Michelle will enter Azuza Pacific University in September. But for now, both went out seeking work, walking right in and asking the boss... and both landed jobs on the same day a week or two ago.
Michelle is working at “PacSun,” (Pacific Sunwear of California) in the mall. She gets a discount on clothes, and then is encouraged to wear them and kind of models them as she waits on customers. Sorry, guys! The mannequin is not for sale. Eat your heart out!
When Tim and I dropped by on a recent afternoon the place was swarming with customers and they must have had at least 3 girls and a couple of guys working on the floor. Michelle's a people person and enjoys her work.
Evan is working at O’Brien’s Grocery Store near home as a bag boy and everything else. He loves it. And I think he may probably out-work most others. His mother recently caught him rounding up grocery carts in the parking lot... after working hours... ha. He does everything with enthusiasm.
Last Friday and Saturday, while my sons, their Uncle Ron and Uncle Mike were still visiting, both Michelle and Evan happened to have time off. Only Evan had to start work at 4 PM on Saturday.
So after our day of hiking on Friday (see previous blog) we all took off for another adventure on Saturday.
Would you believe we drove up to Lake New Melones where we had reserved a powerful ski-boat for 7 people?! We got there before 10 AM and were soon on the lake with a tube to ride. What a blast! The water temperature was delightful.
Yes, even I rode the tube! Tim let up a bit on the speed for me. I had to encourage him to power up!
The fun is when you do circles and figure eights with the boat forcing the tube to whiplash into incredible speeds crossing the wake and tossing you into the air while you hang on with all your might.
Ron, who tends to challenge earth's law of gravity, tried to stand up on the tube, which of course, is impossible.
Digital cameras are great, but they too often don't click the instant you tell them to.
The empty tube is airborne.
We circled around to give him another chance. It is very hard to climb onto the tube from the water. I think the finger in the air means "I surrender!"
Here is Evan "looking cool" under the umbrella.
A little later his Mom took him back to town to go to work, while we finished the day relaxing.
God is good! All the time!
