Fun at the cabin
Anyway, we did spend a lot of time at the cabin this summer. It was wonderful and we had beautiful weather each time we were there. Well, except for the tornado but that will come later. Above is Aliya and my niece, Heather (who incidentally told us last night that she is expecting their second baby...YEA!!). Aliya loves to ride backward and get whipped around and usually doesn't fall off. We had a great summer with Aliya as it's always good for her to keep busy. Seems to help her to stay positive:)
Blake graduated from the U of M in May. We were so proud that day! After much searching, he has a full time job here locally.
This summer Aliya got a job at Burger King. Since she doesn't have her drivers license yet, she was often forced to ride her bike the 4 miles there and back. She enjoys earning her own money and has learned she doesn't want to make this her career:) The interviewer told me after the interview that Aliya was the most impressive person she interviewed for the job. She answered her questions correctly. For example: "What would you do if someone complained that they received the wrong order?" She answered, "I would apologize and make it right." Apparently, few answered like this. Scary, huh?
When she got the job, she'd never eaten at a Burger King. She dislikes hamburgers and hates fries. So when she first worked the drive thru, she said, "Welcome to King Burger!" Oops! Better learn where you're working, girl!
So this is the first installment of getting caught up on posting summer pics. More to come!
