It's Official!

It's official. Today I registered for my last class in the HESA program. I'll be finishing up on August 9 of this year instead of December. Hooray! I'll be doing official graduation/hooding exercises in May since my program only "hoods" once a year. I'll post some pictures then.

News Brief

Ok, I still don't have time to write a long post - I've got 3, count 'em, 3 papers due Thursday - but I do want to update you on what's been happening.

1) This month Nick's spent a week at Langley AFB and 2 weeks at a base in California (more on that will follow)

2) I got to visit Texas for Lauren't Waco shower at the Brophys house. Here's a pic:

I had a blast hanging out with my family (thanks Mom and Dad!) and also a big thanks to Bec who came in for the weekend. We absolutely don't get to hang out enough, but I loved the time we did get to spend together!!!

3) I also got to be in Texas for Father's Day, and got to have brunch at Ridgewood with my dad and grandad. Nick and I gave Dad a bottle of Hall Cabernet Sauvignon - couldn't pass it up! I hope you've already enjoyed that bottle, but if you haven't do it soon!

4) OK, so here's the thing with Nick going to California. He was supposed to leave on Sunday at 6am. He left on Tuesday at 6 am. A combination of rolled flights, canceled flights, delayed flights, and engine trouble added up to a total of 7 trips to the airport on my part and Nick making the final trip in a cab. When he finally got to California, two whole days late, his suitcase did not follow. It did not follow on Wednesday, or on Thursday. In fact, we'd started claims proceedings for a lost suitcase when the suitcase finally arrived in California the next Wednesday, mysteriously full of leaves. Hmm. At least he got his clothes back.

5) My friend and supervisor Anna had her baby boy! Check him out on her blog: I met him Thursday and he is too precious for words!

6) Last night Nick started playing on a soccer team. It doesn't seem to matter to him that it's in the Latino Amarillo league, nor should it. However, it was a bit hard for him to take directions from his coach in Spanish. We'll have to work on that since he intends to play out the rest of the season with the team at his coach, Angel's, invitation. Don't even get me started on how he found the team. It was pure Nick.

So now you're pretty much caught up. Hope you're all having a good weekend!

I'm Coming Back Soon...I Promise!

I know it's been two and a half weeks since my last post. I'm sorry! I work 7am-5pm MWF and 7am-8pm (including class) on T Th, and when I'm not at work/in class I'm reading or writing for class. I'm hoping to get some time this weekend to catch up, but until then...I loved seeing so many of you in Waco. It felt so good to be home for a bit!

Also, on a sidenote, please pray that United Airlines will find Nick's suitcase. He's been in California for a full week now, without clothes, because they have lost his baggage. I'll give you the whole story when I have time. I wish everyone a wonderful week!
