Back to school season

Back to school means a whole different thing when you're no longer a student...I can't park on campus (not that big of a deal, but less convenient since I'm in the car from taking the kids to preschool anyway); the neighbors and people walking by our house are louder; meetings, meetings, and more meetings; Fazolis for lunch after church is a thing of the past...sigh.

But the good thing about the Saturday before school starts is that it's the anniversary of our engagement! Neither one of us can remember the exact date, but I do know it was the Saturday before the start of school, 1996... Patrick decided he wanted to get a roommate to help pay for his house, so he had me read three ads he was thinking about putting in the paper, and the last one said something along the lines of, "I don't want a roommate, I want you. Will you marry me?" And the rest is history... :)

Happy Back to School!
