The Challenge Begins...

My day started, like most, with a 4:30 wake-up to get in an early morning workout.  Part of my stress relief is to stay in shape by running.  My next race will be the Indy Mini Marathon in May.  I try to do most of my running early in the morning to avoid taking away from time with my family in the after-school hours.  I generally get my morning routine completed so that I can start my school day sometime between 6:30 - 7:00. 

My day has the making of a very busy day, but it should be a rewarding day as well as I take time to meet with each of the 5th grade students as a pre-ISTEP session.  I will take time to go over previous ISTEP scores and help the students set a goal for the upcoming tests.  The fifth graders will meet for an unrelated convocation this afternoon in which I will help supervise the group.  The school day ends with a PTO meeting. 

This evening our family time will be split between 2 or 3 locations.  My oldest son has a wrestling meet at the middle school.  My wife will play chauffeur as she goes between wrestling and my younger son's basketball practice.  I coach the basketball team but will not be able to attend this evening because I will be attending the regional spelling bee at Bethel College.  A 5th grader from NES will be participating in the event.

Our family will have a chance to wrap up the evening as we each meet at home around 8:00. 

Have a great day....
