[11-in-2011] Summer Wrap-Up

As usual, summer was fast and furious. Matt spent it studying and working a few hours a week at UNT. I tried my best to keep busy with lots of 2x2 reading and yoga activities. Duncan didn't even try to be productive, but he did do a good job of sleeping lots and looking cute.

Since we didn't take a big trip we did our best to enjoy lots of daytrips in DFW: the Bishop Arts District, Shakespeare in the Park for As You Like It (ye olde fun), the Dallas Arboretum, downtown McKinney, frequenting our favorite haunts on the Denton square (Greenhouse, Love Shack, Recycled Books), plus polo, cookouts, bike rides, and movie-watching.
So far the fall is off to a fun start too. Junior League is up and running and has been a blast, yoga teacher training is halfway done, and I'm enjoying a smooth start to my second year at the new library. Matt is teaching two classes at UNT, two classes at Tarrant County College, two online classes at Grayson County College plus studying for comps and working at the UNT History Help Center. Yes, he's counting down to the spring semester already. I'm counting down to cooler weather!
