Potter Update

During Priesthood session is a good time to sit down and write a little update I've been meaning to :)

We are in our official countdown to graduation from law school. Hooray! But in that we have realized that there's still a lot of things we haven't accomplished yet on our "East Coast To Do List." We've decided that since John's already accepted a job offer at Orrick Harrington & Sutcliff in San Francisco for next fall, school doesn't need to be as time consuming as it once was. We are taking time to play! In the past couple weeks we've gone to the Jersey Shore, Princeton, hit up a Yankees game and picked our own fruits and vegetables at a farm. Next weekend is our fall foliage trip and the weekend after that is Boston. So we are packing it all in before the weather turns cold.

In between our trips we've been keeping busy. John has been involved in Moot Court and is the Law Republicans President this year. He's also been put in as Young Man's President (we really only have one active young man in our ward...sad!). Mia is learning something new everyday. She is determined to start running as soon as possible. My back is starting to ache a bit as we make lap after lap around the apartment. For Halloween she is going to be a chicken. We took pictures of her in it at the farm the other week. I think Halloween is going to be a lot more fun for me from here on out...haha. As for me, I'm loving being mom. Mia and I play with friends from the ward on a regular basis and we like to go on lots of walks. I've also started going back to work at the ad agency I worked for previously. It's nice that I just go in once a week to help with special projects while John watches Mia.

If anyone wants to make an NYC trip anytime in the next 8 months you'd have somewhere to stay! We'd love to have you!

Thanks so much for the post! I love the photos. That's one very cute baby you have! I'm planning on a trip to New York just after the first of the year (American Assoc. of Law Schools Annual Meeting Jan 2-6). If you're in town, I'd love to see you! I may bring Ruth with me, as she is applying to NYU, which we are told is one of the best places in the U.S. to study Arabic.
