It has been a while...


We are sorry it has taken so long to write an update. We have been very busy over the past few months. We'll write an update for each of us so you know what's been going on.

School has started and so has the recruiting season. Just about every night for the past 3 weeks I have been going to reruiting events, information sessions, or interviews. It is nice knowing that there are jobs out in the world but it has been very busy. I have officially started the Masters program this semester and there has been a lot of reading and group work. It has been busy but fun so far.

Work has been going well, I have stayed part-time with MyFamily.com in the corporate office in the Business Intelligence Team. I was also just hired as a TA for Isys 580 where I'll be listed as a co-instructor. It's a class that teaches business grad students (MBA, MISM, MACC, & MPA) advanced knowledge in web development, MS Excel, M S Access, Powerpoint, Accounting Software, etc. It's a self-taught class so I don't know how much "instructing" I'll really be doing but I will have some lab hours where students can come in and get help. Mostly I'll be doing grading.

Allison has been very busy with church, classes, and work. She has just started a book binding class which is very interesting. She just finished binding her first book this weekend and it looks great. She has also been diligently going to her Aerobic classes which she loves. We figure Aerobics is her new hobby. Work has been hectic with school starting up again but she has successfully mastered ever aspect of her job. She is very good at what she does. She especially enjoys the monthly "Fun Walks" that BYU sponsors during her lunch hour. All the faculty and staff are invited to participate where they walk for several miles and win prizes and get "non-fat" cookies to eat. This last month Allison won a stadium chair! Hopefully we'll put that to good use.

Anyways, we hope everyone is doing well and don't forget to leave some comments!

Nate & Allison
