Go Knights

Last night I had the annual new physician reception for work and it was the first varsity game of the season for Southeast. Erik is in drumline this year with the giant bass drum so he gets to play a lot.

The Knights had a great first game and won 20 to 14 in overtime against the Southwest Silverhawks. I think we're all worn out today, after the excitement it was hard to get to sleep! Hopefully we can get some rest this weekend. I have lots of homework and this is Brian's weekend off in between classes. We both have a lot of commitments for work in the next few weeks so we are working in projects when we can! The next varsity game is a week from today, Friday, September 3, 2010 at Seacrest. The band will be playing the opener for this year's show and we may get some props onto the field.

Where Did the Weekend Go?

Friday night Brian caught an early flight, that got delayed, but he made it home right at dusk, which was much better than his initial flight which was supposed to land in Omaha at midnight. Saturday morning Erik got up and went to practice and Brian and I spent the day on homework. Sunday I spent the day on laundry while Brian took his final (YIPPEE) and this morning we both had to get up early for work.

It was kind of the weekend that wasn't. Saturday night I did watch Juno for the very first time. And I bawled.... a lot. More than I ever would have anticipated. If you haven't seen it, and you were a mom early, or you are currently raising a teenager, get out your Kleenex. It was surprisingly well done.

Indecent Exposure

This morning - very very early morning Brian packed up for Indianapolis. It's time for the annual CSI customer conference. It should be a really nice week!

I got up at 4:30 to let the dogs out and they didn't want to come back in. When I went out to check on them I discovered that they had cornered some kind of small rodent (I really hope our vole isn't back!) that was squeaking and squealing in horror. I convinced Ozzy to come in but I had to drag Cache up the stairs and into the house. In my pajamas!!! Thank goodness it was 4:30 in the morning and I think I only saw one car driving past. Hopefully their attention was on the road! Cross your fingers that we don't have a repeat this afternoon!

Strike a Pose

Today is picture day for Erik. This morning they will take the group football picture for the 2010 programs, then he'll have 2 hours of football practice, a band picture for his band button and band practice.

Today is also the band picnic and Brian and I have been busy making arrangements to feed 150 teenagers. They'll be dining on pizza, cookies, soda and bottled water. Now we're just keeping our fingers crossed. After a week with 105-115 degree heat indexes there is a threat of rain. Tomorrow we'll spend the day catching up on homework and laundry and Erik has another 8-10 hours of practicing. Hopefully next week will bring us some much needed cooler temperatures.

A Significant Loss

As many of you already know Christi's dad took a turn for the worse in July and elected to be removed from life support. He passed away on Wednesday, July 28, 2010 around 6:30 pm central standard time. While it was sad, his body was rapidly giving up on him, and we know that he is in a far better place. Brian and Christi were able to go down and say goodbye and will be having a private prayer service with their minister in Lincoln.

The family has elected to not place an obituary in the Gainesville Sun newspaper, I will update further if an obituary is run in another community.
