It has been a crazy last couple of weeks! It feels like we have been here longer than we actually have because we have been so busy! All I do is work, study for school, and occasionally run (considering Nick and I are running a 1/2 marathon at the end of November, I need to run more, I just don't have the time!). Also last week, I found out who my mentor teacher is for my student teaching! I get to observe a 4th grade class and teacher each week for 7 months. Next Friday I am going on a field trip with them! And I can't leave out Nick, he is still training and studying daily how to fly the HS60 Bravo.
On top of all the above business, Nick woke up sick this Tuesday morning with a fever, sore throat and aches all over! Of course that only led to me getting sick a day later as well! So besides in-taking as much meds and fluids as we could, we attempted to get as much sleep (with NyQuil) as possible in an effort to get ourselves better! Why didn't we go to the doc you ask? Well because they told us they couldn't get either of us in for 2 WEEKS!!! Thank you Navy! Nick even went on base to sick call early one morning to see if he could get in, and after 2 hours of sitting there, he was still number 20 on the list! Needless to say, we are still both sick! Oh yea, and I still had to go to work every day this week and teach kids with germs! Boo for being sick!
On another note, today was OU's big rivalry football game! For those who don't know, (which is crazy cause it's totally common knowledge! Haha...kidding!) our big game is versus UT and it is played every year at the Texas Stadium on the Texas Fairgrounds! Of course we couldn't go this year which is a total bummer, considering so many of our friends and even family were there. But, thanks to ABC, we got to watch it. Beretta watched it too, she sported her OU bandana in support of the SOONERS!!! BOOMER!
She says, "let me in....is it time for the OU game to start yet?"
Such Sooner Pride!She loves this OU ball! Until today, when you bounce the ball it started playing OU's fight song and then it said, "Boomer Sooner". Beretta loved this, and she would get excited every time the fight song played. However, she got a little too excited and now it doesn't play the song anymore! :(
Intense! Watching the Sooners play some football!
OKLAHOMA!!!!Exsausted...it was an intense game! We were up for the first half of the game 6-o. We were tied for the 3rd quarter and then the Longhorns pulled through in the 4th quarter and ended up winning by 3 points. The final score was 13-16! So close, yet no win!
