I didn't think I'd be doing a "back to school" post this year.
Vicki (back row, middle) with her first grade class and beloved teacher, Mrs. Kelly, at Wayne Thomas School in Highland Park, Illinois - 1964-65.
Katie's deferred her acceptance to The University of Glasgow until next year (and will likely be applying to some other UK universities in the meantime... why not?), so will continue working for the next year, and diligently saving.
Ali's busy running a small business -- which, by the way, is good for everyone's health around here! She has employees returning to school, so has just hired two new people -- one of them, a young man in high school, I believe (I met him ever-so-briefly yesterday), is a knitter! Yay!!
Maddy just wasn't sure this year. Well, truthfully, she was on a bit of a rollercoaster -- it's been quite a year. She'd taken steps toward returning, but I thought she'd decided not to go when, sometime last week, I got a frazzled call. I talked her down, and we (sort of) calmly discussed the pros and cons -- good reasons for putting off school vs. really? because of that? reasons -- enlarging the frame and looking at the big picture and, well...
...it's back to school! The next two weeks will find us all in transition mode once again!

There's also still two (busy) weeks of knitting... have you made your guess?
Have a great weekend, everyone.
