Wednesday: The kids and I started off by driving to the school so Emily could take a test to see if she is considered 'High Ability' here like she was in Indiana. She passed that, so she will be in 'AIG' for reading and math with other 4th graders in the morning. It is like she will have two teachers/classrooms this year. Kind of neat cause she will meet so many kids. I believe there are only 3 4th grade classes anyway! She was super excited to 'pass' the test and get in.

I have found another women's study at a Catholic church for newcomers to Charlotte area. It is based on the book, "After the Boxes are Unpacked: Moving On After Moving In" by Susan Miller - a Focus on the Family book. How awesome is it that one of my friends who moved to Ohio last year, Summer, mailed this book to me a few weeks ago. A friend had given it to her to read when they moved and asked that Summer pass it on when it was time. Anyway, I guess that this church does this study over and over and gets women plugged in in lunches, Girls Nights, bunco groups, etc. That study is on Wednesdays and the other one - on Jonah - is on Tuesdays. They both start in September. I will be praying about which one or whether I should do both!
