I could not make it to practice this week, and I felt really bad about leaving Oliver to fend for himself. Luckily Corinne and I set up a call to discuss a plan of action after the rough week before (why Corinne didn’t feel like helping earlier… who knows, but better late than never). She planned to sit in on at least the beginning of practice to keep things under control, so I hope things went smoothly for Oliver. Corinne and I went over some potential disciplinary tactics and ways of handling certain bad behaviors. It was nothing very inventive, but I was glad to know we’d have her help and support in the final weeks before the show.
