Thanks to everyone for your well wishes for Wayne and Nessie. Both are feeling much better today. Neither one is back to 100% yet but we are definitely on the right track. Nessie has even gained an ounce so that is a good sign! She was going backwards for a while there so that wasn't good. She is up to 1 pound and 2 ounces now!

While we were in Atlanta last weekend we went for a morning walk on the Emory campus. I love that campus! It was nice to go to school and work every morning and love the area I was in. It is such a beautiful campus. If you live in/near Atlanta and have never been to it you should go for a walk there sometime!

The brand new School of Public Health building is almost finished! They still have the old building where I went so this is an addition. Quite the addition, eh? All of the buildings that have been built there in the last 10-15 years or so are LEED certified and the campus is all about recycling and sustainability - YAY!!!


That is the old building in the background in the picture below. Now there is a fancy walkway connecting the two!



Then we saw the new sculpture of Dooly (the school mascot) that was dedicated in 2008. Why yes, our mascot is a skeleton! Unique!!

The building architecture is stunning. This is the School of Theology library.




There are lots of beautiful courtyards.



Petey took a dip in the fountain in front of the new medical building to cool off!

Your Petey looks just like my Casey, who would probably have done the same, going for a dip in a fountain if given the option. The campus is really beautiful!
