What a Summer!



I apologize for not blogging much this summer. Allow me to offer my excuses. The UT graduation in the previous post was just a prelude to a fast and furious summer. We took our kids to South Beach in Miami for a little relaxation and beach action. Its hard to get quality time with adult children. Then Ashley packed up and moved to LA with lots of assistance from Jan. Just this week Ashley nailed a job with Harrison & Shriftman, a prestigious PR firm (see also here.) She now has a new apartment, a new roommate, a new California driver's license and bank account.

After Jan took her mother home to Mississippi for a visit, it was off to orientation at Southern Methodist University with Jordan. Yesterday we moved Jordan into his new apartment which is just off the SMU campus and very near his new job as a personal trainer at the Dedman Center for Lifetime Sports.

Oh yeah, Jan and I celebrated our 30th anniversary this month amid all of this excitement with the family. Maybe we only had time to celebrate with a nice dinner, but in my mind, we spent 30 years growing 2 great kids who are now out accomplishing big things.

Family College Doings

It was a great week for the Rogers family collegewise. My lovely daughter Ashley graduated from the University of Texas at Austin from the College of Communication with a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations. We brought in the grandparents and rolled down to Austin last weekend to celebrate this momentous occasion. Her academic career has been great and she finished with a high GPA, but as King Solomon opined 'Of the making of books there is no end and much study wearies the body,' so she was very involved in the Chi Omega sorority as a social outlet.

Jordan heard on Friday that he has been accepted to Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

My Daughter

In the proud parent department, my lovely daughter is a senior at the University of Texas and is now an intern for Burnt Orange Productions. She was recently quoted in the Daily Texan:

"Dot" is the first of three movies to be produced by Burnt Orange Productions LLC, the film studio created by The University of Texas Film Institute. It will employ more than 20 students from across the University with the aim of giving them hands-on, real-world experience in commercial filmmaking. ...

The cast includes Edie Falco of "The Sopranos," Camilla Belle of "Back to the Secret Garden" and Elisha Cuthbert of the show "24." ...

Organizers expect the film to be shot in 22 days, and approximately 22 UT students will be involved on the project, said Erin Geisler, a College of Communication spokeswoman. ...

For Ashley Rogers, a public relations senior, the chance to work on the filming of "Dot" is her first internship and experience on a professional project. All the interns are unpaid but receive academic credit for their work.

"It's a great opportunity to work with real professionals in the entertainment industry," Rogers said. "When we start filming, I will get to go on set and do interviews with the cast and crew - splitting some of that time with another PR intern. It's a pretty fast-paced environment, and there's always something new to do everyday that's popped up."

That's my baby!!!
