I would like to say that the lack of posts is due to us being busy but I think the reality is that I have just been lazy. However, I am currently working 50 hours a week and it is a bit time consuming. I am liking both jobs and I am very thankful for both but I would love more time with Brett and Petey. Thankfully Brett is really busy as well. However, he is getting to spend some great time with Petey during lunches and study sessions! Ok, so maybe we are busy...

Speaking of Petey, we have been trying to think of a way to take him to the park with us and after looking at REI for bike trailers and baskets I decided I would try something else....

Thankfully he just sat there while we rode!

Arriving at the park!

Enjoying the Denver SUN!!!

So life lately has been school, work, homework, church, a quick trip to Vegas for Brett and walks with Petster! We have been busy but it is definitely paying off. Brett got an A in his first nursing school class and he starts another new class on Monday! I started a new job at Jones International University where I am working in the registrar and admissions office determining if students should be admitted to our school and if they have all the required grades, transfer credits and meet admission requirements. It is along the lines of education so I do actually enjoy it a lot! I am still applying for teaching jobs and just hoping they call me someday and say they want me.

Here are some pictures from lately!

Making study group snacks for Brett and his classmates!

We are back in the grind after the long weekend off... not. Brett studied all weekend and I worked. However Elizabeth, my friend from home, was in town so I got to see her Saturday night. While I was enjoying Mexican food with her Brett was getting to know his school partners a little better at a bbq Saturday night. While it was sad to spend a free night doing different things I guess sacrifices have to be made. However, we did get to spend the morning together and we treated ourselves to the BodyWorks exhibit. It was fascinating and super interesting. Now we are both back to working and studying like crazy, which is good because it keeps us busy. Thankfully we still spend a lot of time together because Brett is usually studying at home. He may be in another room but at least I can go in a say hi every five minutes :)

Here are some pictures of our most recent happenings here in Denver!
