Problem:  Kindergarten is a full school day here.  Possible Solution: Preschool (so Jonathan gets used to the idea of going to school). Guess what?  Georgia has a free “Pre-K” program to better prepare 4-year-olds for kindergarten Problem: Pre-K is a mandatory full school day, too.  If parents pick children up early or drop them off […]

Well, there’s only 6 days left until Christmas, so we figured it was high time for us to set up our Christmas tree. Actually, we’ve had the thing in our garage since Thanksgiving, but with all of the end-of-semester stuff going on we simply didn’t have the time or motivation to put it up.

The sleeping bear awakes

One big disadvantage to being a full-time college student is that several times a year I am forced to go into “blog hibernation” while I hunker down and wrap up outstanding papers and projects before the end of the semester.  As I look over my post history for the past two years, things tend to […]

You know it’s humid when….

…your glasses fog up when you step out of your car. Seriously.

Back to music

We are just about settled in, though we have yet to go through our "miscellaneous" boxes and decorations.
