I've been impatiently waiting for classes to begin, but the tension has broken as fall term commenced last Friday. I may be singing a slightly different tune by December, but my enthusiasm for the topics should easily carry me through most of the term.
We also had the pleasure of hosting Chris' parents last weekend. Playing tour guide in a town that we are still getting to know can prove to be a bit challenging, but we took them through most of our favorite spots and found some new things along the way. While touring the capitol building, we discovered that the lower floor has a visitor's center complete with educational videos about the history of the building and Idaho's government as well as the building's recent renovation/expansion. Apparently I succumbed to a nap part-way through one of the longer versions. Darkened room with comfy chairs...gets me every time.
