I'm Ba-ack

Friday, September 08, 2006

Now that I'm finally back I don't know where to start. A lot has happened since my last post so I don't think I will even try to pick up where I left off. I can give a quick summary of the past 3 months though. In the end of June we took Jayden on his first trip to BC to see Grandma and Grandpa and his Uncles Keith & Tom and his Aunt Stacey, not to mention a few of my good friends from another life. It was good to see family and friends again and get to spend a longer period of time with everybody. When I got back to work I felt like I could finally let go of all things Admissions and really dive into my new position in Student Development.

Students are now here and the last 2 weeks have been incredible. I knew this was a position I wanted and I knew that I would enjoy it but I no idea that I would love it this much. I truly feel like I was made for this. Everyday is exciting no matter how uneventful it is. The hours just fly by while I'm here whether it's a 50hr week or a 70hr week. The only downside is the time I miss with my family, but I know that will change once things settle down to the normal roar.

I did, however, manage to be home for Jayden's first steps. I was home for lunch and just as I was leaving, he was standing next to the coffee table looking at me with a smirk. So I knelt down and asked him to come to me. I didn't take much coaxing and he was taking 1, 2, 3 steps away from the coffee table and into my arms. What a proud moment. The following clip is not of his very first steps but they're at least from the first week.

    So glad to have you back!

    I'm so thankful and excited to hear about your new position...and glad that you're loving it to pieces. That's the abundant life, huh!? Find the thing that God made you for! Can't wait to chat with you...perhaps there's a phone call in the near future!
