Back to School… again!August 24th, 2010
Yes, it’s true. I finished Grad school and I’m still going back to school. But this time, it’s faculty orientation! It’s been fun to meet so many great people at the university and get a sense of all the opportunities that are going to present themselves throughout the semester.
In the days leading up to my orientation, my parents made a visit and had the chance to check out our new place. They are great with (and sometimes a little obsessive about) creating a beautiful looking yard, so we all got to work and cleaned up the landscaping. Now it looks amazing! Check out all the brush we ended up with:
We also went into Sioux Falls and checked out… what else? The Sioux Falls!
Their visit wouldn’t be complete without a tour of the beautiful campus, which is less than half of a mile from our home! We are so lucky to have gotten such a great location.
There is a lot of excitement (and some stress) that comes with a new position like this, and I am really looking forward to getting classes under way and settling into a bit of a routine again. As the fall season approaches, Cassie and I plan on getting some house projects started as we try to get involved in the arts within the community. For now, so long from the house.
All of these fantastic pictures in this post were taken by my parents!
