Another one bites the dust...

Another semester, that is! We finished classes today and the Fall Semester of 2007 is now in the past. Well, we still have finals. No, correction... I still have finals. So this next week is going to be a little rough. I have a Spanish written final on Saturday (I know, SATURDAY. How outrageous is THAT!?). Then I have a religion final Monday and then I'm tutoring for that same final later that afternoon. Tuesday is my
Spanish oral final (blah) and then I get a break on Wednesday. Following that much needed respite, I have my last final for my American Novel class...at 7:00 AM Thursday. Again I say, how outrageous is THAT!? Oh well. Then, thankfully, I'm done.

So you may be wondering what my reference is to that I am the only one with finals this week. Well, now that Zac has been officially accepted into the Animation program, he plays on computers during his classes and turns in pretty pictures for his finals. Ok, ok, I don't give him enough credit. He works really hard. And he's super talented...I couldn't even begin to TRY to do what he does. So these are two of his final images he had to turn in for one of his classes. Basically, he's awesome.


If you click on the images, you can see them in better detail. Zac can explain the actual process to you, but he basically drew the dragonfly, then drew it again in a program on the computer. Then he works with lighting and shading and textures and colors to make it 3-D and makes it look like a photo. From the designs on the dragonfly to the shape and size of the blades of grass...it really is phenomenal. My husband is so talented!!!!

So other than the semester being over, not much else to tell. I'm sick again, but that's not new. It seems that it happens A LOT these days. I think Logan is stealing all of my antibodies. And...hmmm... Oh! Zac's Aunt Pam and Uncle Mike are in town this week, so they took us, Liz, Savannah, and Matt out to dinner at the Brick oven. It was really good!!! Nothing beats a good salad bar and homemade root beer for this girl. And Logan just loves being the center of attention. It was the first time he met his Great-Aunt Pam and Great-Uncle Mike. I have a feeling he likes them.

Well, only 10 days till we leave! And 11 till we're home! It's coming up so fast...we can't wait.

hey! congrats on almost being done with your semester! just think...only 3 more semesters or less...woohoo! thanks for missing me at dinner--that's what happens when you make your students do a huge project and they talk too much during class. anyway, i thought i'd like the pink background but i'm going to have mathieu change it. it looks weird!
