Jason or Jackson?

Jason just recently got this picture (thank you Aunt Kristy) and posted it as his facebook picture. Lots of people thought it was Jackson at first, but this is Jason at 3 months old. Jackson definitely resembles his daddy. Jackson has his daddy's nose, lips (my brother calls them Angelina Jolie lips), and just as much hair as he did too. We are waiting to see what color eyes Jackson will have..sometimes they look blue/green and other times brown.

Jackson is 2 months in these pics. Jason is the one in the middle.

Jackson Kekoa

Alright, we gotta catch up. Here are some photos of Jackson starting from when he was first born to now. Jackson is already 2 months old. He weighs 12 lbs and is 23 3/4 in. He smiles a lot and talks to us by cooing.
Jason and I love him to death!
Jackson is our precious little boy.

Job Opportunity

On December 17th of this year I will be joining millions of recent graduates in this country. As I approach the final chapter in my undergraduate education the fear of entering the job market has started burning in my heart. NPR is doing a series that follows recent graduates in their search for jobs during these tough economic times. This series has been going on for over a year now and there are still many who graduated in 2009 that are now competing with the recent grads for jobs.
Listening to this series has given me a pretty negative attitude towards graduating. I actually thought to myself, "maybe I can extend my graduation date to June 2011 so I have more time to find a job."
What makes my job search difficult is the fact that I will only work for 8 months because I start graduate school in September 2011.
The closer I got to graduation the more nervous I started to get. I know people who have been unemployed in California for over 2 years and California was our planned destination following my graduation.

Plans have changed, earlier this month I was offered a job here at BYU-Hawaii designing and teaching online History courses. We are now staying until June 1st and I will continue designing courses from California during the summer until I enter grad school in the fall.
I feel extremely blessed to have a job opportunity during these tough economic times. It looks like our adventures in Hawaii will continue.
