Quick recap

Well, it certainly has been a while since I have posted! Over a month! It’s been kind of a crazy month. I’ll write more in detail later, but here’s a quick recap:

Most of the month was spent prepping for our Breakaway summer day camp/VBS… 480 kids plus over 300 volunteers participated. It was a blast!

Meanwhile, Megan was throwing up for 11 days straight and went to many doctors and had many tests. In the end we discovered she had been dehydrated and her nausea was a result. She’s been drinking lots of water and is doing better, though she is down to 86 pounds because she has not felt well for a long time. 🙁 We praise God it was nothing serious!

Daniel also found a new job as a math tutor so he has been adjusting to that.

Albert made a whole semester’s worth of videos lectures for his class… he’s been busy cranking stuff out!

I’ve been taking a design class (Construction Documents) that I was told would be 10-13 hours of work. Instead, it has been over 20+ hours of work a week because it requires a ton of hand drafting. There are also lectures, quizzes, and forum posts. I’m really enjoying it but it is really intense. Every week is compressed into 3 days, and every week’s lesson (3 days worth) has anywhere from 2-4 project assignments. This snapshot is just one out of 2 assignments for one week. (Centimeter ruler on the left for scale.)

Meanwhile I am also taking a seminary class on fellowship, which is reading lectures, watching videos, doing homework/writing papers, writing posts, and taking quizzes.

Also, I have been taking a ton of pictures for Breakaway, homework, family stuff, etc. My hard drive went from 100 GB of free space two weeks ago to now 32.3 GB free. That’s a lot of files and photos that were recently added!

Today is Albert and my 22nd anniversary! We celebrated on Thursday but I will post later about it. There are so many things to write about… just haven’t had any time. I’m on day 3 of my vacation and have been doing homework with a little time to relax, but my class finishes up next week so I should have time then.

And exciting news… my sister had a new baby! Baby Xavier has entered the world! I’m so bummed I can’t visit right now. Need to figure out how to travel while taking a class that ties me to a drafting desk, as I am taking another class this fall in preparation to submit a portfolio for a master’s degree! (I have heard that some students literally travel with their drawing board and t-square!)

I look forward to writing soon!

Here’s another poll, just for fun!

    You definitely have to come visit and meet the new baby! Today we were watching all his funny baby expressions and laughing. Amazing how much they grimace and pout while they’re sleeping!

    I also want to say that I am glad Megan is doing better. I can’t believe she was just dehydrated. How could that possibly cause so much trouble that they thought there was a brain issue?? Or she also had an infection over a longer period of time? She weighs so little that you better feed her well so she can get back to normal weight!

      I think she also had an infection and there was dehydration as well. She is eating more now. Yay!
