Greetings to All,
It has been a full month since finishing the summer mini-term, and I have been enjoying every moment. Having the remainder of the summer to rest up and take a true break has been wonderful. I have had a fantastic time with family.
My son has really enjoyed it as well, as we have been able to enjoy the city of Memphis and all of the surrounding areas. We recently went skating and bowling a few days ago, and before that his grandfather took him to enjoy some putt-putt golf. At 3 years old, he’s definitely having the time of his life. We also spent our time in Memphis celebrating the 4th of July. The church we attend had their own fireworks show, and afterwards we ate some good old BBQ that I cooked on the grill my wife just bought me.
A few weeks ago we went on a trip to Ohio for a family reunion. I don’t get to go to Ohio as much as I would like, so making my yearly trip up north was very refreshing in that I was able to visit a few of my elder relatives. We also went to Georgia for another family reunion, where we spent the weekend in the Appalachian Mountains in a cabin enjoying family, fishing, and great food. I attached one of the pictures we took below, which includes from left to right: My grandfather, Son, Mother, and Wife.

I’m sure my wife is tired of seeing me at home enjoying the air condition every day, but I keep telling her this is my last summer off for the rest of my life, so I’m taking advantage of it. Time is winding down until school starts, so I’m sure I’ll get a little studying done as well. Dr. Ensor has warned us with pharmacology, so I’ll take his word for it.
Before I end, I’d just like to take a moment to welcome the new incoming class. I know a lot of them are probably getting nervous in this journey they are about to embark in, but fear not because I was in the same boat last summer, and now I’m entering my second year. It is possible. Good luck to you all and see you at the end of the month during orientation.
Until Next Time… Later ~
