Still no luck on the photos, but latest ones are on Facebook if you’re interested.
I’m still having a hard time remembering to post, now that I’m able to sign in again! Monsterbat finished 6th grade with OHVA on Friday, so he’s officially a 7th grader now! Time flies too quickly, it seems. I’m enrolling him in another virtual school, Ohio Connections Academy. I’ve begun the paperwork, but I can’t complete it until OHVA sends me his report card and his state testing results. We should receive them in the next couple weeks.
In the meantime, I need to start getting all the OHVA materials ready to return to the school, including packing up the computer equipment. That’s going to be fun…NOT. But on the plus side, he’ll be getting new course materials from OCA sometime before school starts at the end of August. He’ll be excited about that!
Yesterday I attended a free writing workshop on writing a book. The class was taught by a professional local author and aimed to give writing and marketing advice to a general writing audience. I didn’t get to make many friends as I left soon after class ended, but next week I hope to stay and talk. If the instructor gives her permission, I’ll do a podcast on what I learned. Homework so far has included creating a synopsis and bringing a writing sample (which I already had) and writing a short outline of my novel. The outline was difficult for me, but I think it’s helped solidify my ideas for where the book is going. I’m sure I’ll refer to it as I edit the novel more.
Last month, Doug and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by going on a trip to the Hocking Hills area. We stayed in a beautiful cabin, did a little hiking (Rock House), and visited a bunch of tourist things. We had a lovely anniversary dinner at Salaam, and just spent time alone together. It was nice. Christopher spent the week having fun with his Grandma Bonnie and Aunt Autumn, going to movies, playing games, and other things.
That’s about it for now. I’ll try to remember to post before another month passes, but I make no promises! Have a lovely day.
