First 3 weeks

1weekYeah, I know, I’m bad.  First 3 weeks in the MBA and all I have to show is a sticker I found in the Sheepdog competition.  Yes… that’s the only thing I have to show.

These past few weeks have been so great, I am humbled by the people I meet.  I feel that I’m not as good as many in many areas.  I’ve also learned that I’m very good at some areas and that this is the place I need to be.  In this ride there has been 1 person that has clearly made my life easier, and that is my wife Debora.  I’m so thankful that I have her in my life.  It would be so hard to come back from school and have to deal with problems at home; instead I come to a home that is happy and many days she has more things to tell me than I have to tell her.  Nicole is the other light that shines in my life.  There is nothing more gratifying that being met with a little girl yelling “PA PA PA PA PA.”  I love you Nicole, and Happy Birthday yesterday.

Now back to school.  I am enrolled in 7 courses to make a total of 17.5 credit hours.  I could not do it, if not for the help of my teammates.  We have a new name for our team, KTO.  KTO rules!  They really are a great team to work with.  We have divided our work so that each teammate is in charge of a course, and then we teach each other what’s important.

Finally, I’m happy to be member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  This safety net that surround me and my family is priceless.  The members in the community have been so giving, and I thank them.

BTW here is a better picture.
