World Cup Hopes Over

Well, I got home from work today and was fortunate enough to not hear the scores all day. The first half was alittle exciting, but all in all, the US just didn't have it in them this year.

My brother, in the events of getting married last weekend, received an email regarding a job he applied for at Lilly. So while he is on his honeymoon this week, he was asked to interview! Its good news. The job is a Fixed Duration Employee job. I don't know much about it, but it atleast gets him some experience at Lilly. His job will only be 12-15 fixed months, then he has to find another job. The hope would be that there might be something at Lilly after its done, but who knows. We will see how the interview goes.

An Exciting Weekend

This weekend, my younger brother Adam was married to Amanda Love (now Amanda Phillips)! It was a great weekend. I was the best man and I was honored to stand next to my brother on this memorable day. I wasn't nervous for my speech as I have done this a few times, but I couldn't really read my notes (oops). Since I hadn't looked over the notes much, I struggled to read. Oh well, the cake was good. Oh yeah, and they are extremely happy!

Luckily, there was a TV in the basement of the church, so we were able to make an antenna out of a piece of wire and catch some of the World Cup! Way to go US. This Thursday might have to be a long lunch off site :) It should be a good game versus Ghana, who looked great against Italy.

Take care everyone.

The Weekend

This weekend we went camping at Turkey Run State Park for my brother Adam's bachelor party. It was a great weekend! The weather was awesome, hiking was good, people were cool. We played washers, cornhole, frisbie, basketball, and took a canoe trip. The river was nice, but unfortunately my cousin Jacob lost his wedding ring while we were tipping each other's canoes over (he didn't notice until we got back to camp).
