April Calendar Strangeness

April is just around the corner, and the calendar is a bit strange, so this post is to clarify who is serving on what weekends.

First, I want to mention the two strange things that could catch you by surprise and how you can remedy them:

Surprise: The first of the month is a Sunday, which means that the first Saturday is actually before the 2nd Sunday, the second Saturday is before the third Sunday, and so on.

Remedy: Count Sundays, not Saturdays, when you are trying to figure out when you serve.

Surprise: There are five Sundays in April.

Remedy: Count Sundays from the first Sunday of the month. Don't think of yourself as "the last week of the month" or "the week before the last week of the month." It's the week 3 team's turn to cover the 5th Sunday.

OK, with that being said, here's the actual schedule:
  • March 31-April 1 = Week 1 Team
  • April 7-8 = Week 2 Team
  • April 14-15 = Week 3 Team
  • April 21-22 = Week 4 Team
  • April 28-29 = Week 3 Team
Thanks for serving, everyone!
