Keeping Ya Posted

I volunteer at a crisis nursery center for my social work class. Don't be scared by the word "crisis". I've been volunteering for a little over a month, and we've never had a crisis case. It's just a safe environment for kids that are going through the foster care system or family tragedies. It's a lot of fun. I absolutely love it.
This last week, I was watching this little boy play with a dollhouse. There was an elevator that moved up and down with a touch of the button. You could tell he was deciphering it with his little boy mind. I went up to him and asked, "How does that work?" He turned to me and very seriously said, "Because I said so."
It made me laugh out loud. He heard that answer a lot, I guess.

This week for iTV, AJ and I had this very detailed plan. It involved our President, Derick reading a book entitled "How to be a Superhero in 5 easy steps" and proceeding to do those five easy steps. They were:
1. Choose Name - He chose Mr. Power.
2. Find Costume - He wore two capes (thanks Kristi!). One was blue and long, the other was small and red with a mask too small for his head. Also a shirt with Mario on it that said "Power Up!".
3. Destroy Arch Nemesis - This one is my favorite. We had a girl tied to a pillar with rope, struggling to get free. Mr. Power had a guy in a black mask, my incredible friend Casey, in a headlock.
4. Rescue Pretty Girl - he untied her from the pillar and she loved him. Then he raised his arm in a nice, strong power-to-the-people pose.
And... to tie this all into Institute:
5. Go to the Dance

It was so much. I hope it's funny. I think I may have got way to caught up in my own weird sense of humor. Haha. Oh well! I know I will really like it!

Alejandra and I found a place to live. I can't tell you how excited I am to move in.... I'm very excited! It's a really nice condo and we have our own tree! YAY for foliage!

Anything else?? Yeah... I found the best career ever. That's right. I have...made...a....final... decision???? ugh..... maybe.
A Child Life Specialist seems right down my alley. Let me know what you think.

Lots of Love! - Linz
