Last time I wrote about some transitions in the Klassen household. Now that our eldest’s graduation is behind us, and the boys are busy with their summer jobs, here are the latest steps we’re taking this summer:
Tap Dance Class—I’m literally taking (and learning) new steps with this one. Seven friends from church ages 35-65 signed up together for a beginning adult tap class. Here we are, trying to learn steps from our talented and thankfully patient instructor. So proud of these ladies who were brave enough to try something new and are checking items off of their bucket lists!
College orientation—I recently attended freshman orientation in neighboring South Dakota with my son. Honestly, I thought the two days were a bit overwhelming, and I’m not even the one attending! There was lots of information to absorb and many steps to accomplish (registration, juggling class schedules, student loan processing, etc.) and still more steps ahead.
New Age—No, not that kind of new age. 🙂 I stepped into a new year by having my birthday during the college orientation. Not exactly a party, but I was content to spend time with a friend whose son is attending the same university, and with my eldest son, who bought me a DQ blizzard, which I prefer to cake anyway.
Galleys—I’m now working on the second-to-last step for my next book, the pre-galleys of The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill.
Payback—Our son received his first paycheck yesterday and his first hard lesson on the reality of taxes. 🙂
What new steps have you taken (or learned) lately? Hope your summer is off to a great start!
