Long story short, Bonnie Jean and I will be taking care of 3 children very soon. My sister in law needed a place for them to stay for a while. This means switching wards (married student wards don't have primary) and losing my teaching calling before I got to give a single lesson. It also means a crash coarse in parenting techniques across a range of ages. I'll actually change a diaper for the first time in my life.

For the short story long: go here. For those unfamiliar with my wife's blog code names are in use.

Thankfully, the move in crew doesn't show up till the day after my oral final exam. But, unfortunately, this is all still happening just when I need time to focus on graduating. Crisis like to happen during finals at school. Just something I've noticed.

No kidding. It seemed every end of the semester was filled with outside crisis and distractions. I had a family member almost die one year. I broke my arm one year. I got in a bad accident and couldn't talk (for an oral final) one year. We had a blizzard that made getting to campus difficult one year...What is it with finals and cisis in our lives?

I don't know. I've managed to study a lot more by taking the last two days off work, and I've got less than 24 hours to develop laryngitis, but barring that I should be otherwise ok. But its still been a major time consumer preparing for kids to arrive. Just planning where all the furniture is going to go is a big project by itself.
