Thinking of You

Our dear friend Scott shipped out to somewhere in Iraq yesterday. Although I am not fond of the military, nor am I fond of this war, I am very fond of Scott. I wish him safe travels and an uneventful year of duty in Iraq. As a helicopter pilot (he flies the Chinook, or the double propellered cargo helicopter) I am sure he will see plenty of action over the next year. I ask that you keep him in your thoughts and send him positive energy to sustain him durring the next year. We love you Scott.

A proper young lady

So it has been a while since we posted a photo of our darling kitty Olive. I couldn't resist posting this photo: isn't she the cutest. Anyway, life is good and our kitty is cute. Enjoy.

Going back to my roots!

No I am not talking about my hair color. It is official, I am employed. If you can't guess from the photo, I am a Girl Scout again! (Either that or I am an animal trainer, right?)

I am a program manager for the Girl Scouts. What does that mean? I have been working there for just over 3 weeks and I am not really clear on that yet. I know that I am responsible for the planning of council programing for Daisy, Brownie and Junior Girl Scouts. (Girls ages 5-12) But there is so much to learn and I have been told the curve is a long one. I will keep ya'll updated. Hopefully a little more frequently than I have been!

p.s. Can you believe that this is one of the only photos of me in my Girl Scout uniform? There are about 80 pictures of Elliot in his Cub Scout uniform and even some of my dad in his leader uniform, but me... I guess I don't merit a photograph in my uni unless there is a cat to make it interesting. (That is Barney by the way, my family's first cat.)
