To get you caught up on some of the news:
In April, John received his Technical Writing certificate from UCF, and JR’s college robotics team placed 2nd worldwide — and it was his team’s first-ever competition!
In May, we had a terrific summer vacation, going to both Washington, DC and New York City. During their vacation, John and Christina celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary.
Christina started her new job in June. She had been a surgery scheduler at Florida Hospital, but she transferred to another department. She’s now an Administrative Specialist in the transplant department.
August rolled around, and Chawney finished up her internship at Sea World, while Christina resumed taking classes toward her nursing degree. She plans to finish in 2015.
In October, John was offered and accepted a new position as Business Development Analyst at Sodexo. His employer, JKR Advertising, made him a counter-offer to stay … which he agreed to. He is now Director of Media Relations at JKR and is very happy with the way things turned out.
The excitement wasn’t over. In December, Chawney graduated from UCF with a psychology degree, and plans to go to graduate school sometime to pursue an HR-related degree. Also, John and Chawney’s Alma Mater, UCF, got their first-ever BCS bowl invitation after an 11-1 season. Nice!
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2: 8-11, KJV)
From the Weis family, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a 2014 filled with happiness!
