I am thrilled that Buster is getting to homeschool and attend LEAP for Kindergarten. I was very nervous, and so was he when it finally came time for his first day. Luckily for us, his teacher is a member of our church, and he already knows her which I think made a lot of difference. When we picked him up, he was in a great mood, and could not stop talking about what a great day he had. It is such a relief, and I can't wait to hear about all of the fun things he does this year!

While Chiggie and I were at school, and of course the King at work, the little kids got to have fun at Mema's with all of the little animals on her mini-farm. I was so jealous dropping them off, I almost didn't have the gumption to leave at all. It did help knowing that the kids were having such a great time!

For me the decision to keep going in school was not an easy one. Truthfully, I feel plenty busy at home, and I don't especially love loading myself down with extra book work. However, that was always the plan eventually. I began to realize that the longer I put it off, the harder it would get to start back up again. So, after a semester off, I decided there was no time like the present. The most difficult aspect so far has been the residency requirement. I have to be on campus for a week at a time every couple of semesters. This was a bit of a nightmare logistically for a myriad of reasons, but mostly because the first one was Chiggie's first week of school. Talk about feeling conflicted. I was home for the first day though, and everything from then on out went smoothly. We all had great weeks, and I am far more relaxed about the future school wise. I will spend the next two semesters in class, and then begin my practicum this summer. I am taking things a day at a time. I have participated in community counseling sessions and am enjoying myself so far.. I didn't realize how nervous I would be, but it gets a little easier each time!

Wow! Once again, it's been too long. I really don't like trying to play catch up, but I also don't like missing out on documenting certain things either. So, we'll see how this goes. August was an insane month for our entire family. Some of it had to do with the fact that I started back up with school. Some of it had to do with the fact that Chiggie started High School. The rest, I am not really sure, but it was just one big jumbled up blur really. Chiggie's first week of school, and ever since have gone wonderful. I am so happy that she is adjusting well both socially and academically. We are confident that we made the right decision, but do miss having her home. Here is her on her very first day, all grown up!
