I love new beginnings.
And man alive, we sure have had a bunch of them around these parts lately!
There have sure been a lot of first days of school this year! There was the first day of online school for the “little girls” (HERE), and the first day of in-person school (HERE), and today they start their first day of in-person school with everyone at the same time (for the last two weeks it has just been a hybrid schedule with only half of the school each two days per week). Crossing our fingers it all goes well!
But there was also a 1st day for Abby at her school (no picture because Max isn’t as good as she is at taking pictures…), and Max and Carson both had their first days the same day (back on August 31st). Max was in the beautiful mountains of Provo…some classes in person but most online, and Carson was sitting in his new kitchen in Miami, at his make-shift counter desk since they couldn’t find a desk for the life of them. (I guess everyone in Miami was looking for the same thing with so much online school going on because IKEA, Target and Walmart were all clean-out of any semblance of tables or desks, isn’t that crazy?)
(He, like Max, has mostly online classes except for his labs.)
Here these two are, living their best newly-married lives 😉
Another new beginning with Grace and all her missionary work…first day of the home MTC when we were still trying to set up her working space:
Lots more about how that’s going this week, but look at that glowing face…that’s how it’s looked pretty much since she started last week.
And as long as we’re talking about “firsts” and new beginnings, Elle is sure trying to find her first post-college job in the big-wide graphic design world. She got so much good experience under her belt during her internship with a big graphic design firm last summer, and worked for a graphic design company in Hawaii the last couple years she was there, and now she’s trying to find a good fit going forward.
In the meantime she’s been doing some freelance graphic design and it is so fun to see the logos and ideas she comes up with.
Here’s a screenshot of her webpage which I think it pretty awesome:
And you can check it out HERE.
Hit her up with any advice or leads or work needed!
And there we have it: a whole slew of firsts.
