Close Encounters of the Deer Kind

Well, for the first time in my life, I had a car accident and at the same instance I had my first encounter with a deer!! Needless to say, this was NOT fun! I was driving my husbands jeep to lunch Sunday after church, around 1pm with my aunt and uncle in the back seat. We were on our way to meet my parents for lunch at the lake. Well, as the title of this post describes, we were hit in the side by TWO deer!!! I can honestly say that I have never been so scared! I managed to get the jeep safely out of the road and keep it under control. However, in this process, the drivers window (my window) was shattered as well as the back cargo window on my side along with the mutilation of the drivers rear view window!!! Thankfully that was the extent of the major damage! No one was injured (praise God!) and the jeep was not totaled!

These are pictures taken right after the accident! As you can was bad, but could have been so much worse!!! Thankfully the driver window has safe glass and didn't shatter on my face!!! Needless to say, We will be vaccuuming out glass for a good while!!

Pictures from Korea

Jamie has learned from me about taking pictures, and here are a few of them that he has taken.
This is Jamie and some of the members of Gladiators! How cool! The next one is Jamie and some of his platoon atop Hill 303 after reenlisting one of his soldiers.
As you can see, Jamie is doing well!!

Max Won 1st Place!!!

This past Saturday, Max and I attended the 2nd annual Bark in the Park. It was hosted by my church. There were about 50 people there with their pups. There were many different categories to enter your dog in to win...some were Cutest dog, Oldest, Youngest, Saddest Eyes, Best Trick, Pet Owner Look-alike, Best Costume, Largest, and Smallest. Well Max won the Best Trick contest!!! I was so proud of him! :) I didn't know if he would "perform" while still on the leash but he did great! It was a beautiful day, and we had a lot of fun!
This is Max "posing" with his you can tell by his ears, he was not happy about the string around his neck. But he is proud of his ribbon! :)

New Development with the Burton's

Well, as most of you know, Jamie and I have been going back and forth on me moving to Korea with him. We were waiting to hear about a possible job for me here in Texas. Well, the final verdict came out today, and yours truly is now an employee of the City of Killeen Parks and Recreation Department as the Recreation Center Supervisor!!! Jamie and I are very excited, and I cannot wait to begin working...which should be next week!!
Texas is growing on me, and I have found a new church that I love, and am very excited about starting this new stage with my career!! Thank you all for the love and support!!!
Update on Jamie: He is doing just fine! He is really busy, which is to be expected in a potential war situation. But he likes it, and is doing well!
