To admit or be admitted into a group, especially a college or university.

Monday (pron. IPA: /ˈmʌndeɪ, ˈmʌndi/) is the day of the week between Sunday and Tuesday. Origins of the name The name of the day's origins revolve mostly around the moon, which in turn gets its name from Mani (Old English Mona), the Germanic moon god. Similarly, the names in Latin-based languages such as the Italianname (Lunedì), the French name (lundi), the Spanish name (lunes), and the Romanian name (Luni) come from the Latin name for moon, luna. The Russian word, eschewing pagan names, is понедельник (poniediélnik), meaning "after Sunday." In most of the Indian Languages, the word for Monday is Somvar, with Soma being the Sanskrit name for the moon. The Japanese word for Monday is getsuyōbi (月曜日) which means day of the moon.

Bright and early Monday Morning, I will accompany Gavin at AHC while he enrolls in an art class. Then I will drive him across the (very small) campus to the Testing Building where he will take his College Placement Test......yes, for a art class.

I had Gavin read up on the START test. Turns out, you can fail, get a Big Fat 0 and they still admit you. The test is just to help them give you placement advise. I'm assuming you don't need a high score in math and English for an art class.

I think math should be capitalized. English is capitalized; math should get the same respect.

I think after G & finish his ACH enrollment & testing, we should all 4 go to the beach with boffer swords. I'll check Gudalupe's weather forecast for tomorrow. If it's too chilly we'll go to Oso Flaco.Maybe the whale carcass will still be there.

Gavin is leaving on a jet plane Tuesday morning. He is visiting grandparents in Omaha, Nebraska. His aunt, uncle, and some of his cousins live there, too.

Tuesday I will drive K up to SLO for one of his Volunteer Cooking Class Helper gigs.

I think by Tuesday or Wednesday I might be ready to start compiling ideas and plans for school.
