Well, it has been way too long of a break, so I am going to try and sum up what we’ve been up to for the past months.
Sharon and I were enrolled in Dixie State College since last Fall. Sharon completed her Certificate of Visual Technologies, and I worked on my Bachelors of Computer Science, with an Emphasis on Visual Technologies. This resulted in us being in many of the same classes. That was a lot of fun because we got to help each other out with homework and remembering when things were due. Believe it or not, she helped me a lot! I am so proud of Sharon and all of the things she has learned and done this past year. She also started a photography business this year and has made amazing progress putting her portfolio together. You can see her site here: http://www.enchantedwindowphotography.com
I was reflecting just the other day about how much Sharon has changed since we were married last April. She had no interest in photography or computer things, and now she is a Photographer and has a Certificate in Visual Technologies! She even knows how to make Flash movies, Web Sites, and write programs in code! It boggles me how fast of a learner she is.
I would be remiss to not make mention of our 1 year anniversary. It is mind-boggling how fast time has been flying. It really doesn’t feel like a year has already passed. We are getting ready to move up to Provo at the end of this month, and we are both SOOOO excited to finally get our own place and start school up there. Sharon will be going to BYU to get her Masters in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). I will be going to Utah Valley University to try and finish my Bachelor’s in Computer Science. We are both very excited about this.
We are planning to go traveling in December to Australia to see Sharon’s sister, Ivy, graduate from her University in Adelaide. So we’ll be saving our pennies and dimes for that.
I was accepted to take part in Google’s Summer of Code 2010, and will be developing a module for Drupal 7’s new Commerce platform. I am really excited to be an ‘employee’ of Google, since it’s long been a dream of mine to work for them.
My business endeavors have been flourishing, and I am keeping busy every day with some new project. There really never is a dull moment (unless you consider programming dull, haha).
Kendall will be graduating from Hurricane High School this month. This means that all of the ‘kids’ will be done with High School! Amazing again how fast time flies. We will all be in Provo this Fall, because Tyler will be back from Mexico and attending BYU, along with Kendall and Chantelle and Sharon. So that should be fun.
Anyways, I will try and update this blog more often since I will be a bit more free this summer!
