Lets go Rockies!!!

Tonight Park Hill United Methodist Church sang The Star Spangled Banner at the Colorado Rockies baseball game. Its the first game on a 9-game home trip and we are proud to have them back. Even more proud to watch our Mom sing in front of the die-hard fans who game to cheer the Rock on in a drizzly cold game. Sofia even got a new hat out of the deal. The camera died while taking these so this is all we got. These shots were over an hour before the game, and more fans did show up. Sofia even had a hug purple sucker (huge to her but just a tootsie-pop) that kept getting caught in the purple tastles. I think I washed it off in the drinking fountain 15 times. The rain and a tired girl both won and we left in the 4th. After all it is a school night...

Reintroduction

HI. Let me re-introduce myself. I'm Meghan.


I feel like it's been FOREVER since I have actually written on our blog! So sad! I love writing here about our wild and crazy lives. It's funny how life just kind of takes over sometimes, isn't it?

Needless to say, I'm back. Shall we catch up?

I have officially finished my first term as a PhD candidate at Walden University and, after taking a short break, have begun a new term. It actually began on Tuesday (Happy Birthday to me!) and I got slammed with homework immediately. This quarter I am taking my first of 3 research courses, a class on learning theory and educational technology, writing my first learning agreement (prep work for a year-long research project) and attending my first 4 day residency in Seattle. I just got tired writing that! It will be a busy 12 weeks, but really exciting too. I love the work that I am doing and it goes hand-in-hand with what I do with students and teachers with my job. It's all very fulfilling. :)

Speaking of work: We are entering our 4th week back at school with students. This was the first year that it felt like I just blinked and summer was gone. The kids are great this year and I am really looking forward to heading up student government again. Assembly and dance theme ideas anyone? Anyone?

Sofia is hilArious lately. She has developed such a personality...and knows it. She woke up in the middle of the night recently and stated, "My nose burped, Mommy!" Okay then!

She loves going to daycare and playing with her two friends Wyatt and Ella. The three of them are so cute with one another. Then, the entire way home each day she talks about how she will get to see Haley when we get home. Seriously. This kid has got it good: plays all day and all night. I think I would like to be 2 again. Sofia has also become quite the little singer! I bought her a $2 voice amplifier that looks like the little microphone that Annie, a character from the Little Einsteins sings into and she WILL NOT PUT IT DOWN. Ever. This video is hilarious.

Chris has been working up a storm in Greeley. Though the drive is certainly no fun (1.5 hrs each way) he continues to get great feedback from the store managers of King Soopers and his company about the project. He has taken on his role of Superintendent over the last year so well. I am SO proud of him. :)

Chris and I got to escape for a night up to Vail this weekend for my friend's wedding reception (pic at top). Our neighbors came and stayed with Sofia for the night. Coolest friends EVER! We rented a ginormous condo in East Vail with 7 other friends had a fantastic time.

(After the reception back at the condo.)

I turned 29 last Tuesday. I feel old. I think I developed arthritis over night. Really.

That's all for now. I will try and do a much better job posting.
xoxo
