Moving On

As many of you know Aaron has been taking class online with DeVry University since Oct of 06'. He has finally graducated with his Bachelors in Technical Management with focus on Hospitality. YEA!
We decided that if he wanted to continue to work in the Hotel industry he would need his Masters degree, so needless to say he is back in school. The good news is that his classes are all online and he is able to help out with Kingston and Dakota while he is at home.

While working at the Saint Paul Hotel it became apparent that his time with his family was getting pushed aside and work was becoming overbearing, which we decided it was time for him to resign and spend some good quality time at home with us, plus it helped to hurray up him finishing his degree.
In turn we were able to spend two wonderful weeks in Colorado in Januray, allowing Dakota some time to get to know his cousin Jake and his Grandma and Papa. Then came back home and waited for the arrival of Kingston River. During his time at home Aaron and Dakota become very good friends and Dakota is going to be very sad the day Aaron goes back to work, as will I.
I have loved having him home these last three months. As you are reading this you may be getting the sense that Aaron did in fact get a job and you are correct. He accepted an Assistant Restaurant Manager position with Oak Ridge a Dolce hotel and conference center in Chaska, MN. He will be taking his drug test on 3/31/08 and will start shortly there after. He is really excited because this location is not the city and is 15 minutes from home. It is also a worldwide company with many growing opportunities.
