The past couple of months has been very busy at home and at work so I have fallen behind a bit on my blogging. The big event was the graduation of my oldest child, Kristyna, from Burnsville High School. It was our first grad party and a lot had to happen to make that go.
Before that party, we had our annual camping trip with friends. During that same period I spoke at SQL Saturday in Orange County where my wife joined me. She helped out at SQL Saturday and we were able to visit my daughter’s college choice – Biola University. I followed up that by organizing an internal technical conference at Magenic, Tech Summit. I was only able to attend a part of that weekend’s events as I wrapped up the weekend at Boy Scout camp.
All in all, my family took precedence followed by increased work responsibilities. Up next is my Sabbatical which will be six weeks off at the end of the summer. I will try to get a few of the updates in my queue loaded up here then more silence.
My advice to everyone, enjoy your family. They will matter more than work and contributions here.
Enjoy some pics from my months off…
