I did the first week's work of my online class last Sunday before leaving on a business trip and used a comp day on my return to get week two done; from here on out, though, we'll settle into a pattern of schoolwork every Saturday.
Hubs is driving to Portland on Mondays, now, for the final stretch on his M.Div. Daughter Haley is back at college in California. Son Daniel hasn't started classes yet, but he made it to the 5:30 am polo-team practices this week (!) and has his first pep-band gig tonight. Monday night he goes back to his mom's place for the next two weeks, ready to start actual classes on Tuesday. Senior year. Both Chris and Daniel graduate in June! Haley and I will finish a year later.
On Monday I snapped a picture of Chris heading off to class with his backpack, but he didn't want to see it posted on the internet. What, no more back-to-school photos when you're 45?!
See, though, 20 photos of kids' journeys to school from around the world (Global Citizen).
