I survived the first two days of school. The transition from summer vacation back to work wasn't quite as painful as I'd anticipated. In fact, it's just like I never had a holiday. Wait a second... that's not a good thing.
Anyway, as the saying goes, I'm back in the saddle.
We've had two days of meetings and... church. We all attend an opening mass at the beginning of the school year. I took this photo with my cell phone from the choir loft (I was in the choir). People were just starting to file in around 8:30 this morning.
The mass is held in the professional concert hall downtown. It's a beautiful facility with great acoustics. There were about 25 of us in the choir plus two cantors, an organist, and a 9-piece brass band.
Tomorrow is the first day with students. The grade 10 students come for orientation, then on Thursday grade 11 and 12 students have their first day. It will be busy. Yep, we hit the ground running!
