Well you gotta love BACK TO SCHOOL! On August 17, I started my new job at Mitchell Public Schools and absolutely love it. I can honestly say I have no complaints and go home pretty happy most days.
Jake also started school again and is also working part-time for the NE Dept of Roads. He goes to classes MWF and works TR. He is also busy fulfilling his calling as ward clerk.
Callie also got to start daycare and I couldn't be more happy with the facility. Callie's vocabulary has exploded, she is getting potty trained, she sleeps in a "big girl bed" (only after sleeping on a cot at daycare), and gets great social interaction. While I know that I am missing out on many precious memories, given the cards we have been dealt, I couldn't be more pleased. She is thriving and happy!
Others that have happened are Callie got to be on the front page of the Star Herald. We attended Pioneer Days in Bayard, NE on Aug 22 and she was photographed picking up candy during the parade. It was kinda fun getting to see her in the paper the next day.
My sister also had her Bridal Shower this past month and was married yesterday Sept 5, 2009. The wedding was beautiful and I am very happy for her. I got be her maid of honor and sang "When You Say Nothing at All" by Allison Krause during the ceremony.
Until next time...
