Last night and tonight are Parent/Teacher nights at school. That means four hours both nights waiting for no more than a total of 10 parents to come find out their kid has 100% in my class. However, it does afford me some serious drawing time!! And since I've been having so much fun with my Drawing 2 class on our current assignment,
I decided to do one of my own.

It took 3 1/2 hours . . . 3 1/2 hours drawing, coloring and talking to parents sporadically. And at the end of it, I was walking across the gym and from 30 yards away, my Vice Principal says "Stephanie!" and waved me over frantically. He told me I had black smeared all around my mouth and chin from the black colored pencils I was using. Just great. My very own 5 o'clock shadow. . . How many parents did I talk to like that?! When that dad walked by and asked me if I had scared all my students away, was that what he was referring to!?!?

Oh well. I decided stuff like that will always happen to me. All that matters is that I have a clear conscience at the end of each day. And having a 5 o'clock shadow doesn't make me a bad person.

But I'm still glad Parent/Teacher nights are almost over.
