There is a lovely river that runs right through the center of downtown Ann Arbor. When we first got here Jon went canoeing with the rest of the M1s and he had a great time! So last Saturday he decided that we should go together. I have not been the most outgoing person in past years and doing adventerous things often gets me a little anxious. But no longer am I going to be this woman!! I want nothing more than to be the fun, outgoing, spontaneous, adventerous girl!! First step, canoeing!
I was a little worried once I saw the size of the canoe, I forget how long they can be. I felt there was no way it was going to be successful. But I had a BLAST!! We laughed and splashed each other, we went fast but we definitely spent some time just going slow and enjoying the view. We almost tipped over 3 times and just managed to save ourselves each time!!! We went in the morning and the weather was perfect!! The river was so beautiful!! It was just sublime!!
We even stopped in some lily pads on the side of the river in hopes of seeing frogs, we didn't see any but it was so pretty it didn't matter!! The whole trip took about 2 hours and we loved every minute!! It was definitely a fun adventure and I can't wait until the next one!!
Jon took his first test and passed!! He had a study group at the house the day before and I got to meet a few more of his classmates. I'll tell you what, it is so intimidating to be surrounded by so many super smart doctors-to-be, yikes. But they are all nice, so that's good!!
There are so many things I want to do now that we are here and I am trying to get my brain to slow down enough to think straight so I can write them down and get them done.
