And So It Begins….

Today marked the first day of the 2015-16 School Year for the three youngest Geylings and despite it being wickedly hot (for Santa Barbara), it was a good day for all…

Although Rudy is officially a 1st grader this year, his special ed class is a K/1 combo that mainstreams with one of the Kindergarten classes on campus.  As a result, Rudy’s schedule looks a lot like it did last year (with an additional hour and fifteen minutes at the end of the day after the K’s leave).  Not that Rudy had ANY inhibitions about going to school but the familiarity of his daily routine is nice and will aid in what we hope will be a smooth transition back into a structured day.  He was so happy to see his friends and teachers today.  Rolf and I dropped him off and as Rolf started to push his wheelchair from the parking lot toward his classroom, Rudy said “No Dad!  Walk!”.  Rolf took Rudy out of his chair and he (very proudly) made a bee line for his classroom the second his feet hit the ground!  Ha Ha Nurse Viviana reported at the end of the day that he had a great first day.  We are so grateful he is starting the school year off healthy and with great energy and enthusiasm for learning.  If today is any indication, this is going to be a fun year of progress and growth for the boy wonder.

With that, we say one last final goodbye to Summer 2015 and set our sights on the next big family “milestone” – Wilson’s college departure on September 4th!!  Yikes!!

Bye Bye Summer!
Bye Bye Summer!

  1. What an amazing life for the Geyling family. I am enjoying the adventure you are on. Thanks for always being a light Trish.

  2. Great seeing the family at the Westmont/APU game! Praying for Wilson as he embarks and I am excited for another year with Max and FCA. Peace and grace,

  3. Congrats all ’round! Great to see you out and about last week – hope Wilson’s first year is terrific. (Can’t remember – APU or Biola??)

  4. Cob is an ancient, inexpensive building method that VIYC is using to construct a
    meeting place for their volunteer group. Straw or hay is used to form continuity between layers.
    A lot of thought should go into the decision to build this way.

  5. There are currently a few of these sites that provide this kind of services.
    Barcelona has no potent tools to defend for long periods of time
    ‘ you will probably concede a goal. Well, probably your team’s default formation is the
    best to use as it was especially designed to suit for
    you players. They use ex skilled association football players to
    supply key moments from one in every of the matches they’re look and that they then report back to the television reporter, telling
    him that player X has simply won a free-kick however it’s still 0-0 at previous Trafford.
