New Adventures

It has been over a year since I posted on my blog! I have no idea how the time went by so fast, but it escaped, and now we are here. I think it's high time that I let the post about my grandmother go to the archives and let me cherish the memories of her! In the last year, I have had many new adventures! Let me share a few of them. Thanks to my grandmother, we got to travel back to Oregon, and see family and friends. We visited cherished events and places of my childhood, such as the Scandinavian Festival at Junction City, Oregon, and the beach at Florence, Oregon. I am so grateful for that chance! Another new adventure was that I got a job! Okay, yes, I've already had a job as a storyteller, but storytelling isn't exactly steady work. With both of my girls getting older, it was time for me to start looking at what I wanted to be when I grew up. Last March I started work as a High School Science Teacher! Kind of. My official title is Teacher's Assistant, and I work with Youth in Custody in a local school district. Part of my list of responsibilities is to teach their science class. This was not a job I expected or even wanted when it was offered to me. It turned out to be something that I loved doing! In a few weeks summer will be over, and I'll be going back for my first full school year. I'm looking forward to it! My last really big adventure was that my husband and I were able to go to France! My husband was sent out there for work, so I tagged along, and we took a few days in Paris before travelling out to his work site. Europe was a place I longed to see, but never imagined I would ever get there. It was magic, and I dearly hope that the opportunities come to visit again! The rest is a string of little adventures, some wonderful, some not so much. Isn't that pretty much how life works? While living the stories, I need to remember to come over here and write them down. For certain, the story isn't over!
