Apple Day!

Last weekend we took Adam and Amy to the apple orchard to pick apples, and then went back home and made yummy apple pies! We picked a lot of apples, Adam and Amy were really good pickers! They even went up into the trees to get the best apples! And the pies were so yummy! I know the one that went to our house only lasted a couple of days...

New Job starts Monday!

I am so excited to start my new job on Monday!

I stopped by the new office, it is just across the hall from my old office, and had a chance to meet most of my new team.

The strangest field trip...

David and I read an article in National Geographic Kids a couple of months ago about this place, and then completely forgot about it. Then Leah called on Thursday and said they had just read about it and asked if we wanted to go check it out.

David was really excited, but Kaylee was hesitant. She finally agreed to go as long as I promised not to let a scorpion sting her! The guy was really nice, he answered all of the kids' questions and even showed them what they eat (crickets). None of them were hungry so we didn't get to see them eat, but we saw them walk around, and the glass cases were at the perfect height for the kids, they were face to face! It was very cool. The guy even let the kids try on the magnifying goggles they wear to inspect jewelry. 

The article is interesting, it talks about his previous attempts at live decor. He's a really interesting guy. We asked if they had ever deterred anyone from stealing and he laughed and said "well, we're in South Lyon, so no" but then told us that he also has a store in Maryland that his son runs that had been broken into before, and the case with the scorpions had never been  broken into.

Spare time?

If you have some spare time, check out my new favorite game

I am stuck on the 4 Balls level

New Job

I finally got an interview for a new position at Trinity and I got offered the job!

I'll be starting on October 13th!

I am excited to have a chance to do more technical work and to get back on a day shift =)

My Thursday night class at Walsh shouldn't be a problem, it's boring anyway thanks to my CCNA classes at WLC.
