Awards Assembly

Nathan and I have just endured our first awards assembly as parents!

It was actually pretty rough because I have been asleep for two days after some rough nights of severe bone pain with fevers and chills.  I was so glad Sarah was here to help, still, as she leaves next week for a different job she got closer to her fiancé.  But we were there to be supportive, and so proud of our first graders becoming second graders!

Kirk got the award for citizenship, for being such a sweet kid and so good and such a helper.  He is a comfort to me, when some of the other kids are so hard in other ways.  He has overcome so much! We were delighted to see him so proud of himself!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
