Gathering Graces 3/21/2017

*What a busy but wonderful day I had.  I hit the ground running with nabbing some students who had not registered for the SAT last week, and got most of them registered. 
*It was Higher Ed Day at KHS.  This is a day representatives from most of the colleges in Idaho come and talk to the junior class about their respective institutions.  It was fun talking to the three people from the University of Idaho, and sharing our Vandal Pride with one another.  One of the people remembered Cosette from Girls State.
*The College of Idaho representative was talking to students right outside my office, so I was able to visit with him some about Zoe just graduating from there last spring, and how he ended up working for College of Idaho.  It was also fun to hear him sing the praises of Gabriell Benefield, one of our seniors, who will be attending College of Idaho next fall. 
*For lunch, my P.E.O. chapter hosted a lunch in the library for all the junior girls.  We shared with them about our scholarships we offer to senior women, and Cottey College, an all’women’s college in Missouri that is sponsored by P.E.O.  For our first try at a lunch, I thought it went very well.
*In the afternoon, Shoshone Medical Center came and put on a Heath Careers Fair for students in the gym, so that gave me some time to get some work done in the office.
*After school it was off to Pinehurst Elementary for some Drama.  Today I had the students perform some short skits.  They did such a great job.  I look forward to them performing even more in the upcoming weeks.
*Well, my day wasn’t done yet.  It was off to Our Savior Lutheran Church to practice my solo for the Easter Cantata, then Cantata practice to follow.  I love singing this Easter music, which is a constant reminder of the sacrifice Jesus made for each and every one of us by his death on the cross which reconciled us the God. 
*Ahhhh, then home.  Once home, Paul and I had a nice visit on the phone with his brother Kevin and wife Linda about some things coming up. 
*Then it was time for bed!!  As the rain was pouring outside, I laid my head to rest.
