Paul has Graduated!!!

Today, December 15, 2007, after just five and a half short years, Paul Harvey has graduated from SUNY Oswego with a Bachelor of Science in Math Education! His years of hard work and partying have paid off, and with only two teacher certification exams remaining to be taken, Paul will be one of New York State's newest math educators.

  • His configuration of mathematical statistics in determining the amount to charge each beer pong team at 120 Liberty Street certainly added to his ability in conquering those terrible college-level math courses.

  • His division skills were built upon after an incident with a bank sign landed him in the ER with 8 staples and a fairly large hospital bill. Hm.... how much will I have to pay each month?

  • The skittles he supplied his 7th grade students, was perhaps what taught him the most valuable lesson of all... the way to the student's brains is candy!
Much has been learned in those precious five and half years of college and as Paul embarks on the next journey of his life, don't hestitate to ask about his college years, for I'm sure there are many more stories and lessons lingering. But, as for now, "now you know the rest of the story,"... Paul enters the real world in hopes of making it big!

Apple Picking

Clockwise from top-left: Katie, Moritz, Dad, Mom

Apple-picking has always been a family favorite during fall. This year was no exception, except for the fact that Paul and Richard "grew up 10 years ago" and opted out. In their place, we took along Moritz, an exchange student from Germany who spent six weeks with our family. It was his first time going apple picking in the U.S. He said that there are apple orchards in Germany, but "not like this." The trip was completed with a wagon-ride, apple cider and cider donuts, as well as a trip into the Orchard Store. Overall, it was a great time... now it's time to put all those apples to use!

"Cousins" Scrapbook

From left: Kurt H., Katie H., Richard H., Kevin H., Paul H., Nikki A., Dani A., Greg M., Erin M., Cindy M., Cara M., Colleen M., and Christy M.

It's been years since the whole "Harvey-McLogan" clan has been in one location at the same time. However, this past August, we've come as close as we're likely to get, now that all the cousins are grown and working jobs that have led us from New York to Florida to Australia and beyond (our world travel, Brian Harvey). This rare image captures the essence of family at its best! Brian M. and Brian H., you were certainly with us in our thoughts and there WAS even talk of "photoshopping" you in to the picture, but I haven't quite mastered that process yet...
