Well we have one class down and eight to go…. I was really nervous when i got there because I am shy around new people. But once the class got started I started to become less anxious. There were about thirteen people in class which is good, I was afraid there would be a whole bunch of people. We were the youngest couple there by a year. Most of the people were over 35. We did introductions and talked about what we were proud of and I said my two dogs Sam and Evan:) Ryan said his marriage and his wife (suck up) LOL. The class was three hours long and we sat in these pews that were hurting by butt. So I was like a kid that wouldnt sit still. I kept on moving around. The teacher of the class said that he would be taking notes each week about our participation in group. Well that just put my anxiety level back up there. I am not really a person that speaks in groups and now I have to. He said he was not there to judge but that he just wrote down how we were doing. So, Ryan was talking alot through class. I will start to speak up next week. I got to pace myself. Everyone in the group seemed nice. I hope to make friends so we can keep in touch after class.
The majority of the class talked about was DCFS was and how they operated. We got a ton of stuff to take home and read, and also we get homework each week. I know I will learn a lot for these classes and hope they dont scare Ryan away. I know the majority of things to expect from DCFS but Ryan is just getting started, so hopefully he wont run screaming out of class one night. Cant wait to go to next weeks class so I can start getting involved in the discussions. I want to get that star at the end of the class:)
