About Us

The purpose of our blog is to share our journey through life with family and friends while we leave our mark on this world. Our 20's have been very kind to us and as we enter the 30's we are hoping to continue to enjoy our time in this thing we call life. I should have called this blog "Traveling through Life".

Busy Week followed by a busy weekend

Last week I was in training all week for some new equipment that our lab will be receiving. The equipment is used on the A&E tv show Crime 360. The tv show is actually in Indy right now and for the next 8 months filming our crime scenes for their show. It's all pretty exciting but I am hoping to dodge the tv cameras. The equipment is like a camera that scans the whole room and lets you view it on a computer. It's really more advanced than I can explain it, you would need to watch the show to see an example. I had to miss the end of the training due to sad news that my great grandmother passed away. She lived a wonderful life but her 88 years was starting to wear on her and she will be very missed.

While I was home for the funeral I got to spend a lot of time with my cousin and her new baby boy. It was so much fun to snuggle with him while she took a nap :) The whole family enjoyed having a baby around. They even started to put a little pressue on me.

Saturday we went to a Sondgeroth Reunion/B-day party at Racoon lake. It was a lot of fun and I wish I had pictures from the day. Matt was really excited to hang out with this side of his family that he doesn't get to see as much. We spent most of the day on the lake and only came back to eat. There were a lot of little funny happenings that ended up just being bonding experiences with his family. The food was wonderful, the people were wonderful, and I'm really glad that we went.

First Post

So we finally caved and started a blog so we could stay in touch with family and they could see what we have been up to. I don't know how good I will be at keeping it current because I am also part of the Myspace and Facebook craze so I can keep in touch with my distant friends. Matt isn't into blogging so this may be just about me but I will try to keep him included :)

This summer we have been pretty active around Lebanon for once and trying to get involved in the town that we have lived in for three years. We went to the 2 week long 4th of July Festival here in town and enjoyed the activites and now the Boone County Fair is going on. We use to say that we were hanging out with the "locals" and now I think it hit us that we are the "locals".
With the summer heat kicking in we tried to do some indoor stuff today. We went to the Indianapolis Musuem of Art to see the Exhibit from Egypt. It had mummy tombs and art and a lot of really amazing things. Egypt is one of the places I would love to visit but I was hoping to get a little taste of it just in case I never make it there. Matt was a good sport eventhough he doesn't have as much of an appreciation for art but I do think he appreciated the history of all of it. Besides he got to go to Rock Bottom Brewery afterwards. We love that place. We also went to see the new batman movie tonight. It was excellent eventhough it was long.
Tomorrow will probably be a wonderful lazy Sunday since we were gone all day!
