Now that school has started for the girls, we have started full time language studies. I just wanted to give you a quick snapshot of how our days play out so you will understand why we don’t call or reply to texts quickly 🙂

Our days are really full of school during normal waking hours for you Texas people. I am at a bit of a loss with calling home and skyping during the week, so we will have to plan to do that on the weekends. Your Friday and Saturday, my Saturday and Sunday, will be the best days for seeing each other! So call, Facetime, and Skype away on weekends! We will do the same. 🙂 Oh! We do have club meeting on Sunday at 10am (your Saturday 8pm), so that is not a good time to call 😉
