so i recently went to orlando (winter park) with my parents and nephew for my cousin's high school graduation! the trip was totally unexpected (i knew i was going a week before) and was really fun! my nephew is 5 years old now and getting so big!! he says the funniest things. also, we shared a room the whole week...shared a trundle bed and i gave him baby tickles to get him to go to sleep, it was a really sweet time. here are some photos!

finally employed!

thank you, Jesus!! i feel like i've been waiting for this moment for two years! don't get me wrong, i loved school...the learning, the flexible schedule, the internship experiences and so on. but i am so thankful to have a job and be a "professional" now! yesterday was my first day as an LMSW at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children! woot woot! this hospital is so neat and i am excited about the children and families i will be helping out there! this hospital will be 90 years old next year and no child or family has ever had to pay a bill for any of the services or surgeries performed! kind of hard to believe...especially when many of the customized prosthetic limbs for the kiddos cost thousands and thousands of dollars. anyways, i will keep you updated on this journey, but just wanted to praise God for a job, his provision, and new learning experiences! below is a really great video of the types of patients that are served at scottish rite...the little girl is SO cute!
