As Thanksgiving is over, we look forward to the end of the semester and the start of Christmas break.  Students are finishing up their studies and it is cool to see the sense of accomplishment they are starting to feel as their first college semester has nearly come to an end.

Shannon also is wrapping up her first semester of teaching at the local elementary school.  It is fun when she comes home and recalls the innocent but humorous comments that her little ones make.  I believe it was Bill Cosby who had the show “Kids say the Darndest Things” and that still holds true today.

Apart from work, Shannon and I have been doing well.  Shannon has joined a group of coworkers who p90x after work, and I continue to play and referee hockey in the evenings.  We have been involved with a local church plant in the area and find that we enjoy living here more and more.

The biggest news for us is at the end of February, we are planning on moving out of our apartment and will be renting a three bedroom home that is 2 blocks from the school Shannon works at (currently Shannon has a ½ hour commute one way to work).  Our friends own the home and are moving out to one of the villages, so they asked us if we would like to rent from them.   We are looking forward to being closer to Shannon’s job, but are not looking forward to packing all of our stuff up again (we have done this every 8 months since getting married)!  

Thanks for reading…more to come later…:)
