Back to School...

I am so sad to see summer end, but at the same time so excited to be back at school. I think part of the reason why I am so happy about it is because that means that fall is just around the corner. Today was my first day back at school and I am not going to lie, it felt good being back on campus. I really haven't had actual school since last fall. While I was in London, school was kind of a joke. It's nice to have a little more organization and an actual syllabus to go off of. I had two classes today, one three hours long and the other an hour and a half, long day I know, but I enjoyed both of them. This past week it has been hard to say bye to summer. I don't like knowing that I can't wear flip flops for too much longer, or knowing my days of going to the pool or going boating are limited. I have had a really good low key summer, which I am so grateful for. Here are some pics of the tale end of summer.

Waiting for the Wetzels to come boating with us.

Cute Erin and I boating at Echo. We need to do this again Peach!

Action shot at Dotties: Me wearing my shirt/dress from India, not sure what's going on. Richie concentrating on his next shot and smelling his golf club. My mom just smiling away as usual.

Meeting my London girls at the London Market on 7th!

2008 Beijing Olympics

I don't know what it is about the Olympics this summer but I have loved watching them. I find it so fascinating no matter what I am watching. It has probably been a good thing for me because it has motivated me to get in shape. My favorite thing to watch is swimming. How amazing is Michael Phelps? I read an article on him and in the interview they asked him where he gets all of his strength and energy. He said that he eats on average 12,000 calories a day, which provides more than enough calories to burn. Can you believe that? Then he went on to add that he has trouble keeping weight on. I guess when you are as talented as he is you could eat whatever you wanted and not feel guilty. I also love watching girls gymnastics. It was so sweet to see Nastia Liukin win the gold medal, and Shawn Johnson taking the silver. Can you imagine winning an Olympic medal at their age? I am going to be so sad when the Olympics are over and can't wait to watch the winter olympics in Canada in a couple of years!

A little more..

We were so lucky to have our grandparents there with us. What would we do with out J-Dub and Carol?
