A big update!!!!

Hello Everyone!!!!  We are finally starting to get settled in our new home.  Shirley Ann has been spending the last few days helping Amy and I do returns and get unpacked and get our apartment all put together.  It is really starting to look good.  I'll post some pictures as soon as I can.

Amy and I had a great honeymoon.  I posted some pictures online.  You can view them by clicking here.  I'll just warn you now...there are a lot so make sure that you have a few minutes when you go to look at them.  Scotland was one of the most beautiful places I have been to.  London was really fun!  Amy particularly loved being stuffed into little underground tunnels with thousands of people.  She loved the sanitary conditions that accompanied that experience.

In Scotland we went to go see Edinburgh Castle, The Royal Mile, The National Galleries, and took a bus tour to Glencoe, Loch Ness and the Highlands.  It was a great time.  In London we saw Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral and the Tower of London.  Our Hotel was Across the river from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament so we had a pretty neat view from our hotel room.  We also saw the musicals, Les Miserables and Wicked.  They were both phenomenal.

We also had the chance to attend a session (in French) at the London Temple.  It was really neat to take a train through the countryside to get there and then see the beautiful temple grounds.  We had a really nice session and the entire trip was great.  (It was almost like being on the Hogwarts Express!!!!)

I have been able to finish my finals and things have finally settled down.  It has been so wonderful the last two and a half weeks.  We love being married!  It is great!  Thanks to all of you for your help the last few weeks.  Our wedding and receptions were such memorable and special experiences for both of us.  Thanks for making it all possible for us.  We love you all!!!
