Grad studies

Nothing like taking a 23 year break from university to feel refreshed and ready to get back into the swing!

Mrs. Jones has been accepted into the School of Leadership Studies at Royal Roads University, beginning in January. Royal Roads specializes in meeting the advanced education needs of working professionals. Mostly distance and partly on-campus, the program is very unique in that there is plenty of collaborative work required - and students come from all over the world, so I envision time zone issues. But, I'm extremely excited to get started. Finally!

And also...

We couldn't stop, so we added some cedars and cut in some steps around the new retaining wall.
