I have been having visions of traveling dancing through my head. Chris interest of study is proving to be a interesting one and full of all sorts of interesting internships and such that he can do.He recently got a email about a 8 week  internship in Kenya next summer which is through some government program,he would be studying carnivorous animals and would be living in a tent,sounds exotic doesn't it? I am not sure how I would survive without him for 8 weeks but the money he earned would have to go towards me going over there and seeing him.:)
Another program we are checking into is the Boren Award which looks fascinating and you get paid to do it,but the catch is you have to pay back a year of your services to the government.I am all over this one,but Chris not as much.:)

School is going great! I love it and am so glad I actually enrolled.:) English is great and I LOVE American Government and am learning a bunch.I am also getting to know kids from school which is great,one girl in particular I am hanging out with a bit,she is super nice and it is fun sitting with her at class.

Just read The Council of Dads: My Daughters, My Illness, and the Men Who Could Be Me this is a amazing book! It made me really think about life and how fragile it is,not just that but what kind of legacy would I try to leave my children if I was in his shoes? It was a easy read but had a lot of meat to it.Some of the language I am not crazy about though.

I also gobbled up Agnes Grey (Arcturus Paperback Classics)again.I have read it several times and yet still love it.I do not think it is quite up there with 'Jane Eyre' but it is excellent and I can relate to it.
