Saturday School

Today we unpacked nothing.

Today we restarted homeschool, to be sure we are organized and set up before Monday comes.  We made sure everyone has the right books, tests are ready, supplies are where we think they are, and new star charts are hanging up.  Mostly everyone was excited about new school boxes!

But before we could even do that, we sent Nathan off with a tornado cleanup kind of breakfast!

We have had two really good days in a row, and that feels good after five hard years, right?

Tonight I am working at the hospital and Nathan is at the tiny blue house, picking up bits and pieces left behind (like the coat closet, oops), before the children get their weekly movie night with popcorn.  He worked so hard this week!  The opera is sent off, the new musical has draft notes sent to the composer, and tonight he finished the staging notes for Broadcast, which is being produced in Philadelphia next month!  We are so excited, and I am so proud of him!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
