This blog is a record of events in the life of Joseph Taggart and his family since his spinal cord injury while body surfing in Guatemala in January 2006.

Attending Class with Class 2/5/07

Joseph is part way through the semester at the University of Utah majoring in Political Science and International Studies. This semester he is taking three classes: Philosophy of International Justice Systems, Foreign Policy, and Public Administration. He has a ton of reading, but is really enjoying it. As you can see from the photo of his textbooks we spiral bind each book so he can turn the pages easily. He has delved into Philosophy, Vietnam, the Cold War and a host of other interesting topics. It is amazing to his parents to observe his intellectual growth and increasing focus.

Looking back at the blog, one year ago Joseph was eating his first solid food since the accident and looking forward to having the feeding tube removed from his nose. We’ve come a long way, baby!

Hi, Joseph and Taggarts! Sorry it's been a while since I checked in. Between my job and school, I don't know if I'm coming or going. Right this minute, I should probably be in bed (11:19 p.m.). I enjoyed reading the most recent updates. Congrats on the schooling, Joseph! I know how much work it is...stretching the old (and in my case, they really ARE "old") gray cells. It's good for the soul. Keep up the good work.
