The Latest

So we have been pretty busy, but not with anything too exciting! After our last post, we were able to go the Mile High Music Festival (day 2), which was AMAZING! We really wanted to see One Republic, but we got stuck in traffic and barely caught the end of their last song. Then we saw Flogging Molly, which was really fun. Yay Irish. Then we saw a local Denver band, the Flobots. They were pretty fun, but way too political for me. Especially since their views were kind of opposite of mine! Then we saw John Mayer (awesome!) and Dave Matthews Band. I've seen Dave Matthews Band 8 times now, and this was by far the best. Absolutely amazing.

Since then, we've just been keeping busy! I've been working hard at work and in school. The CU kids come next week for Orientation, so I'm busy planning orientation and advising the incoming students. Kevin has had band camp for the past few weeks. He will actually have a marching band at Alameda this year, so that's exciting! He's also helping out with Dakota Ridge's band. His first day with students is tomorrow.

Yesterday, I went out to Boulder Reservoir to watch my cousin, Todd, compete in a half Iron Man triathlon. I had hoped it would give me some motivation to work out more, but I think it just made me tired. Swim 1.2 miles, bike 56 miles, run 13.1 miles? YIKES! It was really fun to watch him though. Very impressive. After that, Todd and Liz had everyone over to their house for a BBQ. They had a blow-up water slide, which was pretty much the coolest thing I have ever seen. Those kids were having a blast.

We are really enjoying watching the Olympics! I love the swimming events. Especially because we have an HDTV now and can watch it in HD. Did you SEE the Men's 4x100m free relay last night? That was an amazing race! GO USA!!!!
