Half of a Sunbowl

26 December 2015

snow

I was very excited to see my first football game since coming to El Paso. However I had no idea we would be dealing with snowy conditions for a game under the title of Sun Bowl. The forecast was calling for rain but as we sat down in the stadium the flurries started. The snow continued to come down until we were pretty much soaking wet. We made a good time of it until just before half time when we called it a day. Washington State University ended up beating Miami 20-14 but we watched the rest of the game from our nice cozy living room.

After 18 grueling months the day of graduation has finally arrived. Curt and I flew to Waco from El Paso and my parents drove from Pennsylvania for the big day. Baylor seems to love their military and had a great luncheon for the 13 doctoral graduations from the Army and Air Force at the Baylor Club. It is in the new stadium and they had some suites opened for us to peek in.

After the lunch we move to the auditorium for graduation. The hooding ceremony for the doctoral graduates is saved for last and really special. After that I was free from this program!

El Paso Rhinos

El Paso Rhinos

Now that school is out and I get to be a normal person again I have time to do things like go to hockey games. The game was a blast with the Rhinos winning in overtime 3-2! And best of all Curt and I were on the Kiss Cam and won a gift certificate for flowers!
