our new car....

It's kinda like having a baby. Except it is not as needy. But, it is a lot of fun!

one last week of freedom

Dave had his birthday on Saturday. I had a camp meeting that morning, but that evening we were able to celebrate by going out to California Pizza Kitchen with Ben and Natalie. We had a relaxing weekend, going to church for the first time in a month since it was the first weekend we were back in town.

I learned that I have passed 2 out of the 3 sections of the CSET, the test that I need to take in order to get my teaching credential! I will be taking the last section on History (World, US and California) and Literature (reading, phonics, etc.) in July.

Dave and I are currently in the process of getting a car. It is quite exciting and provides us a lot to talk about. We are hoping to have a car by the end of this week. Currently, it is between a Honda Fit, a Nissan Sentra, and a Volkswagen Rabbit.

I really begin work on Friday of this week. I will be at camp until the last week in August. It is a full-time job, and will be quite exhausting. I am so excited to be around kids and to also be somewhat in charge of what we do. I feel quite unqualified because I have never had a job like this. It will be a great learning experience for me.

Back to the grind

Dave has returned from a ten day trip to Malawi (in Africa). He had a great time there and was able to learn quite a bit. He told me that Africa is quite lovely and he has many interesting stories. While he was gone, I took a trip to Phoenix to visit Shawna. It was good to see her again, and we had fun hanging out. We got to do some girly things that I don't get to do when Dave is around.

Dave is back at work this week. He is enjoying his job tremendously. I am working at a YMCA day camp this summer. We have training this week and next, and then camp begins the last week in June. I am an assistant director, meaning that I get to be involved with the campers as well as with directing the staff! I am very excited and cannot wait to see what this summer holds for me.
