Tom was hired with "Ball Corporation" last spring and is enjoying his new position in Finance. I am currently working on obtaining my Colorado Teaching License so that I can start substitute teaching in our local elementary schools. In the meantime, I am busy as C0-Leader of Ashlyn's Girl Scout troop, working in the classroom, serving on our school PTO board, etc...life is full and we have been happy!
After my parents passed away, we started "The Appletree Scholarship Fund" in their memory. To date, we have awarded 6 $500 scholarships to worthy educators in Tehama County who are committed to enriching their students academic experiences through innovative teaching methods. We plan to continue to awarding the scholarships yearly in the fall. I think my parents would have been pleased to see these smiling students! BIG thanks to all of you who have contributed to our fund! Your generosity has made so much possible!
I look forward to catching up on your blogs and hearing the latest in your lives! I have missed you all, and hope that the new year is off to a wonderful start! Here's to good health, happiness, and much love in 2011!
