Back to school for all the kids…and me. Yes, I said me but more about that later. Gracie started high school and seems to like it. Of course, all of the teachers are “weird”. Highlights include gym 8th period, Honors English 9th and the swim team. Owen started back at his school. He had a rough summer with nearly 3 weeks off but had a good first day and not so good second day. Cameron began 5th grade and has his two best buds in his class! And Gracie’s old teacher who adored her.

Summer events included the Police concert at Jones Beach, visit from UK friends, a loong drive to Hilton Head where it rained a lot and a fab BBQ at Chez Swine. And I decided to go back to graduate school.

Today I enrolled as a non-matriculated student at the Palmer School of Library Science. I was planning to take the Intro class but was swayed to take an elective in Serving Diverse Populations. It’s an exciting opportunity to bring some of my life experience having a child with autism to the career I hope to have. I am both excited and scared. Knit on.

    You know how impressed I am. You’re going to be a great librarian!

    I filled out the form for my class, now I just need to get the HR signatures (tuition remission stuff) and go hand it in. Maybe I’ll actually get something done this semester.

    Yeah! That’s quite an accomplishment, I say, to get one’s children squarely settled into the school year. Yeah – for a smooth adjustment to High School.

    so the Police are still performing? I’ll tell Ed. We went to see Sting in concert back in 1994.
    I need to say this. You look G-R-E-A-T.
    I think it’s great you went back to school. One day I might as well. So, you are studying to become a librarian? what does non-matriculated mean? in high school we had to take matriculation exams…but I have a feeling it’s not connected to that.
