7am: Wake up, get ready for school
8am: Leave the house and get Amanda (fellow volunteer) on a bus headed toward the church, for her meetings with all the other CIS Field missionaries today.
8:30am: Arrive at school.
Morning: Listen to chapel from my classroom rather than disrupting it (again). Observe my student teacher. Enter grades in gradebook. Make photocopies. Supervise study hall. Eat lunch.
12pm: Leave school, go to the grocery store, go home.
Afternoon: Bake cookies. Sing and dance along to my music. Bake a coffee cake that looked deformed. Wash dishes. Fetch many more dishes from the highest cabinets. Listen to podcasts.
Buy sugar at our local produkti.
Clean my room. Refill sugar container.
I feel rather domestic.
Tonight all the CIS Field missionaries are coming over for pizza (that's being delivered) around 5:45pm, then having tea/coffee/desserts with us.
Because I'm a volunteer, and I teach at KCA, I'm not required to be at all of these meetings. In fact, I'm not really sure how many I'm required to attend. This year, I live in a great big house, with plenty of room (but it's not my Father's house), and I've enjoyed hosting people. I convinced Cliff to let me have everyone over at some point, especially as I see my role on the mission team as an "encourager."
In all my preparations, I've got a glimpse for what it's like for Heike and Colleen when they host visiting teams in their homes. (Granted, this is a small glimpse, because I don't have to prepare a full meal.)
I'm looking forward to having everyone over, and helping in this way.
