Parent Teacher Conference

Today was Rachel’s first parent teacher conference. In it I got Rachel’s first progress report. Rachel, unsurprisingly, is doing very well in school. She really enjoys it a lot, and is making good progress. The two categories of the score were “usually” and “working on.” The “usually” category sounds weird, but it makes sense after you read the progress report.

My day started at 5:00 this morning. I had to get up early because I was on TV this morning. A small group of people from my barbershop chorus were invited to sing on a show to highlight our upcoming competition, as well as our upcoming guest night. The show wasn’t until 9:00, but we were supposed to be there by 7:00 so we could pre-record some Christmas music that they will use in the future.

Here is a link to our segment from this morning. (I hope this works!)
