The Principal Chronicles Continue ... March has arrived and I always feel as though it's time for summer but then I forget that we usually get blasted with some crazy weather in March and April. I think we may be done with the snow days but now we move to our next challenge: lightning dismissals. We have a plan in place but oh boy is it going to be crazy with all of our social distancing rules. In addition, March becomes 'go time' for state testing. So many things have to come together and be put in place - it's crazy. I honestly have no idea how I am going to figure it all out. 

On the personal side, I finally moved and am officially in my new place. It is very nice but Norman is having a hard time being in a new place with no yard. He has been going to Doggy Day Care which has been good for him, but any time I leave the house without him he freaks out and starts barking and howling. I hope he is able to adjust here soon. Other than that, it is just trying to get things unpacked and organized. 

That is it for this week, stay tuned for next time when the Principal Chronicles continue ...
