school time

9 days until Ian starts the first grade!

Ah, It's that magical time of the year when I get to send my overly-active 6 year old back to school. His clothes and supplies are hanging in his closet, and he is not so patiently waiting to use his new things. Ian loves new clothes, so I have to remind him several times a day that he cannot wear them until the first day of school. He loves shoes even more than he loves clothes.....I had to hide his shoes to get any peace.

We get to meet his new teacher the day before school starts. My only hope is that she isn't offended by class clownery, or her and Ian might never get along.

Today, I start my college adventure!

Well, today I start my twice weekly classes that will introduce me to college life, and take my G.E.D pre-test to establish which classes I should take. After that, I start my 5 weeks of general education classes. Then I can take the G.E.D test!

The weekend of fun is over. Huzzah!

Many events took place over these last few days. ALL my in-laws came into town, and we traveled all over Oregon on various quests for fun. We went to the beach and froze our butts off! I know, anywhere else we would be sweating! But not at the coast! we couldn't stay that long because of the crappy weather, but we did get to see Pat's aunt Dani and uncle don. They're peachy keen!
The next day after our ocean adventure, we hit the road and drove somewhere past Salem Oregon to visit my father in laws' friends' parents' cabin. wow that's complicated. But the cabin was awesome! It was right on the water! So we spread my in laws' mothers' ashes while we were down there. It was a nice spot. I wanted to stay there forever! Then today we had a wolfington family reunion. I met allot of people that I probably won't remember by tomorrow. But everyone now knows me as the girl who made the awesome deviled eggs. In fact, I was introduced to everyone as Patrick's wife Sarah who made the deviled eggs that were just wonderful!
I'm just glad that it's over and we can relax now. We're all tired and need some time to get back to a normal schedule! Damn it!
