Friday Finds #178

The First Week of May (Yea!)

Are you as excited as I am to have May turn the corner? The weather has been beautiful and the school-year term of lessons is wrapping up.

If you’re like me, that means that the next two weeks won’t be necessarily less work, but just a slightly different schedule and routine with group classes, Zoom recital prep, end-of-year evaluation meetings, and more.

A change of routine is something that I always welcome with open arms and an eager attitude.

May, we’re so glad you’re here!


Rebekah has several great tips in this post that helped me in my planning!
