Conference week is always a little strange. The children are startled by the early dismissal ("Why are we leaving? We are not playing? How come groups are so short?"). The longer afternoons feel lumpy; I had one conference yesterday, one today, and eight on Wednesday. And despite years of conferences, and knowing that despite how it looks like two hours of prep time on your schedule but it's really drop-in conferences, paperwork, and sudden crises, I still planned two meetings and a mega-planning session.
Plus side, Friday I went to Target and found little red capes on clearance, so this week we will spend one shortened afternoon completing our superhero ensembles.
