News and Vacation

News before pictures I think. I was accepted to UT's Master's of Information Science program!
I'm nervous and excited at the same time. It has been so long since I've been in school; can you forget how to study? I gotta get funds, and register for classes, and buy books, and get some speakers for the computer as the classes are all online. EEK! It was a nice birthday present though.

For the July 4th weekend, B and I took a vacation to Louisiana to visit my family. The drive went great and we listened to Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi (review to follow another day). Enjoy some pictures!

B and my nephew

He's concerned about the ball.

She wanted to bounce it on her head like B did.
Is it fair that he's better at games? i mean my nephew, not B!

B at the swamp. We saw 3 gators!

We had a great time except the trip was too short! I will be heading back for a quick trip in September and i will probably be surprised how much bigger the kids are. Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!

  1. CONGRATS!!!! I was in the University of North Texas online program, and probably need to get back to that one of these days. :)

    Good luck to you! I know you'll knock 'em dead!
