How are you preparing?

I liked Andrew’s comment on Friday so much, I decided to steal adapt it for a post.

What are you doing to prepare for the school year?

I’ll go first third. Like many InterVarsity staff, I’m spending the end of summer working on my annual plans, which includes reviewing our ESN survey to see what ESN members want in the coming year. I just returned from Toah Nipi in NH from a planning meeting with our Faculty Ministry Leadership Team; many staff are meeting with their regional and local teams. Also like many InterVarsity staff, my work is supported by financial partners, so I am contacting my current supporters to thank them and sharing ESN’s mission and vision with potential new supporters. This morning, I picked up James Lang’s well-reviewed book, Life on the Tenure Track for some insight and ideas – one of many books on my “to read” shelf. Finally, since my work involves regular travel and unusual hours, I’m getting in some fun activities with my wife and 3 kids before the rush of the school year starts – trips to the pool, extra long games of dominoes and Solo (my 5-year-old’s current favorite games), that sort of thing.

So, that’s me. What are you doing?
