Thank you for your patience reading my blog while I've been in school. I know not much has been happening on it. The good news is: 6 weeks of classes are done. I am not quite finished with school though because I am still in the process of writing the second paper. In a few days I will be done after I send it electronically to my professor. Then I will be free until the end of August whenI start again. I really enjoyed my classes. I met a lot of wonderful people and will miss seeing them regularly.
This picture doesn't have much to do with grad school, but I thought it was a pretty good representation of keeping my head above water! (even though it is really a picture of Audra)

This afternoon, I saw an Amish buggy coming up our street. I've only seen that one other time in the 8 years we have lived here. Some usually come into town on Saturdays for the farmer's market...but on a Sunday? And on our street? There was a man and a woman. Two little Amish girls in the cart and two boys about 10 or 11 years of age on bicycles. They went slowly by and waved and smiled at us. I waved and smiled back. During the entire thing, my camera was just an arm's length away. I could have gotten a nice shot of all of their smiling faces...but I just couldn't do it. I can't treat them like they are part of an odd exhibit. Allen was sitting next to me. We finally felt comfortable with Allen taking this shot of them from the back after they had passed.

I'm sorry that I haven't written. I am under the gun here with 2 weeks of grad classes left for this summer session. I have to submit a paper that is almost finished, interview a librarian, write a second paper, and finish designing an html webpage.
I'm really loving it so far. I feel very confident that I am studying the right thing and heading in the right direction. Everyone I have met in my classes is really nice. Since we are all new students, we have become a pretty tight knit group. After dinner yesterday, about 10 of us walked down to these impressive marble columns located on campus. These pilars are from an old building that was taken down in the city of Buffalo. One girl did have a camera and we stood around and posed for pics. (From l-r in this picture: Bridget, Kaitlyn, Josh, Johanna, Jeremy, Libby, Lena, me) It is scary how old I look here!
