Experiment :O)

I officially begin grad school in one week. I'm pretty excited about my first class. Issues and Trends in the Special Education classroom. When Brian had this class he always asked me questions about ADD and ADHD, so I think the material will be new and fresh. It's going to be weird starting homework again, but I think I can manage. I even did a five page paper for Brian while he was crazy busy with football starting back up (ssshhhh...). I'm pretty excited and ready to start this adventure!

We actually purchased some sheers to cut Piper with. Brian attempted it for the first time a few weeks ago. She looked pretty good aside from having stripes down her back from the clip not being short enough. I don't think Brian was brave enough to go that short. I finally took the sheers from him and went to town in areas that were longer than others and around her face and tail. She really likes being shaved. Brian's comment after the experiment, "I guess I should have watched the instructional DVD." Her nickname has been stripey until we master the technique. I totally respect groomers. It looks easy, but that is not the case.

The End of the Beginning

1. Brian starts pre-season in 2 weeks... :O(
2. We are thinking about going camping this weekend, but I think it may be way too hot.
3. Classes for me begin in about 4 weeks... eeekkk!
4. Brian keeps talking about getting a truck. It's the only thing on his radar! TACOMA!
5. Piper got shaved this summer. I think it was one of the best decisions we ever made. Now I'm wondering how much a set of sheers cost so I can do it myself from now on.
6. Work has been INSANE!!! I feel like it has been a full moon for about 3 weeks now.
7. Running the Miners Mile in about a month. One of my favorite races because so many people at my work place participate!
8. Really looking forward to see what the Lord has in store for us this semester!
