May, 2021 Wrap-up Post

May has been quite a good month for me. I made a big career move and took up part-time teaching at the University where I work. A few classes in and I love it. For the first time in a long time, I feel like I might have found something that I’d want to do for a long time. I finally feel like I am making a meaningful contribution.

My daughter, Rylee, is all grown! She is 17 months now. She is fast on her feet and even faster with her hands. ‘What is in your mouth?’ is the new popular question in our house as Rylee grabs stuff and puts them in her mouth and take off running. I can’t wait for this phase to end as it is so nerve wrecking.
