It’s been a little quiet on the blog lately, largely due to the start of school and an online class that is taking more of my time than I had anticipated. I’m venturing into the world of graduate school with what I thought was baby steps, but even one class has me writing a longer paper than I wrote for my senior undergrad thesis!
Since we are looking at the commencement of a new school year, I thought it would be appropriate for the words of the week to be something related to scholastic endeavors.

And as a little cultural tid-bit for my non-Mennonite readers…
Most Amish children only attend school through 8th grade. It is thought that getting too much education would be prideful. Pride is a sin preached against very strongly, and higher education is strongly discouraged.
