It is nice to have a little more time to get things done. I still haven't finished the sheets yet! I keep debating about whether to use nice cotton or linen. I just need to make a decision and move on it! I also need to find some nice compressed foam to make a new bed for us out of. Ours has had quite a bit of water damage, and I'm pretty sure it needs replacing.
We are getting a little more comfortable with the idea of actually taking Lark out sometime in the near future! We put up her sails, and discovered a couple of spots where they need to be repaired, but they are small, and I think I can probably manage it myself. Jacob and I have both had solo maneuvering lessons aboard too. I took her out of the slip, down the fairway and into the river. I turned her several times and then brought her back to the slip. I backed her in by pointing her bow at the boat kitty corner to us, and using the prop-walk to bring her in. It all went surprisingly smoothly! It definitely helps to have calm-and-collected Captain Jack there to coach me along the way.

My class, Drawing and Painting, was a little intense! There were 15 kids ages 3-8 with paint all talking over one another and over me! I had to abandon most of my lesson plan after the first 5 minutes, and just let them free paint. I do not know how preschool teachers manage! I could have really used a glass of wine and a sensory deprivation room after the whole experience. 5 classes left and I think I have a few good ideas about getting the situation under control from the start next time...it involves snacks.
We took the weekend off and had some fun! After my boating lesson we hit the Farmer's Market, and went to the beach.
