The Obligatory Back to School Photo

My kids aren't old enought to go to school yet. So I have zero pictures of them in the yard or in front of the door, giant empty backpack strapped to their tiny frame. But now I've found myself as a student again at 28 and I guess I've got to document it. Minus a giant backpack.

Most people don't have one year olds with car pajamas in their back to school pic. But mostly people don't have a one year old who doesn't want her mommy to put her down. It was almost as if she could sense I was about to leave the house for three hours. Its not like I want to spend every Saturday morning between now and Christmas in a classroom re-learning algebra that I've long forgotten. But sometimes we have to do stuff we don't want to do. The last time I took algebra was in 8th grade. Its been awhile. If you need me I'll be thinking of places to take a picture that don't have my gas meter in the background.

Sorry if you've said this already, but what kind of degree are you working on? Boo Algebra. No fun.

Dental hygiene. I don't think I've ever mentioned it. And I agree. Boo algebra. But in order to pass chemistry I need stupid algebra.

I took Algebra in college. It was on a computer. Sort of a do-it yourself course... (I know, I hear it too "Do you like to do-it yourself?" hahaha 40-year old virgin!) You would do a pretest, if you scored 100 you'd move on to the next chapter. If you didn't score 100, you'd just do the problems with the computer, and then you'd take the "test" and there you have it. I saw my teacher twice... the mid-term, and the final. Man, I miss college!
