Back to school! Back to school, to prove to Dad that I'm not a fool!
I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight!
Ohhhh, back to school! Back to school!

Today is my first day on campus at Erskine Theological Seminary. I'll be on campus this week, 9:00-5:00, Monday thru Friday, for Introduction to Theological Education. It is decidedly an unexciting class, so in a way it's nice to get it over with in one painful swoop this week, even though I'd rather be painting walls and unpacking boxes (no, seriously, I really want to be doing that!). Then starting next week, I will be on campus all day Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I'll post that schedule next week since I can't see that far ahead in time (but I think it'll look something like "sleep, drink coffee, lectures, study, eat, drink coffee, study" and then repeat). It's great to be back at school!

In other news, Sarah has been working since Thursday and won't have her first day off until Saturday! That's right folks, 9 straight days of work!!! Please pray for her perseverance and sanity, as well as safety on the roads (she has a 45 minute drive to work). For those of you who haven't heard, she's working at 2 sales offices for the Cliffs Communities (the Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards and at Keowee Falls). They are a series of communities based around golf courses and gorgeous water front properties. These places are pretty incredible, but don't take it from me... Kevin Costner likes 'em!

So that's a quick update from our neck of the woods. I'll probably be able to post a little more often now since I'll have lunch breaks this week.

Gosh, I wish my school had started...haha. I'm getting kinda bored, and now that it's raining outside again, it's even more boring! Sounds like you'll be muy busy! Haha, I hope to see ya soon, and that both you and the missus will remain sane! :)
