Wow, hello blogging world. Yes, I'm aware that it has been nearly 3 months since I blogged. That's 1/4 of a year. Luckily, Noah has kept you at least somewhat in the loop with his quick posts. Well, I apologize, but I certainly hope you'll welcome me back with open arms. This post will be a huge catch up post, so I understand if you want to just browse the pictures. But…
If you are taking the time to look at our blog, PLEASE comment! I want to know you're out there - especially if you have a blog yourself. I love keeping up on old acquaintances and finding new ones through blogs. Even a quick shout out will do. :)
A few of the major occurrences since my last post:
My Grandpa Bisel’s funeral
Promotion at work
Trip to Pinetop with Nate and Celeste
We flew up for the funeral, and it was beautiful. Here are a few pictures from it. My grandpa was taken in a horse-drawn carriage to the cemetery, followed by a horse with no rider. It was a sad but wonderful day, and we were so happy to be able to visit. All but one or two of my cousins were there, and it was great to see not only my immediate family, but my extended family as well.
PROMOTIONRemember this? My first paycheck at University of Phoenix. Well, one year and many paychecks later, I have been promoted to be an Academic Counseling Manager. I got hired to manage a brand new expansion team, so all my employees are brand new. I was technically promoted on 12/1, but I will be creating the groups of students for my counselors, and they will be out of training and ready to work on 12/18. Wish me luck!
In the current economy, it's great to have a job. But to have one with a company that is growing and hiring, who has amazing benefits, and who continuously promotes from within is such a blessing. The pay raise is nice, too.
In October, we were invited again to Pinetop, AZ by our friends, Nate an Celeste. Last year we did nothing. We happily hung out in our pajamas and watched movies and played games. This year, although we both have new babies,we chose to have a little more adventure. We all have bikes and we got bike trailers for the little ones (had to put the whole carseat in, but it worked). We had so much fun. Thank you Nate and Celeste!
