This past weekend was the 2nd Family Day long weekend here and so we were able to have 3 days off - a wonderful break for both Vic and I. It was a busy weekend for us - we went to Fort Langley to have lunch and walked some of the trails with Chloe; Sunday was church day (and the dreaded trip to Costco) and we had our Worship Team over on Monday night so it was a day of food prep.
So in between all the excursions out, we watched the Olympic highlights for the ones we got medals for (Men's and Women's Moguls, 1500-m Men's Speed Skating) online. It's kind of weird not to be able to watch it live but what with the time difference in Sochi but it was great to watch our athletes really shine.
Things at my work have reached their peak; I've handed in the first of my projects and it's going through a review right now. The final product needs to be submitted by Friday but I am hoping to hand it in earlier than that so that I don't have to think about it anymore. Then the client reviews it and has until the end of the month to comment or it is assumed approved. Then my project here is officially done!
Not really sure where they'll put me next - there's lots of opportunities in the company so I'm pretty excited about what is coming up next.
Vic is still at his work but is definitely looking at other employment; he also didn't get his tuition vouchers approved anymore so his school has been put on hold (his company was subsidizing it). The good news is that he is definitely still interested in finishing his degree. This past week, he had an appointment with Trinity Western University (a Christian university) to talk to an advisor about finishing his degree there. I tagged along just to hear what they had to say and I was pretty stoked for him when they outlined how their system works. On top of that, there are some spiritual components that he will have to fulfill and he seemed pretty interested in those classes as well. It is pretty pricey as it's a private educational institute and he won't be eligible for student loans but we're pretty committed to making sure he gets a good education so we're praying for some financial blessings to come our way (and employment stability for him!). He is looking at the Adult Degree Completion Program which is geared towards adults working full-time - basically, instead of a semester system, class is delivered in an accelerated, 6 week intensive program that allows to you fulfill degree requirements within two years (depending on the number of credits that can be transferred in). If all goes well and his work situation stabilizes, he aims to start school for the April intake. Very exciting :)
