The last two weeks I have had some field trips through the University. Time has really slipped away from me this summer. It has slipped away so fast I didn't realize it had been a month and a half since my last post. At this point I'm not sure who even still checks in to see the progress. Rightfully so. haha. I have been working pretty much all summer and had forgotten to get out and get some shots. These pictures came from a field trip to the Chalk beds in Western Kansas. The end of our trip took us to Castle Rock which is just south of Quinter. Just getting out and learning some new knowledge about nature and geology really open my mind again. I was very grateful for that. Spending time outdoors allows your soul to be rejunvinated and will feed it as well. Nature recharges my batteries and helps me regain my level of equilibrium in life.

Even being at the lake with friends this summer a couple of times has helped. No matter how long or short the trip was it recharged me. I can't believe that summer is almost over already. I will be gone for a month before classes start so my summer is really comming to a close. Unfortunately it has been so fast. It has been very refreshing how everything has gone. I have to say this has been one of my best summers in quite a long time. Busy and hectic at times but just letting go and letting things happen the way they are suppose to happen has really helped with my equilibrium as well. I know that next semester will be extremely busy. I have decided to apply for a full-time position at work and apply for the paramedic course through work. I have really come to love my job now and look forward to gaining more knowledge about the field. In all reality this may end up biting me in the ass and being much more than I can handle and try to maintain normalcy. Time will tell. (That has become a quote that gets me through many situations without having too many expectations of the outcome. )

I hope everything is well witheveryone and you all are having a great summer. I was very disappointed not to be able to get to Jonas' birthday party. I miss Tracy, Emily, and Jonas very much and would like to get to see them before summer is over. Once again, time will tell....
