2 Hunksi

So yesterday I get a phone call from the Assistant Principal, Mrs. Kuepker, from the kids school. My first thought was, "GREAT!!! Which one is in trouble?!" Here's how the conversation went...
"Hi, Kelly? This is Mrs. Kuepker from Briarwood. I'm calling to let you know that Parker was chosen to be in the Principal's 200 Club." "That's good," I said, "What is it?" LOL!!! "It's an honor the kids are given when they go above and beyond in service. Parker has been helping a kindergartener and he's being recognized for that."
Needless to say, we are SO proud of Parker. I know it's important to do well academically but to be told that your child goes above and beyond in how he treats people is a godly trait. I couldn't be more proud of him. It speaks volumes for they type of person Parker is and his character.

My New Digs

I have officially started my new job this week, which I have learned is one of the hardest things for me. Especially since I loved my old job, the people I worked with, and my office was super-spiffy (just needed a little decorating), but onward I must go...

Here is my new, temporary, office. It's at TinkerAFB in a machine shop. The actual building is planned for demolition so we'll be moving to a newly remodeled building in the next few months. For now here's where I spend the bulk of my day, anyone have any decorator tips??

I even took a pic of my rickety-old chair...might be needin' a Chiro soon!!
