A post about Katie

Ten things about Katie

1. She is just finishing up doing Wizard of Oz in a community theater. She played a crow, a poppy, and a citizen of Oz. It's been nearly 7 (7???) years since she and I did the same roles with PL Players, and she had heard about this opportunity and decided to audition. She has had some fun doing it and met some cool people.
2. She is moving to Provo in a few weeks...
3. ...because she's going to start at Utah Valley University in September...
4. ...which accepted all of her Normandale credits...
5. ...so she is a junior in college...
6. ...majoring in some kind of science.
7. To help finance her university venture, she started looking for jobs, but one found her! Through a contact at her current place of employment, she was told of a job opening as a peak time teller (basically a substitute available on certain days to go to any of several Provo area bank branches) and so she applied, and interviewed...
8. ...and she just found out today that she got the job!
9. She'll be coming back to MN for a Christmas-time visit...
10. ...so we'll have a full house during the holidays!

What a busy life for Katie! I'm sure she had a blast doing the Oz production. After going to Willy Wonka this week put on by the Chaska Valley Family Theatre I thought it could be fun to participate in one of those shows (shhh...don't tell your brother though).

And congrats to Katie for starting up school as a JUNIOR and for also landing what sounds like an awesome job for her. Good luck in all you do, Katie!

I'm so happy for Katie. It's great that UVU accepted all of her credits and it is awesome that she is a Jr. Keep up the good work Katie.
Glad she is close to Morgan too.

You should make a Grecian Urn about this. So many good things for Katie. REALLY glad about the job. And I'm so happy she did OZ. She can get into all that with UVU, also. I think this is just the thing she needs right now - all this new stuff. I know Morgan is excited to have her closer by.

AND we look forward to seeing her in October!! We'll be out that way October 5-9 for BYU's homecoming. I'll keep her posted on what we are doing and see if she wants a game ticket with us.
