Optometry School!

Brandon has offically started optometry school today. He went to orientation the last few days of the week last week. The school had some fun activities to start off the school year.

On Thursday last week we went to the Memphis Redbirds game. Surprisngly, the kids did pretty well. We lasted until the sixth inning of a game that started at 7:00 (the twins' bedtime). Hyrum was pretty fascinated with it for a few mintues, but he became more interested in the giant red bird mascot. Before we left the game, we took him to go see the mascot. You could tell he wanted to see the bird, but definetly wanted to keep a safe distance. Hyrum also had a fun time going down the huge blow-up slide before we left the game. It was fun to meet a whole little group of first year LDS students and their wives. A couple of them even had a kid or two so that will be fun to set-up some play groups.

Brandon and I also were able to go to a picnic last Saturday with the optometry students. Brandon's parents were intown so it was nice to be able to have a date of some sort. It was also nice to get to know some other students Brandon will be going to school with better.
We are excited for this new adventure. Below is a picture of Brandon on the first day of orienation.

I love and miss the first day of school! Isn't it weird to not have to go anymore? I'm still not used to it and I'm on round 3!
