For the Vigil …

For the Vigil …

Testing the release mechanism for the black curtain the we dropped in front of the reredos on Maundy Thursday. Now it needs to drop and reveal the Easter flowers at the Easter Acclamation at the Vigil tonight 🙂

Class & housing update :)

Class & housing update :)

So it turns out the same Introduction to Drawing class that Crisp wanted to take that was full is being offered by Purchase as a summer class– two classes a week for the month of June 🙂 So we’ve gone ahead and registered him for that. That way he’ll still have July and most of August off, but will have the 2 credits before the start of the fall semester and can take things a little easier and just take 13 credits.

And Crisp just came in to announce that there has just been an email from Community Engagement saying that they have found a double room for Crisp and Giovanni (the friend who he wants to room with) in Fort Awesome 🙂 This is fantastic news! Fort Awesome has double and triple rooms with private bathrooms, air conditioning and elevators 🙂 If you click on the link there are virtual room tours, and the double rooms are a huge step up from the tiny doubles in the freshman dorms 🙂 The convenience store and Starbucks are also in the same building.

Class registration

Class registration

I was given a big responsibility this afternoon- registration for Crisp’s fall classes opened at 2:15pm and Crisp would be in class at that point, so I was tasked with jumping online (it’s all done by computer) at 2:15 dead and registering for all the classes. They fill up very quickly and as Crisp just recently declared as a double major in Anthropology and Media Studies there are some very specific classes that need to be taken in the fall so as not to fall behind. They open registration to particular groups at a time, based on how many credits you already have, so some classes may already be full or nearly so.

Luckily I was able to get Crisp into all four of the important classes (Introduction to Media Studies, Media Institutions & Forms, Introduction to Modern Art, and Film & Anthropology); my only failure was Introduction to Drawing that was really a 2 credit filler to make up the numbers and get some of the non-major credits that are needed- that was already full at 2:15, but Crisp is 2nd on the waitlist, so if a couple of people drop it they’ll email and there’ll be 24 hours to grab it. Alternatively we can look for something else 🙂

The Great Printing of Easter …

The Great Printing of Easter …

… it is finished.

It makes a huge difference now that we put all of the Triduum services in one booklet (even if it is 40 pages long!), and that we do the exact same service at 9 & 11 on Easter Day so we can reuse the bulletins from one at the next 🙂

It’s quite warm today, but so far Faith has not been much of a water dog. Today I found out she loves a good wallow!

I guess I know who’s going to need a good brushing when we get home!
