Bear Brew Amigos

After work yesterday a bunch of full-time went out to the Bear Brew to just decompress a bit before the week of staff training. For those of you who don’t know, I work at a program called Upward Bound that works with low-income, first-generation high school students prepping for college. I was in the program myself as a youngster and now I will be gearing up for my 7th summer as a staff member. It’s a terrific program, and takes a great deal of energy, so we just sat on the deck and had some good company. Faith brought Noah, Gene, and Eli, and I got to play bounce the baby with Eli as he drooled on my face. It was gross, but also he was being a super cutie. Noah was talking trains most of the time, and Mullen and I fretting at each other like we normally do. Overall, it was a great time with great people 🙂 … although I mostly just took photos of the baby!!
