For a little bit of cheering up and fun, Nikki + Amanda! Love the look on Nikki’s face.
Thoughts, ideas, creative musings, observations, and nuances.
Sleeping Nikki on Flickr.
It’s Nikki’s birthday today (roughly - Amanda and I had to estimate it).
I’m a dog person, what can I say. (I promise not to go overboard with a thousand pictures of her. I think this one will suffice.)
Amanda and Nikki Tussling on Flickr.
Amanda and Nikki having a moment of fun at the Chaparral Dog Park.
(Later we’d find out that Nikki would pick up a GI parasite from being at the dog park, but in the moment this was fun.)
Break in the Action on Flickr.
Amanda and the girls watching Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. I took a moment to interrupt the movie to snap a quick picture.
Just Walking Around the Grand Canyon on Flickr.
This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite moments of Christmas 2012.
Resting with the Kids on Flickr.
Since I haven’t posted a picture in awhile, and because it’s my day off and I wanted to post a picture that captured the essence of my day off, I present the kids sleeping on top of me, taken by Amanda (in 2011).
If you’ve ever been curious about what it’s like to watch a PhD student study, I present to you the stages of Amanda’s typical study habits:
1. Study With a Buddy
2. Have Your Study Buddy Proofread Your Work
3. Take in Your Study Buddy’s Critique
And this is how you become a PhD!
