1. Guess who got his first job?
Austin has been applying for jobs since May.
He had a couple of interviews last week (finally!), but the one place
called to say he wasn't chosen to go to the next round
(it's fun how they're making getting a job sound like a game show)
& he hadn't heard back from the other job yet.
Then, on Sunday, we went out for lunch to the Morden Motor Inn
and he asked if they were hiring.
He left his name and number and returned within a half an hour with his resume.
They called on Wednesday to schedule an interview with him at 4pm.
He called me at 4:10 to tell me that they'd offered him the job!
He's going to be a dishwasher, with the possibility of learning
how to cook in the near future!
I'm so excited for him!
I've been praying for a job for him so much --
& I'm so thankful that God has answered my prayers!
2. Jonah had a great week at camp last week.
I was so excited to see him (& I think he'd missed me, too!)
I was so happy to hear that he'd tried lots of new things throughout the week.
And watching him sing with all of the kids at their wind-up made me cry
(which of course made him tease me, but oh well.....)
3. We've enjoyed some fun things this past week....
I took the kids to see the Minions movie at the theatre on Saturday,
followed by supper at Charlie B's.
We've been strawberry picking three times this week
and to the beach every day for Sage's swimming lessons.
I love summer!
4. I made a fun purchase this week:
I had enough credit at Pretty Pink Posh from when I designed for them
to get this set of Zig Clean Colour Markers!
I can't wait for them to arrive!
5. And lastly, I have a card to share for the new challenge
I was totally inspired by this fabulous card by Amy Sheffer:
I love how she used the Blue Skies Cover Plate with the Petite Places images --
which seemed fitting, as it was one of her cards with the lighthouses
last month that encouraged me to buy this cover plate!
Here's my card:
I used some aqua mist cardstock as my base.
I had fun stamping the images from Petite Places: Sweet Shoppe, as
well as the tree from City Scene.
I did some ink blending for my grass & street, and stamped the "sweet" from
PP: Sweet Shoppe and the "birthday wishes" from KIS: Belated Birthday.
Some baker's twine finishes it off.
Thanks for looking!
