Whew! What a Week!

We have just finished up our first week at preschool and everything went very smoothly! I've got a good class, and Poptart really enjoyed her first week in her new class.

My mind and body are still trying to catch up to this new schedule however. The summer ruined me. I had forgotten how jam-packed my weeks are once I start back teaching. I'm tired, but at least now we get a few days off from school (preschool is only three days a week). I wish I had a few days off from typing, but I'm not quite that lucky.

Thanks for all your well wishes with Brad starting seminary. It really means alot to us. It's gonna take him forever - he's taking one or two classes a semester. This is for a couple of reasons. First is simply time. He will still be working full-time so two classes is probably the biggest load he can realistically have. Second is financial. We really, really, really want to avoid any type of student loan. Hopefully, if he keeps his class load small, we can pay semester-by-semester ourselves. This is our prayer!

Gogurt keeps calling seminary "cemetary." I hope that is not a sign. Love ya!

Just in case we forgot to say it (I believe we did)we are so very proud of you Brad it has been a long time coming but it just had to be in Gods timing (OH MY would things be soooo simple if it happened in our timing but then there would be no faith) but again we are very happy and proud of you and will pray for you and Amy she'll need our prayers as much as you it's going to be hard but if it's something you want and God wants you to have it will be ok. Love to all, Nana

Hey, there! Nice to "meet" you! Thanks for stopping by my blog—Alaska is a great place to live. I know that the thought of winter can be intimidating, but Alaska is so much more than snow. And it's a great place to raise a family, not to mention that our economy is more stable than most places right now. Can you tell that I'm on your husband's side?! ; )

Hope you have a great school year. I used to teach, so I know what a busy time this is for you!
