We took Summer to St. George last week so that she could get some experiences on her own. We were able to get her into the Raintree Apartments, which is a 1/2 a block from Dixie State College. She has the neatest roommates! They are both from Utah and are in their second year of college. The girl she rooms with is a returned missionary, her name is Emily. They have so much in common, Summer is so excited to be in this apartment. She has a swimming pool right outside her door, and they have a washer and dryer in the apt. The door is a keyless entry, so no lost keys to worry about. They are very strict in their policies. No smoking, drinking, inappropriate books or magazines and no boys overnight for any reason. The landlords are really nice and have really helped Summer in this transition. My brother and sister's families have really helped her out too. Thanks guys for all that you have helped her with, you are the best!!!!
We went to the LDS employement center and got a few places to apply for a job. The first one we went to was a floral store. She told them she has no experience in this field, but they had her put a bouquet together and after doing that they gave her the job!! She started that day, part-time for now. She is going to look for another part-time job this week. She is hoping to get into the Phlebotomy course in August. I will keep you updated on this new adventure for her and for us. Dave has had a hard time letting her go, but knows this is such a great opportunity for her.
