Bonjour! As most of you know, I have been trying very hard to get myself an internship for this Summer. What you might not know is the economy is kind of rough right now-I don't know if ya heard. Fortunately a great company has decided to take a chance on me. Schneider National is a transportation/Logistics firm based out in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and they have recruited me as an operations intern for this Summer. For those unfamiliar with Schneider, you might recognize them by their bright orange trucks driving down the highway. The internship is at their corporate headquarters in Wisconsin, so I'll be headed out east at the beginning of June. Unfortunately, Chelsea has work and school commitments so she will not be able to come out for the entire 10 weeks I am there, but we've planned multiple trips for her to come out. It'll be rough but worth the great experience. We are hoping that Wells Fargo will hire me back when I return in August, but no guarantee. So even with all these plans, there is still some uncertainty, but we are pumped!
Because the internship starts in June, Chelsea and I have decided to take a trip in May! We are going to FRANCE! I served my LDS mission there from 2004 to 2006 and am anxious to go back and visit some of my friends. Chelsea is beyond stoked because it has always been a dream to visit Paris. Airfares are sooooooo cheap right now, especially to France. Delta has a direct connect from Salt Lake to Paris, but our flight has an eight hour layover in NYC. This will give us enough time to go into the city, see one thing, then come back! We are going to meet up with my sister Lindsay when we get there. In France I have already set up a few accomodations for us to stay with people I know. We will spend two weeks there running around! It'll be a blast!!
Those are our upcoming plans. Now I just have to finish this semester out! School seems a whole lot longer now that we have such great things to look forward to!
