May Update

After much demand we have decided to post an update. School is out (at least for the summer) and it is great! We found out recently that I (Nate) have been accepted to the Masters of Information Systems Management program (MISM), which is great news. I will begin this fall semester and I will be graduating April 2008. I know that seems like a long ways away but it's not bad considering I'll have a masters degree. Allison and I feel very blessed and thankful that I was accepted.

Now that school is out I'm working full-time doing an "internship" with in the corporate office. For the past 3 years I have been in the call center where I have been a sales agent, supervisor, and systems analyst. I am now at the corporate office working with the Business Intelligence Team where I'll be working with the company's data warehouse and stuff. I'm very excited and it is a great opportunity.

Allison is doing great. She has been taking some aerobic classes (aka "kick boxing") and she signed us up for Y-Be-Fit. Y-Be-Fit is a fitness program offered to students and staff of BYU. We have to religiously record our food consumption and work on an exercise program. We had our 2nd appointment today where we did various physical tests such as strength, flexibility, % body fat, heart rate, etc... and next week we'll get a 55 page book about how to improve and set some goals. After a few months we'll go back and see if we have improved. Needless to say I have a lot of work cut out for me but it should be fun.

Allison is also enjoying her new calling as the Relief Society Secretary in our ward. She has been very busy and diligent setting up visits, and keeping organized. She is doing a great job!

We're looking forward to rest of the summer and spending some time will family and friends. We're planning on going up to Park City for Memorial Day where we'll go mountain biking and horseback riding and stay there Monday night. It will be our main vacation for the summer and it will be our 2nd year anniversary party since our actual anniversary fell on the week of finals.

We hope you all are doing well and make sure to keep in touch!!!

Nate & Allison
