New Years Are For New Beginnings...Changes...New Challenges...Renewing Our Faith and Hope
I love new years. New years are a chance for new beginnings, for changes, for new challenges, for renewing our faith and hope.
This year is already starting off with changes. Personally, a big change in my life is going from working part-time to working full-time. This will be a change. I will be finishing up a grant at Kellogg High School, and beginning a new grant at Kellogg Middle School with the federal grant program I work with, Gear Up. But I am looking forward to the challenge.
Another change is PKR becoming the president of the board of directors of the community theater we are involved with, the Sixth Street Theater. This brings on a new challenge for him as well, and I am also on the board, and I am the board's secretary. This will be a new aspect of theater life for us.
The Princess has decided to return to college next fall and pursue a degree in Communications with a minor in Business. She has applied to return to NIC, and will take some classes here in Kellogg and online. She is welcoming a change in her life, and also welcoming the new challenge.
Z2 is a senior this year, and has been accepted to the College of Idaho in Caldwell. She is looking forward to attending this college, and starting a new chapter in her life. And, as with all college experiences, it will be a challenge.
Kiki Aru is a sophomore this year. She is hoping to take Drivers Ed and get her license. That is the challenge she is most looking forward to this year. And she really wants here sisters to move on so she can have the house to herself with Mom and Dad!!
I am looking forward to the new year, and looking forward to seeing how all our changes and challenges play out. I have evaluated my priorities, and set some goals that hopefully will make this a very purposeful year ahead.
Happy New Year one and all!!
