A Little Breather

I wish I could describe how great I feel right now. Last night I presented my last final project and this semester is officially O-V-E-R. It's so great. After I got home from class it was kind of surreal, Eric took me out to dinner to celebrate and there is no greater feeling than be able to sit and not have a pit in my stomach because I really should be doing a million other things and how far back my sitting was going to set me. I hate that feeling. And sadly it's a feeling that has seemed permanent this summer. Stupid.
The only downer on my recently acquired freedom is that Eric started his fall semester on Monday and I finished my summer semester on Tuesday...Boo.
On a lighter note, I don't think I've posted anything about what we've done with the remainder of our summer but here's what we've been up to...

Carol and Jeff watched the boys while Pete and Ali were in Germany and I'm not sure who had more fun...

                                              Somehow it always turns into a wrestling match.
We also had the annual Theurer trip to Newport! This is honestly one of my favorite places, I get excited for this trip all year long. Of course, genius me forgot to bring the charger for our camera. I'm so mad! But here are my two favs from the first day.
 We literally drove home from California with Eric's parents all day, picked up our car from their house and drove straight to Bear Lake. Another one of my favorite places on earth! Pretty sure we counted that we drove through 6 states that day and it was so great.
A few of my cousins were actually able to make it up to chill with us too and we totally loved it!

Thanks to everyone for putting up with me doing homework on vacation! I know it was probably frustrating but sometimes a girl's just gotta do what she's gotta do. Also, thanks to everyone for dealing with me. I've had way too many late nights of homework and I'm pretty sure I'd turned into a crazy person. It's great to be back!
