Katie and I realized the other day that we haven't done anything to this blog since October. And, well, a lot has happened since. Just a brief rundown:

Katie got a job with KU out of Kansas City, KS and started the second week in October (that was the exciting news from the Oct. 1 post).

My brother, Gustavo, married Thanksgiving weekend.

I completed my first semester in grad school with a whopping 3.77 GPA (thank you to 2 A's, a B+ and a rock solid paper I wrote).

We have made many great friends in Lawrence, and continue to meet tons of interesting people here in the Sunflower State.

The upcoming year looks to be very promising for us. 2008 was an outstanding year as our lives changed dramatically as we started our life together and embarked on new adventures.

We have vowed to dedicate more time to this project. We have been inspired, and look forward to detailing our adventures in '09.

We will be back within the week to update you all on our fabulous time in the Sunflower State.

We have tons of pictures to share with you. Stories to tell.

In the mean time, please bear with us! We have some exciting news, too!!!

Love you all,

Katie and Luis

A Look Back

Since we've been is a quick rundown of some of our events that we have not mentioned here until now:

+ACD/SHD retreat

+Paula Dean in the Kitchen: The Schol Hall staff cooked a fabulous dinner for the rest of the campus staffs. Here are the fun pictures from the event!

+Towards the end of training, there was a dress up event at dinner. Luis went as Duff from Ace of Cakes!

+There was also a huge dance party outside Crawford...I was sick and couldn't make it, but thanks to Luis' love of picture taking, I can now relive the event through these photos!

+Once the RAs/Desk Staff/Proctors/Food Board Managers moved in, the exec members for the Skol Halls soon followed. We went with the Wild Watkins Women to create tiles to help decorate the hall. Luis made the T and I made an A! It was a lot of fun! I think we will have to travel back there to make some more goodies sometime!

+Then move in snuck up on us! In Schol Hall land there is something that happens at the beginning of the year, the Scholarship Hall Olympics! Each hall competes in a variety of events, everything from baking to watermelon eating and basketball to ultimate frisbee. It was great experience and Luis and I took every moment we could to cheer on the lady llamas and bfeld aardvarks!

+During the opening week, there were two rockin' dances. Rock a Hawk and the fountain dance were really fun! Luis showed off his dance moves and we got to hang out with awesome people!

We have more pics to check back soon for a new update!!

Traditions Night

Katie and I are running a bit behind schedule trying to update our blog as much as we can. Ideally, we would like to have a daily post, but you know, it's hard! We really don't know how people on the Web can be so dedicated and have enough time to do this! I guess they don't have jobs or something.

Anyway! We decided to update you all on Traditions Night which was held on Monday night August 18 at Memorial Stadium. It was the first event for new Jayhawks to learn the traditions of the student body. But, something... no wait... someone caught my attention more than that guy-->.

Little known fact about me is that I LOVE MASCOTS. I mean I am absolutely fascinated by the lovable furry things.
Illinois had the Chief, but he wasn't really a "mascot" per se (some will disagree). High school, well that didn't really count for either of us. So naturally, I am glad that KU has Big Jay and Baby Jay. So much so that I decided to take more pictures of them than any other event during Traditions Night!

Some other stuff happened too, but I was way too distracted!

Louie's First Day of School

Today was the first day of class here at KU. Louie was sooo excited! He loved his new book bag! We tried to take a picture of ourselves, but I cut Jay out! Luis got angry, so I tried again! Right after he left, someone else decided to join me! Check back for more adventures!
