up for air

Scott is in school right now. He will be done in late July. For now.... a quick update:

Kristie is starting to get pretty busy at work, and likes working downtown. She moves into a new office a few blocks away soon, and won't have to park in the crazy haunted house garage that she goes to now. Thats good because lately there have been bricks falling off the place, and the elevators randomly send her to floors she doesn't want.

She just got back from seeing the new biofuel plant her company opened in Wood River, Nebraska (Population: Corn, and thats pretty much it.)

She got to go up on top of the grain elevator high above the Nebraska Plains. Its said that on a clear day you can see all the way to even more fields.

I think this explains a lot about her real motive for taking the trip.

Scott's new job at BWG is going well. He just finished Construction Documents for an Elementary School, and is working on a few hospital projects right now. Studio is rough, as usual, but he's getting through it. His project is in a Favela (shantytown) in Rio de Janeiro. He's designing a series of spaces for a pathway that include a School, Outdoor Theater, Restaurants, a Samba School, Artist's Co-op, Community Garden, Market, Health Clinic, Daycare Center, and Substance Abuse Recovery Center. All the spaces will be temporary and changeable as the users see fit during the day and over time as needs change. Four more weeks and it'll be all done.

Lacey is happy her mom is home again, and has resumed her old job of following Kristie around the house, and laying on her every time she sits down.

More soon, hopefully.

Paul wants to know is Saul Turner is relocating to Favela (shantytown) in Rio de Janeiro? i explained that Saul, though an awesome dance instructor, might have issues with getting a visa, no?

sounds like y'all are super busy. glad the new job is going well and that Kristie is getting to travel to exotic and exciting places (beer) that's awesome!

it was so nice to talk to you the other night. I wish I knew when we'd be out there again. Kristie, the hard had suits you! It makes you look extra tough. Perhaps you should keep it and wear it in that shady parking garage...falling bricks?

With all that corn, I figure they also got quite a few aliens in Wood River, Nebraska.

And yes, the haunted house garage is creepy. But the "gas chamber" elevators were the worst part, not the falling bricks.
