Some interesting CUW news....

So two of my professors Dr. Burkee and Dr. Walz (both in the social studies/history field) are going to be running for congress... against each other. You should read this article. If you live in WI and can vote for one of them please do. I respect both of them and really I don't know who I'd vote for. I guess we'd just have to wait and see what they have to say. I am looking forward to following that.

Ch ch changes....correction

Well I was using Photosite for my pictures. I really liked the albums and all the pretty effects and stuff I could do with it. I really enjoyed using it. But I learned today that they are closing their site. I've decided to cut my losses and all the time I spent creating photo albums with music and stuff...I AM switching to flickr and I will be posting more pictures there. I'm really bummed out. It won't be as pretty and as many albums. (Flickr only allows 3 free albums to non paying customers. I may pay to have more later) I am going to update the link as soon as I post this blog.

On a different note...HOLY COW!!!! 25 days till we move. I am so not ready....I'd better get packing.

One month and counting

Well the Buchholz's had a pretty good July 4th and week. A good friend of ours from CUW came to the booming metropolis of Geneseo for a visit. Being a crazy group of kids we went to Chicago on July 3rd for the big fireworks. That was a lot of fun! We hit up some other sites in the city, Michigan Ave, Millennium Park to see the infamous Bean, and then down to the Taste of Chicago where pretty much everyone and their uncle came to the city for. And ended the night with some fireworks. Good times had by all. We cooked out on the 4th and watched fireworks on TV (apparently in the Quad Cities area people do fireworks on the 3rd or on the Friday after. Not sure why) and then watched some movies we rented. It was a great time. And now back to the grindstone for a few weeks before we move. I'm freaked out a bit about the move. I have so much to do and so little time. We move in about a month. I am sure I can get it all done by then! We'll see... Here are some pictures from the week!

WhoooHooo Fireworks!!!
