well, I will start by saying that I actually made it down to Austin to see my Bro, Sis, and little, baby Frederik Lightning Welker. Maybe you know that the TX state sea shell is the "lightning Welk" if you did you could see that if you added an "er" then you would have Frederik. (just think about it!) I love him, by the way! He is maybe the most amazing thing I have ever seen and I hope you will think he is as cute as I do. Anyway, I was lucky enough to be on the "drag" in Austin right before a UT home game. Holy cow, I have never seen so much orange. Josh and I were both wearing green and we were walking against the crowd. I guess you could say we looked like outcasts!
Durring the week I was home after Austin, I got a promotion at work. (to me it is a promotion.) I have moved from the Communications department, to the (get this) Interim Full Time Assistant to the Youth Director. In "The Office" terms, I am Dwight and Andrew is Michael Scott. WE work together and we are having a blast. I love these students and I am so excited about what we, Andrew and I, as a team can do. YEAH!! anyway, it is just an interim position and I will be interviewing for the full time job. So I trained someone else for my job, had youth group on Sunday, and then flew straight out of town on Monday morning.
We spent a week in Panama City Beach (also known as my favorite place in the country) doing nothing but laying around and eating fresh seafood. It was wonderfull. I have all sorts of images from everything (except the job, cause that would be weird) and will be posting them up in the next few days. Love to all of you!
