1. Last weekend, I chaperoned at Austin's Central Manitoba Youth Choir Camp.
It's Austin's second year in the choir -- they meet for two weekends to rehearse together
and then tour for five days.
It's a wonderful experience and I am blown away by how talented these teens are!
2. It was Sage's birthday on Monday.
We had Party Potato Soup for supper -- Sage's favourite.
She named it Party Potato Soup when she was little, because
she misheard me when I called it Hearty Potato Soup.

4. So, my new job is going really well!
There's lots to learn, but I'm finding I'm really enjoying all the aspects of my job.

I went along on an installation on Tuesday so I could see how everything works together

For the seminar, we were given these super cool badges
that we could personalize and use as ice-breakers for conversations.
I was disappointed though when no one asked me about any of my topics. ;)
5. Tonight, Sage and I are going to spend the night at the Winkler Bible Camp
for their annual Mother/Daughter retreat.
We attended last year and enjoyed it so much, we decided to make it a yearly tradition.
I'm looking forward to spending some one on one time with my best girl. :)
Thanks for looking!
