Whew! I feel like I just ran a marathon! The last few months have been a complete world wind of activities and events. Since I last check in there have been many great and trying adventures that we have been on, here are just a few. First for the great part of our adventures...we have been very blessed that David received a job offer the second week in May. It is with US Bank as a branch manager for a small in-store bank located in a grocery store. While it does not have much staff to supervise it does have it's own challenges. This particular branch has only been open about 18 months and has NEVER made any of their goals. Dave has been hard at work to change the "can't" attitudes into "can do" attitudes.
Dawson just got back from his first Scout Camp and is completely exhausted! He passed off several merit badges including archery (why does that scare me a little?).
Now for the trying...my Aunt Kathy passed away last week after a year long battle with cancer. She was only 43 when she was called home. She leaves behind her 19 year old daughter, Larisa. I was able to attend the funeral on Tuesday with my mother (the eldest sister to Kathy). It was a beautiful funeral with lots of family there to support one another. After we received word that she had passed I had so many emotions that went though me. As I was editing some of the photos from the funeral I found myself choking back tears. I realized that some of those emotions were those of loss for my father in law four years ago and how much I miss him and his quite support. I also realized again how precious eternal families are.
Kathy will be missed.
