It's already the middle of August and that means that classes are starting soon. I fly down to North Carolina tomorrow morning and then have a week full of orientations (anthropology department, teaching assistants, graduate school) before starting class and teaching next week. For our last weekend together in Boston we had our last trip to the beach and spent a lot of time packing. Our apartment now has bare walls and boxes stacked half nearly to the ceiling.
Amanda will fly down in about a week and her parents will be driving down our stuff from Boston, to be followed a few weeks later by my parents driving out our South Dakota stuff.
