I went hiking today at Mahoney State Park with the Cathedral Young Adults. It was good to get out of town, the weather was perfect. Katie and Meredith got to explore more of Nebraska, since they recently arrived from Connecticut.

We started on the Observation tower, which was a great view of the Platte River. It was a bit creepy how the Tower had a tendency to sway back and forth, which probably wouldn’t help anyone afraid of heights.

Then we started down the Trail, probably last chance to see leaves on the trees this Fall. One path took us up and down a ravine. That was fun, had to do a little climbing. Check out the pictures.

The hike was a great chance to get to know everyone a little better. I’ve been enjoying my time with the Cathedral Young Adults, everyone also met at my house this last Friday to hang out and watch some movies. Send me an email if you’re in the Omaha area and would like to join us, I can get you more details.

Finished the GMAT

I finished the GMAT on Thursday, which I need to gain entry into Graduate school for a MBA. The test is looong, taking 4 hours. It wasn’t overly difficult, but towards the end, I got tired of answering questions.

They printed out some unofficial results from the test and my score will be enough for me to get into the MBA program at UNO. Unfortunately, I will miss the deadline for the Spring semester, November 1st. I need the official results from the GMAT and it will take 2 weeks.

So, I will start next Summer, which is probably better. I need to do a major rewrite and overhaul of my software this Spring and I don’t know if I have the time to do both a rewrite and classes at the same time.

The Boys team qualified, which included Derek Sekora, Brandon Boesch, Brian Neilson, Brett Hodgen, Alex Theis and Jesse Oswald. Two girls qualified as individuals, Morgan Dubas and Meghan Nemetz.

The entire Boys team ran a great race, many of them PR’ed on the Kearney course. They finished 11th overall. Morgan Dubas ran a time that was 27 seconds faster than last year, and placed 16th overall. Meghan Nemetz improved from her performance last year by 5 places, running a great time.

I just got back from Norfolk, Nebraska where Mark Wemhoff had his wedding. Mark met his wife, Jennifer Nelson, three years ago during a canoeing trip at Valentine, Nebraska. They’re a great match, especially in height. They’re going to have giants for kids.

I just checked my voice mail and got a message from Coach Scott Rosno. The St. Cecilia Cross Country team had a great day at their District meet in Minden, Ne. The Girls team placed 5th overall, qualifying Morgan Dubas and Meghan Nemetz for State. The Boys team placed 2nd overall, qualifying the entire team for State. This is the highest team placing from a St. Cecilia Boys team in Districts, ever.

I wish I could’ve been there, and witnessed how all the StC squad’s hard work paid off. Congratulations Everyone!!!

The Cathedral Young Adults group did volunteer work for Habitat for Humanity today. It was a really good time, it was a good way to spend the Sunday afternoon. We worked on the floors, which wasn’t too difficult.
