now the waiting has begun.
We have started on our way,
time to think of Christmas Day.
All of us have been trying new things this fall. We have all been stretching ourselves in new ways which I find interesting as it is the Michaelmas season--a season that pushes us to engage our will, fight our inner dragons, and try out new things before the winter months of introspection.
Nelson and I embarked on a new exercise journey and managed to run a 5K this fall. I was nervous as it was quite a strenuous, hilly course with thousands of runners. They were quite strict about the amount of time you were allowed to be on the course and I was worried I would be too slow. Well, I did it. My goals were to not cheat and to not come in last. I achieved both :)
The time has flown by again, the seasons have turned from summer to autumn to that quiet time when the leaves have fallen and the world, as May Sarton says, is "honed down to structure." We've been busy with so many new experiences.
The college hunt has continued. We visited Wheaton College which has rapidly risen to the top of the list. This college was originally a women's college and, because of this, has many old traditions which the students seem to venerate. The curriculum and offerings seem well-matched to our girl as well. Helen has visited twice and interviewed.
