The great teacher

Tomorrow is Eleanor’s last day of school, and I am sad. Most moms I know tear up at the beginning of the school year, sending a child off to kindergarten or middle school or beyond. I am more than happy to send my children back to school at the end of summer, particularly at the end of a Texas summer when we have exhausted every swimming pool, museum, and movie. Endings get to me though. This is when I feel the passage of time most acutely.

Back to our regular programming

Back in February, I bought an immense GRE practice book (literally the “5 lb. Book of GRE Practice Problems”), and I’ve spent the past two months working my way through it. Yesterday, I took the GRE, and earned a score higher than the score I got back in college. Granted, I barely studied then because I was taking tests nearly every week.
