I'm posting today from Texas A&M, where I'm at a New Student Conference with our son, Gray. Yesterday we sat through information-packed orientations until our heads exploded, and today hope to get him into the right classes he needs to start his Aerospace studies. My husband, Tom, was to have been here with us, but got sick at the last minute and wasn't able to come.... so we've been on our own down here. I actually felt ok about Tom missing the orientations, but the course selection process has me uptight without his help....ack! Wish us luck this afternoon. I'm nervous!!
But listen. Being on an amazing college campus is so inspiring! My own academic career (unfortunately) got put on a really long hold when the babies started coming, but just being around an institution of higher learning makes me want to go back and finish that degree. Hmmmm.....I'll have to look into that! There is still so much I want to learn. I want to never stop learning and growing - and it's good to get out and re-experience academia as a reminder that there is a whole world out there, still waiting to be discovered.
I hope ya'll have had a great week. I'm still officially away from blogging this month, but I think of you each day and look forward to getting back to "regular" life!
