Train Fun

We went to monkey park and rode the train. It was fun

As you can tell the seats can comfortably fit 1 adult and 1 child

Sammy, making train whistle sounds
Swinging and clinging
I stood here rocking them back and forth for a while

Quick Pics

We were in the other room and then heard crunching in the livingroom, they were swimming through a sea of rice crispies (could have been worse)

Watermelon is delicious

I fell asleep lying down with the boys. Kim thought it was funny that we could take up the whole bed. That's why she calls me diagnal man.

This is typical of my workout experiences, although I have never tried yoga. Anyone who wants to try my resting program let me know. Brian Regan is the funniest person alive

The NEW house

These pictures are long overdue, but here are pictures of the inside of our house with our few pieces of furniture in it

We still have a lot more work to do. We just kind of threw things on the wall and we definitly need more furniture in the living room, but we love our new couch (sorry it is a little hard to see, but it is brown and cozy) and armoir desk (a perfect space saving solution :), and the whole house. We are working on the bathroom and bedroom and the yard and should be completed soon. As we actually complete rooms, we'll send pics (this might take a while:)

I passed

My oral examination and defense went well. There were definitely more than a few questions that I fumbled my way through, but in the end they signed the paper and said congratulations, so I am now a master of science and will be working on my PhD soon. Just one more degree. This was the shortest amount of time spent on a degree besides junior high (I don't know if you count that), but it was definitely the most fun and I learned a lot. Thanks for your endless support.

Please....Call me Sensei

So this Thursday the 12th I have scheduled my seminar and defense for my master's degree. It is the last big thing that I need to do, basically I will be a master of science after Thursday. I originally scheduled it for Friday the 13th, but it didn't work our so the 12th will have to do. I was thinking since there is no title for a master's degree like Dr. for a PhD, that I would just go by sensei. so you can now all refer to me as Sensei Hirt. I should also start speaking in a very calm voice, use lots of allegories and call my pupils "grasshopper". However, I am assuming that I will pass my defense on Thursday. It is a big week, and right after the move, we will send pictures as soon as we get unpacked of the new house. Wish me luck. Also, here is a picture I doctored in photoshop for Sammy, he is really into buzz lightyear recently. The other day he shot Nephi with his laser through the phone, and often times presses buttons on his chest and zooms around his room with his arms as space wings. TO infinity and beyond! Luke does it too, he tries to do everything Sammy does, they are cute.
