it's hot again

Well kids, guess that hint of fall is over. It was in the 90's again yesterday here in Nashvegas. Fall schedule is beginning though with lots of busy-ness and activity. Don has started cross country season with his team camp this weekend at his parent's cabin in Dale Hollow, TN. I guess they do alot of running around in the hills while they're there. Have fun Don!

School starts on Monday. I'm so glad to not have night classes and am glad to be in my very last year at Watkins. What a wonderful school though. Please check out the website. I will be doing updates for it this semester as I am the "web" work study. In addition to that, 3 classes and working at echo, I will try to be true to my knitting passion this fall. Cooler weather is the best time to start knitting, so if you don't know how, PLEASE LEARN! It's fun and rewarding. Contact me for good info on how to learn, what to knit, etc.

Last thing...August is family month in Nashville. Christy, Dad, Mamma, and Elliot came to visit last weekend. Jon and his band will be through here Sunday and then Mom and John are getting here Thursday for a long weekend. I welcome anyone who'd like to visit this fine city of ours. Good luck to everyone as the fall begins. It's a busy time of year, but my favorite!

The end of an era

Well, here I am, finished with my summer class and the era known as "the year of the night class." I finally have no more night classes until the spring...only one then, once a week. Many of you have not been involved in my era of night classes, but let me tell you all you need to know...I'm so glad to be through with that craziness!

Exciting things are happening here in Nashvegas. I got offered a part-time job at echomusic, the place I have been interning this summer. I will be helping David, our savvy web designer, in the web design world, helping clients find themselves on the world wide web. It's very exciting. I am finally saying "hasta la vista" to the banking world. I can't say I'm too disappointed, but I am very thankful to have had such a great job to get me through many years of school. Cheers to all those in the banking world, especially my tellers, yo.

I can't believe it's already August. This is family month for me here in Nashville. Dad and Christy are swinging by McCrory and bringing Mamma into town in a couple of weeks. Then, Mom and John will be visiting this fine establishment on Aug. 26th. Fun times. Everyone who knows him, congratulate Jon on his newest venture. He will be playing guitar for a band called "The New Ending." He just moved home from St. Louis on Friday and is excited to persue music again for a while. Well, hope to hear from many of you soon. Love you all and let me know what you're up to. Props to Jason for pointing me in the right direction with adding links to the site. Later gators...
