Spiderman and School
Chris started classes this week. He is going back for a second undergrad in Communications. Why a second undergrad? Because (a) the program is really good and is designed for working adults and (b) as his first degree was in psychology, he's a bit more comfortable starting with the basics rather than trying to get straight into a master's program.
So, for the next 22 months of our lives, his schooling is our focus. Basically ever Thursday (he gets the occasional odd break here and there but very few) from 6 to 10, he is in class. Each class lasts 5 weeks and then he switches classes and starts all over again. So, needless to say, he's going to be very busy in the days off because he's got between 10 to 20 hours of homework every week.
To celebrate this momentous transition, I felt he really needed something to lift his spirits. Get him properly outfited for school so that he could feel confident.
So I bought him a spiderman lunchbox.
And filled it with school supplies.
Just to make him laugh because I can.
