Green, Green and Greener
Scotland is green. Glasgow is green. The grass is so very green and there are no sprinklers. It rains almost every day. The trees are green, the walls are green with moss and even on a cloudy day- most of our days so far, the gray clouds have a green tinge to it. It is a feast for the eyes, especially for a girl coming from the desert.
We move into our flat on Wednesday and the kids start school on Wednesday. My orientation to the Law degree is tomorrow. Yes, I have finished my two books and have since read even more just to be prepared. And yes, all are invited to came for a visit. I am excited. Walking on campus is a dream. I feel younger- and at the university everything seems possible! Of course my classes haven't started... I don't even mind the rain. My hair is wavy and might even be called a "wee bit" curly. The kids' school is darling and super close to our flat. With my three little ones the total enrollment for the school will be 75. Each kid will be in a combined class with a grade higher. I can't even imagine such a small school! Atlas is going to a secondary school and he is stoked. He wants us to stay for 4 years so that he can graduate when he is 16 and have a Masters degree by the time he is 20! We will see... The "castle" in the back is part of my university. p.s. I'll post pictures and tell all about the flat when we move in!
