Now that I am mostly done tinkering with Blogger code, I can breathe and catch up on posting.
Prais the Lord, Chris has a job! The firm he worked for this summer called him back one week after his internship ended and offered him a spot for next fall. We are so thankful for that offer! It takes a lot of pressure off of this next year, and it allows us to start making plans in advance instead of at the last minute.
Equally exciting is that there is a university about 45 minutes from where Chris will be working that offers a Master’s of Social Work. So, Lord willing, next fall I should be able to make some serious progress towards that degree. I’m a long way behind on prerequisites, but I’m taking a class this semester on Family and Society, and I’ll take another class next semester as well. Then perhaps I can do the remaining 10 or 12 credits that I need to be accepted next fall, hunt up an internship or some kind of work experience, and then get going full time on the degree in the fall of 2008, with completion in May 2010.
DeWitt is merrily gaining weight. I thought that was a good thing (just a growing boy!), but now the doc tells me that we have a pudgy budgie. 😦 I’m not sure what to do with him since he won’t touch the food that the vet recommended to replace the seed, but I comfort myself with the knowledge that my family raised four or five birds on seed, and they all did just fine. He has recently recovered from a mite infestation on his beak and feet. Non-transmissible to humans, but they can do some serious damage to a bird’s beak. They’re all gone now though, and he’s going to be just fine.
