Oklahoma, OK!

I know we have countless fans waiting impatiently for an update (Hey, my mom does too count!), so I don't want to disappoint. Unfortunately, I am at work right now (don't tell...) so I am going to have to make this quick. So, though I would love to share the same "little details of our life" update that Mike wrote last time, you will have to deal with a general broad strokes update, once again.

Trip to OKC, OK. What a great conference last weekend! For those of you who we haven't talked incessantly about it, we went to the "After Ricoeur" Conference at Oklahoma City University, where we each presented course papers from our Ricoeur class last spring. The conference went well--we met students and professors from various colleges and universities, some of which we are applying in just a few short weeks! As far as touristy things, we went to Ground Zero, or rather the Murrah Building, the Oklahoma City National Memorial, the OKC famous spaghetti Warehouse (not to be confused with the chain restaurant--the spaghetti Factory, comon people!), lovely Bricktown, and the beautiful Myriad Botanical Gardens. Of course we also toured around Oklahoma City University campus, finding Paul Hansen Drive, and Paul Hansen Fitness Center (HA! That's for you, dad!).

Reading Week. We have been reading, of course, and also working. Some of the latest: The Cunning Man (finally finished by Y), Lectures on Philosophy (Y), Plenty of journals about pedagogy in higher education (Y), Freakanomics (M), Bernard of Clairvaux's sermons (M).

Well, that's about all for now, expect more later, I promise! We have the internet at home now, so hopefully we will be able to update more frequently! ICS Worldview Conference tomorrow, it is going to be a good one, I'll tell you all about it when I get back...
