back to school

My little man started school today.  He was not excited...however, when I picked him up this afternoon, he was in the best mood!  You can imagine how that made my day.  He likes his teacher and is looking forward to making new friends in his class.

It seems like just yesterday I was kissing these chubby cheeks.  Man, time sure flies! 

Now he's all grown up.  He was so irritated with me taking pictures of him all morning.  He kept saying, "Mom, this is so embarrassing!"   He has NO idea! 

As for me?  It is so unbelievably strange not to have a job.  Until now, it has really just felt like summer.  Not today.  I have spent fifteen long years in a classroom!  It is the weirdest feeling.  I am NOT complaining.  I woke up early, got JP and Preston ready and we were out the door by 7:30am.  I spent all morning studying.  I have a test Friday.  Couple that with the PAGES UPON PAGES of written exercises in the book, and I stayed pretty busy.  I was productive though...I finished reading chapter one, (which is what the quiz will cover), and ALMOST finished the fifteen pages of written work.  I took a break and dad and I went out for lunch.  That was nice.  He goes to his part time job tomorrow, I have no idea what to do with an empty house! 

One thing I am going to do is drive to North Greenville University.  After much research, I have decided that it will be most beneficial for me to take my writing/journalism course there.  I'm pretty excited.  The campus has changed SO MUCH since I was there the first time.  It will definitely be a gorgeous place to hang out and study when I have the time.  I know all of my Clemson pals were cheering me on to Tigerville, but it's not going to happen this time.  I'm heartbroken.  Promise.

Dabo was visibly upset when he received word I was not attending the University.  I think he, along with a few other close friends, was hoping for the opportunity to change the color of my blood over the coarse of the fall semester.  No such luck.

Well, that's all for tonight friends... this Gamecock is T.I.R.E.D!
