2015 Ruppert Banquet

Collins and I attended the 2015 Ruppert Banquet last night. This was Collins first year attending (5th one) as a Branch Manager. It's a little different now! He had to speak in front of 450 people on Thursday. (The thing he has dreaded most since taking the job) and Friday teach a class. Then Friday night Collins has to give an Impact Award at this banquet. It was a lot of firsts for Collins but like most things he was very methodical about preparing for it and from the feedback from his peers did a wonderful job. If there was ever a company to work for it is Ruppert. They are at the cutting edge with technology (they have a app developed by their own IT guys), they truly believe in giving back to community, and the way they care for their employees is beyond exceptional (oh, they cut grass nicely too!!). I had a good long talk with the owner of the company, Craig Ruppert, he knew my name and asked me about the move, kids and even really wanted to know how I was adjusting. Also, gave me a much needed pep talk.

I am so proud of Collins and loves hearing from his peers how much they love working with him. It was a huge sacrifice when Collins took this job 4 yrs ago but Collins was absolutely right that his move to Ruppert was one of the best decisions he ever made. We now have 5 more days until our next big adventure!! Ruppert is sending Collins and I along with 32 other couples to go to Atlantis for 4 days.

Alexander Graham Bell Report

Lawson had a big Famous Scientist Report due today. She did a great job and I really admire her work ethic. We did have to have some lengthy in-depth conversations (tears) about plagiarism but we worked through it. She was so proud of herself and almost giddy as she put the finishing touches on her board. I asked her what she was most proud of and she said "this is my own words and work and it looks great." Good job, L-bean!!! We are so proud of you!

Cailyn's 5th Birthday

Happy Birthday to the sweetest 5yr old in the world!!!! This girl just brightens up a room with her happy demeanor! So blessed to call her my baby girl!!!

I have to add just a little more... This is a child who asks for nothing!!! She is happy with anything!! She plays well by herself and is most content with little to nothing. If she does
ask for something impromptu at the store and I say no. No is the answer and she moves on. She doesn't whine or have a tantrum. I don't know what the future holds and it may not be he same for the years to come but I have say "thank you" for these later years!!! It had been nothing but a joy!!!!

For her birthday we met up with the family to celebrate (fun, fun), took her to Target to pick out a gift and then out for Mexican! She said it was the best day EVER! But honestly every day is the best day ever!!! She loves life and everyday is a gift.
