Welcome to the MoritzOnline.net blog!
The place where all five of us will regularly contribute to keep our family and friends informed of happenings in our lives.
Be sure to check back regularly.
Okay, we've decided that Lloyd and I just like a lot of stress in our lives. I am now a full-time student at Warner Southern College. My first class began Sunday (however I'm stilll waiting for my books so I can start my course) and my first two assignments are due on Saturday! All that in addition to running my business, working full-time and trying to keep my family organized. Somebody stop me! Naw, I'm just kidding. For a very long time I have wanted to complete my degree but with raising a family I just didn't have the energy to commit to it. Now that Andrew has graduated from High School I decided it was time. I had thought all along I'd like to complete it before I turn 50 (is it possible that's only 4 years away???). Now, through perseverance and persistence, I was able to enroll in Warner Southern's online School of Professional Studies program. I will graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Management. All things working perfectly, I should be finished in 2 years. I am so excited! It's just one of those, "I started this thing and I'm going to see it through to completion!" Special thanks has to go to Melanie Simmet (Gardner College's Registrar) and former Gardner President, John Howard. John was the commencement speaker at WSC this spring and took time to re-visit the agreement between the two colleges. Without that, I would have had to start from scratch, receiving no credit for my 2 1/2 years at Gardner. So, you ask, what can you do to help? I would appreciate your prayers. Along with the move to Washington, this is not going to be an easy row to hoe. But I know I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me! God Bless you all!
So I am not a big blog fan so I don't write on here all that often. But I figured maybe someone was interested in what was happening in my life. so here goes...
I went on a trip to Arizona for a week last week to visit some friends. 2 of my friends from Hanford and I drove the down there and we had a blast. We went shooting in the desert, which was probably my favorite part of the trip. I love guns now. Another highlight of the trip was going to see a major league baseball game in phoenix. I love baseball too. all in all it was a great trip.
Ever since I quit working at savemart, I started growing a beard. I really like it. My mom hates it. I just have to keep it until Luke gets back. I told him I would let him see it.
Next week Is going to be really exciting for me. I will be registering for school on the 23rd. Then the next day I will be moving in to my new housing in Fresno. I am living in an on-campus house with 3 other guys. I am really looking forward to getting out of the house and being on my own. But I will be coming home most weekends for laundry and some real food. Then school starts for me on the 28th.
That is pretty much whats going on with me.
So, my summer is almost over. I've got less than a week before I come back to California and leave this world of Canada behind at least for awhile.
Nothing too exciting, other than a couple of small trips, and visiting with people before I leave.
Ryan Jones and I will be driving down to Moscow, Idaho (where he is attending University) next weekend, and I will be flying back to California from Spokane, Washington.
I move into my new dorm on the 22nd of August, so that should be fun. I'll probably have something interesting to say by then.
So for the 138 years that they've been recording weather in the San Joaquin valley - July 2006 is the hottest July on record!
Just think, we got to live through it! Maybe I'll make a T-Shirt to sell..... "I survived the July 2006 record heat wave" .... It doesn't have a good ring, maybe I'll reconsider.
