Yeah summer!

Well, I know I've been a bit absent, but I'm back! And so excited to have a lovely summer break to regroup. I really appreciate all the happy encouragement from everyone for finishing the year off strong. I'm excited to move forward into summer now! Even though summer will smell like aweful formaldehyde.

I'm TAing the anatomy classes for the physical therapy and physician's assistant courses at CU. I'm really excited about it, though you never truly get used to the smell. Anatomy lab always gives the greatest stories. I'm looking forward to sharing them with you. Already I've been laughing. The professor for the class looks exactly like Edna from the Incredibles. She must be 4'9 or so. And she cracks me up like no one's business. She won't let the students play any music, and won't let us spray Febreze in our office because she says that it triggers her asthma. So, needless to say, it should be an interesting summer.

But it's not a huge amount of hours a week, so I'm mostly looking forward to all the great stuff I can do in my free time. There will be many walks and runs with the big guy and the house will finally stay really clean. But I also want to make a list of the things I want to do before school starts again. I might not get another chance like this. So, here's the start of the Summer List:

1. Go "revisit" the breweries in Fort Collins. There is supposedly a beer bus tour in colorado, and I am going to figure it out. Who's coming with me??!

2. Run the Rocks. Red Rocks amphitheatre is gorgeous and I've been dying to try to run up their crazy stairs. It'll probably nearly kill me, but I can't wait to try.

3. Make at least 3 visits to Golden to visit the two great breweries and the new winery (did you even know that existed, I didn't). And of course run the creek a bunch.

4. Write some letters to my grandparents. I'm the bad one.

5. Get cozy with First Aid (I can't slack the whole summer).

6. Try to visit one farmer's market a week. I love those things!

Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated. It should be a really great summer and I'm really looking forward to it. I hope it brings as much excitement to you all as it does to me!
