and in other news...

So I have been away from the blogging world for the last couple of months because things have been crazy busy.
I'm finally finished with school, and the last thing I want to do is get on my computer.  In fact I haven't even turned it on since I finished school until now.
So here's the Reader's Digest version of the last few months.

Where I left off I was just about to take the MPRE.  That was crazy.  See this little adorable boy got a raging case of pink eye days before the test.
 Then the morning of the test I woke up with the worst case of pink eye I had ever seen.  My eye was swollen almost shut, and there was so much pressure on the eye that I spent the first few hours before the test in the ER getting medication for my eye.  Then I took the test with one eye.  That was hard.
But luckily I PASSED!

Then I went to Nebraska for Spring break.  I took a class out there.
 Pretty, no?

 Then Drake started baseball.
He's pretty good at nailing the ball!  Generally he hits it on the first or second pitch.  And his outfield dancing is to die for.  He may have even caught a ball in his hat rather than his glove.

 I did the El Tour de Mesa.
Tres fun.

Marquee Olympic Triathlon.

The Taylors were in town and we did some family pictures.
 Just look at these adorable kids.

Then finals started.
Would you like to know how to add even more stress to law school finals?  Go run Ragnar SoCal right in the middle of it.  But as much stress as it added, it was also a good brain break.  
80's Ladies and Some Dudes rocked it!  

Gwen did her first duathlon.
So cute I could die!

At the same time Drake and Ryan were camping for fathers and sons.
You know, just catching mice and killing snakes.  Fun man stuff.

Then I finished finals and also my paper that I spent months procrastinating.
Holy cow, I can't even put into words how elating it is to be finished with my SECOND YEAR OF LAW SCHOOL!!!!!!

I've celebrated by going on a crazy cleaning spree.  
My house is in a constant state of deterioration throughout the semester, so come the end of school I have major cleaning to do.

To reward myself, I did the Rio Salado Olympic tri yesterday.
My BIL Gavin did it too.
I know that nobody looks good in a swim cap.  I'm embracing my inner ET.
 It was a super fun way to kick off the summer!

So here's to summer break!!
No more pencils, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks.
