it’s been a while…
I’ve had a crazy couple of days since my last post. We had our District Fine Arts event in Decatur, IL on Friday and Saturday. All of our students did an excellent job and our Youth Choir, a Small Vocal Ensemble and Laura’s Poem advanced to Nationals in August. It was a great weekend, but I’m absolutely exhausted from it. I still haven’t recovered.
While waiting for the first main session to start. I noticed a flashing ball-shaped item fall from the ceiling. It took me a moment to realize what it was, but apparently a light broke, fell and burst into flames as it descended. This, of course, is not good. When the fireball landed it started a small fire on the carpet. I quickly ran over to extinguish it. Here’s a photo of the burns.
I’d like to think I’m a hero, but the truth is it was a small flame and probably would have burn itself out fairly quickly.
