Summer News

Lesson of the day: it never hurts to ask. UT rules say you can only take 12 credits in the summer session, but Rachel needed 15 to graduate, hence she was preparing to take one lonely class in the fall semester. The other week, Rachel asked her UT advisor if she could add a summer class even though it is against policy. The advisor took a look at Rachel's incredible grades and said that it was okay, but admonished, "You will be very busy!" In conclusion: we just saved ourselves $3000!

Rachel will graduate from UT on August 15. Rob will begin school at Rice on August 8. Enjoy your summer vacations friends! We spend our weekends studying... though we did just discover a $1 DVD rental machine in the grocery store. That keeps us pretty occupied. After two years in the Peace Corps, there were many movies we had on our "movies to watch" list.

Quick weather note: After an unseasonably mild spring, summer has finally arrived. It's around 100 degrees these days. I am SO allergic to Texas! It's pretty funny, and all you can do is suck it up (literally) and keep downing the Benadryl.
