I'm going to get my PPL after I come back from leave. I already have 23 hours. I don't have any ground school, so i'm going to be doing that and flying after I get back! Is there any websites that will teach you about different stuff you learn in ground school for free? What can I expect to do in my first solo?

Check here: https://flighttraining.aopa.org/ Lots of great stuff. If you haven't already, I'd recommend joining AOPA and getting Flight Training magazine. You can't beat it.
