Missouri Howdy

(This is a story Ryan told me last night, sorry about the swearing)

Ryan was sitting on campus studying when one of his professors walked by. Ryan stopped him and said hi and how are you. The professor responding and they had some small talk. At the end of the conversation, the professor said, "Now that you live in Missouri, you need to talk like it. Here we don't ask how are you doing we say 'How the hell are ya' and you don't say fine you say 'Doin dam good'!"

We are slowly learning the Missouri way of life!!

BYU vs Tulane

Some of the students that go to AT Still reserved the rec room on campus. We were able to watch the BYU vs Oklahoma game there as well! There are quite a few people that attended BYU.

This has been quite and exciting season so far.... Ryan is really going to miss being at the games and cheering for the cougars!

Remembering 9/11

Ryan and I were talking about how 9/11 will be the highlight of our generation; like how our parents remember where they were when JFK was shot or how our grandparents talk about Pearl Harbor. So we thought we would share what we were doing that morning....

Ryan was in the shower getting ready for school listening to Z103 in Idaho Falls, Id and heard them talking about how the first tower was hit. By the time he got out of the shower and turned on the TV, the second building had been hit as well.

I was in my kitchen getting lunch or breakfast ready when my dad told us to come into the living room and watch the news. I sat there with some of family and watched the two towers get hit and collapse. My dad told us that he didn't care that we were going to be late to school. When we finally arrived at school, every class room was watching the news and playing those terrible scenes over and over again.

My family and I went to New York when we were little and it was weird to look at the pictures and realize that those buildings were gone and so many things were about to change. We are so thankful to live in a country with all the freedoms that we have! GOD BLESS AMERICA

Rainy Day

The other day it was starting to rain. So I ran up stairs to close our door to the balcony when I saw this cute mama bird sitting on the railing watching her two baby birds playing in the tree!!

First Day of School

Ryan finally started his first day of school after long boring days of orientation. That morning I did the wifely duty of making him breakfast, German Pancakes, and helping him pack his bag for the first day of school!

Poor Ryan...

Bowling Night

Saturday we decided to try out some of Kirksville's hot spots! We went to Leisure World for some bowling... We knew we were in for a treat when we got there and they didn't take credit/debit CASH ONLY. (learning slowly that there are several places like that) Ryan getting ready to bowl.

We went with a few other couples that we know from school and church! It was a lot of fun for such a run down place :)
