I liked how hands-on everything seemed too. Our guide was telling us that the instructors will spend time lecturing on the area they will dissect, then do a dissection for the class to demonstrate how, then they left the students do it. As a teacher I was very impressed that they cover 3 of the learning modalities: hear, see, do. Overall it was a very exciting experience to see what Scott would be doing. Plus, he got super excited about it too!
The best part? Their health center. Students and family get to visit the center for free adjustments at any time. I will definitely be taking advantage of that! Also, the director of the Sports Rehab Masters Program is from BYU!! And one of his colleagues is the Chiropractor for the Cardinals. Pretty sweet I think! Scott will definitely have all kinds of help and exposure to find the right sports chiropractic job he wants. We're so excited!
We also went to Babies R Us yesterday and started our registry. Oh my gosh it was so overwhelming! I had no idea babies needed so much. And how many different things there are to choose from! I seriously have no idea what things to get from car seats to stroller, to crib, to bottles, to sheets, etc. It was fun but definitely overwhelming since we're still so clueless. Thus, any help or suggestions we get is great.
Today we went to the Arch downtown and also to the CityGardens. It was really cool! We just walked around the Arch and went to the little museum inside. We decided to forgo the $19 it would cost for the two of us to ride to the top. City Gardens was awesome though! We were with Dave and Kathryn and their kids so we had a ton of fun playing in the fountains. It's a section of concrete with tons of water fountain things spraying up from the ground. It was really cool and totally reminded me of the fountain park thing in Kansas City! It was also fun to drive around downtown a bit and see how cool the city is.
I'm so happy to be here! It's such a cool place with so much character and so many opportunities for so many things. It definitely helps to have friends next door too!
