heat . . .), it's at least a day when I don't have to teach. So it's practically the weekend :D

The carnival looks like it's going to be a bit disappointing at this point - one of the other schools has 25 kids off sick. That's out of a school of 60 kids. Yup, nearly half of the kids are away. We've got quite a few off, including two of our best boys, and quite a few others not feeling too great. We don't know about the third school but they're unlikely to be immune. The thing that's going around starts with a splitting headache and a sore throat, and I'm trying to pretend that I haven't had a headache the last three evenings and don't have a slight sore throat. Really truly I don't . . . *sigh* I'm hoping it's just dehydration and will go away. I don't want to be sick! We have a big family gathering on Saturday night!
