I can’t wait to see the boys today. After having them home for two weeks, I was glad to have a quiet house, which meant a clean house, but I will be so glad to see them this afternoon. To hear about their day, to hear how Chip’s first day in Symphonic band was, how his schedule was adjusted. Parker started a new 6 weeks, which means gym class again. I know how thrilled he was (not), but he also had his drum lesson today. So, that was a highlight for him.
I’ve managed to wash some clothes, dry some clothes, cancel some services that are costing us money, make a pot of coffee, and listen to some excellent old music. The air is cool and crisp–inside the house. Yeah, it’s 68 or 69–gas is so blasted expensive, so I figure I’ll just keep it cool in here and keep a sweater on during the day. I can let it warm up when everyone else comes home.
We’re startin a new Beth Moore study on Thursday, and I’m very excited. It’s The Patriarchs–the study of Abraham, Moses, and I’m not sure which other patriarchs. It is supposed to be awesome! I can’t wait to see my friends again. See, I’m not so different from the kids–I’m anxious to get back to learning for the social aspect as much for the learning!!
