Hi all, Where did the week go? The kids started back to school. My son, the freshman, is the only one who didn't want to even talk about school until the day it started, so when I offered several times, to go walk around the school and find his classes, he did not want to. Okay. So, when he got home the first day of school, he said, "I didn't find one class on time." "I thought I was never going to find the gym." Which my daughter, the senior, replied,"We have two!" My son just shook his head and said, "Don't tell me that, I found the one I needed!!" The next day, I asked him how it went, and in his proudest manner said, "I was only late to two classes today!!" We're getting there!!!!!!!! :) My daughter, again the senior, is determined to enjoy everyday of this year, and so she should. She's a fairly good student, if its a music class, and her schedule is fairly easy this year. That's as it should be!!! She'll have a ball!!
Our youngest started junior high (lots of milestones this year). He is also playing football. The games start this Wednesday. I do not mind football, until the weather starts to get "Yucky." I think he plays tightend, and maybe kicker. They are still trying out for that one. He is our little social butterfly! Its gonna be a fun 6 years with him!!!!!!
I started my new job on Thursday. I got a job (part time) at our local library. The gals I have met so far are very nice and eventhough its different than I thought, I really think I will enjoy it. I just love being around books. Trouble is, I see all this stuff that looks good, that I haven't read yet, and my list is already growing!! Yikes!!
I also started my bible study last week. It really was an introduction class, so the first lesson is this week. I have a great group of ladies, who are hungry to study God's word. We are doing "Covenant". It is the Precept Study, by Kay Arthur, that I mentioned in a much older post. They are pretty in depth, and more time consuming than most studies. I also start teaching piano lessons today. I only have 4 students today, and then 3 on Thursday, when I get home from the Library. Not too bad!
I did have a special priviledge on Sunday, I was asked by a gentleman back in August to sing at a veterans home here in Grand Rapids. I was so honored to so. I sang "God Bless America" and "Amazing Grace My Chains Are Gone." Just when you think your going to go do something and bless them, they end up blessing you!!!!!!!! I wore my MOM Marine Shirt, and several of them gave me a "Sempre Fi." I wish I had the time to hear their stories. I'm sure they are amazing.
Yes, there has been knitting. Seems like I have pumped out a lot of dishcloths, so fast, that I haven't even had time to get pictures, before they are out the door. Two of them are on their way to Guatemala today with my girlfriend. She is flying back there to see her ailing father, so I made a couple for her mom. I hope to finish up my socks, I am anxious to start a new pair. I also am almost done with a cowl. Pictures soon!! Thanks for your visit, and I hope I didn't ramble too much!! Have a great week!!
