I am gratefully surprised by how well everything came together--a great beginning!
Michael left Monday to attend a workshop in Wisconsin on Tuesday, so I insisted on a goodbye selfie.
After the first class in Muncie, I went directly to Monday Night Meal at Stephan and Karen's. If that were not possible, I probably would have turned down the teaching job.

Rebecca joined us for part of the walk, very happy and comfy, interacting with us and pulling off her socks.
Mike arrived back after 1 AM and I never woke up. Evenings, after class, I am wiped out. Now I can relate to Karen and other teachers who are at it non-stop for most of the day!
Malachi's milestones this week: he got his license and began driving to school on Wednesday; and was chosen for a major role in the school play!

Thursday, Kayla and Rebecca left to babysit cousin Jude. I walked only part way, as far as the Communications Arts Center to see the new entry way.

Jared flew in from Arizonain and took the shuttle from Indy airport. I picked him up after class at Cracker Barrell.
Friday morning, after collecting all (or most) of his things and packing his car, he was eager to be off and see his Anderson University friends!
Mike and I had a date night. We went to see the new movie War Room, about spiritual warfare.
Afterwards we had trouble finding the right place to eat--one was too crowded and noisy, another too cold, the next was closing. Finally we settled on Mexican, perfect!
Saturday, as I sit here looking out at the birds, suddenly a big beautiful orange one lands on the hummingbird feeder and figures out there is nothing there for him. I watch and manage one photo between the slats of the window blinds.
Mike has been pain-free the last two days and even dreamed last night that he was again able to exercise and do anything he wanted. I wonder how his day is going at the Meridian Services Family Fest?
That is where the PhyXTGears' workshop is located. The team members set up a couple robots and some fun activities for the youngsters attending the fest.
