Senior Year Ahead

Rachel turned 16 at the end of May and has not slowed down.  She got her permit, has been driving all over Lancaster County, and applied several places for a part time job.

This week she got hired at one of our favorite fast food places to eat - Chick-Fil-A!

It's quite the process.  Open interviews - short, fill out a quick form, they give you a preliminary interview.  Next, fill out an application online that includes a 12 page survey. (personality type)  Then an interview with the owner, and finally the call to say, "We'd like to offer you a position."  

She had orientation yesterday, and will have safety training later this week.

She's excited.

This is going to be a big year for her.  She is in her senior year of high school, she'll get her driver's license, she has a job.

We are experiencing all those feelings you have as your kids grow up.  We are happy, sad, proud, excited.  She's a delightful young woman.

Is she going to graduate from high school an entire year early? Wow! Congrats to her on the new job. I hear that they are a good company to work for. I wish that we had one in state.

Congratulations on Rachel's accomplishments! I understand the mixed feelings I went through it with my daughters and now my oldest Grandson is a senior and will be going away to college next year, I am going through those feelings again, so proud of him and sad that he has grown up so fast!

Congratulations to Rachel!! Chick-fil-A is a great place to work! She has a big year in store. So many changes, but it's all a part of growing up, isn't it? Bittersweet for us mamas, but so right.

They were smart to hire her! She had her first day and enjoyed it. Said it went by quickly.



  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent Saturday, doing things around the house, and then we swam. Kyle and Sarah left after that...
