What's New With You?

It's a new semester.  It's a new school year.  And we've got some new stuff in our lives, so I thought I'd update y'all.

~We have new sixth graders
It's always a fun time at the beginning of the school year when we have new sixth graders come into the youth group.   We have several this year.  Here's me with one of them, Lauryn, at the women's tea party at church a few weeks ago.  She gives grrrreat hugs, is super sweet and I'm super excited to finally have her in the youth group.

~Trent got a new-to-us car
Trent has been eyeing Subaru WRX wagons for a while years and we found a good deal on one a few weeks ago and after some discussion, thought and negotiations, ended up getting it.  It looks like just a short hatchback type station wagon but actually it is a turbo charged standard with a lot of horsie power.  He's loving it and enjoying having air conditioning, a cup holder and a radio.   Does anyone want to buy a 2007 Honda VTX 1300C motorcycle? Our driveway is a little squished in the meantime...

(Bike is really for sale.  Not kidding.)

~I got promoted
Oh, I didn't tell you that?  It actually happened way back at the end of July.  I'm no longer a wee Staff Accountant. I am now a Senior Accountant.  Is it too unprofessional in the accounting world to say "I'm stoked"?

~Our church has a new senior minister
His name is Brian and so far things have been great.  This is an exciting new chapter in the life of our church and we are "stoked" that he is here.  (I don't have to worry about being professional at church...come on, I spend most of my time there with crazy young people.)

~Can't forget the birth of our niece!

So those are a few things that are new with us.  What's new with you?
