On Friday I took my team hiking in the Superstition Mountains. I had so much fun and it really helped me to realize I need to enjoy all aspects of my job before its gone. (Yes, funding has become really volatile... again.)

My team is stellar! I got the rare opportunity of getting to hire and hand pick my whole team. Which has allowed me to avoid some of the issues I faced with my first team... when I was younger than them, had worked in the program less time than they had, and had to come in an re-train them on how to do their job.

These ladies I work with now are just so FUN. I feel honored to get to spend everyday with them and can't believe the changes they're helping people make in their lives. They do some hard work and they handle it all with class!

There's Danielle, Priscilla, Tara, & Bernadette. I still have one opening on my team... its been hard to find someone that can live up to these guys.

Did you do "WindCave" trail??? That is absolutely my FAVORITE TRAIL! Well, I guess that's at Usery Pass, not Superstitions. But oh well. I used to do that trail every SaturdaY! If. no WHEN I come to visit, I am so doing that trail agaiN!

That looks like a fun group. I am glad you had so much success when hiring them and forming a team. I have hiked a lot of places but I can't remember if I have been there. You guys (and what you stand for with these families) won't go down with out a fight. Hopefully you can help people understand just how bad this budget is needed. I know for you- it's more than just an income. It's a need for this community. I am glad there are people out there like your team doing so much for those in need.

Thanks April! It is definitely more than income to me. And it is fun to work with people that share my same passion

Hey Christy! Good to hear from you. I forget that just about no one from Keating ward has seen little Juniper. Thank you for the wonderful compliment you gave her (me). Hope you are doing well and your family too.
