It feels like there has been lots going on around here. But I'm not sure I really have that much to report... I just feel like things have been busy. A few updates.
Greg started the bar prep course right away after graduation, and we expected it to sort of ramp up to the craziness for the bar (it is July 30-August 1, by the way), but that has not been how it has gone so far. The website says something about the homework being 4-12 hours a night, and at the time I laughed. What kind of range is that? But in any case, he is doing 12+ hours a day (including the classes), but generally gets home in time to say goodnight, so we get to see him most days. I think we are feeling pretty confident so far. He also got his grades back from last semester, and he had his best semester ever. He got the top grade in the class in two of his classes, one of which was Estate Planning, which is one of the types of law he plans on practicing, so that seems pretty good. He also made the Dean's list.
The kids and I went to Disneyland a few weeks ago for our last hurrah before our passes expired. It was fun (we went with some friends) but I got thirty six phone calls for work that day. THIRTY SIX. Before 4pm (when my phone died, from so much call use). It was insane. Anyway, so I felt bad for the friends who were with us who had to keep going on without me while I took a call (or thirty); my kids don't really mind because they are used to my day being choppy due to work because it's just part of working from home (obviously it's a pretty serious perk that I can even do things like take my kids to Disneyland or wherever during the week), but that day was really sort of ridiculous. Here we are, enjoying that last day!
