Yes, yes I know for all you faithful bloggers it has been awhile for me. Sorry, it has been so busy here. First I fell down the stairs a(and I swear broke my little toes), then I got a flat tire on the way to work (way fun at 6 in the morning) and now my family is here. Life is good , but definitely keeping us busy. It is good to see family. My dear friend Melissa got me the coolest thing for Christmas, my very own stamp, it is awesome. Thank you thank you, now when I write cards to people they will have our stamp on them . It will aid in my creativity with cards. hehe. Well I best be going, everythign here is going well and Thaddeus is excited to be done with his first semester. Hope everyone has a great Christmas. God Bless,

1 Down 3 To Go

Well, the first final is behind me and I figured I should take a slight reprieve from studying and post my first blog message. I am really burned out on studying and can't wait until this semester is completely finished. It is nice not to have any classes and not to have to try to fill my brain with new material but the studying for the finals is still pretty intense. I am posting a picture with this message which is of my friend Garret studying at a table in one of the UMN law school study areas. Both of us were finishing up some of our last assignments for Contracts and Torts and as you can see, all of our stuff is spread out all over the place. Anyway, I think that I did fairly well on the CivPro exam that I took yesterday. Nothing caught me by suprise so I am sure that I passed the class but I am not sure what kind of grade I will get. I would be happy with a "B". I will try to keep everyone updated on the tortures of law school. Until then, adios amigos.
P.S. I included a picture of Ashley at the lawschool.
