August has been pretty busy for our family. If you hadn't heard, I decided to go back to school and get my MBA (I was accepted toRice University). Well, I started the first week of the month and have been going to class two nights a week ever since, which makes for some VERY long days (usually out the door by 5:30 am and in by 11:00 pm or later). I think it is safe to say that Rachael isn't a huge fan of my schedule, as she is with the kids all day on Mondays and Wednesdays. Luckily though, I married a trooper and she has been very supportive of my decision, despite the fact that we don't really see each other that much anymore.
In addition to school, work, and the normal family business, we were also in charge of the ward activity a week ago. So while I was at work and school, Rachael was busy making phone calls, shopping, and basically planning the whole activity. We decided, along with our committee, to do a game night, and it actually turned out really well. We had 6 different tables where people could play a variety of games, as well as a chalk board for pictionary and a charades station. For the young kids, we had a movie room, and of course we had a nursery for the REALLY little kids. It was a good time, although I spent the entire activity in the nursery. I think that was Rachael's way of punishing me for being gone so much!!! It actually wasn't that bad...but nobody let the bishopric know that or I might end up there permanently. :)
