This past weekend we spent our time at Ball State. I left school Friday afternoon and picked up Mackenzie on my way to Indianapolis to pick up Rick at the airport. We then made the rest of the trip to Muncie. I was asked to give the keynote speech at the NRHH Leadership Conference (an organization I was part of during college). It was quite an honor, but fairly stressful writing a 20 minute speech.
I had some technical difficulties in printing the speech and then getting the powerpoint up on the projector. I was fortunate that Rick was patient with me and got everything working perfectly!
Getting things in order at the last minute.
The speech was supposed to be 20 minutes...I spoke for about 35...00ps!

I spoke about Megan and the impact she and her passing has had on my life and what it can teach others about living in the moment and cherishing what life has to offer.
Maria was also part of my speech!
The newly renovated DeHority. It is hard to believe this is the same building I lived in my freshman year! We stayed in a suite there on Saturday night.

There are some awesome fish sculptures outside of Woodworth now. Of course we had to have our picture taken with them!

Rick believes he can hear the babies heartbeat so he was listening!
