The Next Chapter
Gina started school today. School in a city not Cleveland, and I don't mean just down the road in Akron or something. Columbus is both near and far. Having been in Columbus now two weekends in a row, I find the drive fairly non-eventful. And I welcome the Richland County signs as the rough halfway point in the trip.
We didn't have a going away party for Gina. It didn't feel right to do that. Gina is not going so far away, and she will be around. Not as often as I'd like, but not so infrequently so as to be intolerable.
The "teacher training" will be completed before we know it, and then she gets a week off between that and classes starting. She'll be back for a glorious week and I am already looking forward to it.
