I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Everyone deserves some time to just play.
My new job is going great, I am in the process of learning new accounting software (I know - I'm a nerd), and learning a new industry. This job is now taking me out of the office once in a while; I am leaning how to conduct a Lead Paint and Pre-Shipment Inspections for items being shipped over seas. I've learned and lot and have a lot to learn. I am really enjoying the challenge.
Well, it's official, the date has been set and the church as been reserved - Big K is getting married on January 1, 2011. They were hoping to get married before summer and with him being in the service and family out of state that teaches finding a date was getting hard and they were getting very discouraged. Last weekend we took a family trip to Oceans of Fun (it's a water park) and during one of our conversation with Big K and N we suggestion the Christmas holiday. So here we are - 6 month out, no more time to doddle. I think she's picking out and ordering her dress today.
I received a call from a friend on Monday, they are hosting a foreign exchange student this year and told me about a girl hadn't been placed yet and time was running out for her. After reading her profile they thought about our family and asked if we would consider it, I said sure, send me the profile. I thought no harm in reading it and chances are it won't go anywhere. Four days later we have prayed-talked-prayed some more-cleaned out our office/stash it all room and have met with the coordinator. Our new addition to the family should arrive the middle of August. I'll share more information as I get it.
Little K gets her senior pictures taken this week. I can't believe she is going to be a senior and will be graduating. Little K is a senior model this year for Captured Memories. Here is one of her model pictures:
Now with all of that said - maybe I am a little crazy but it sure won't be boring around here for the next 11 months. The question is - once everyone leaves next year what will B & I do with ourselves?
Have a great weekend.
