I Can Do Anything!

I made this card for my daughter, Rachel. Thursday she starts a new job, what she calls "My Big Girl Job!" She graduated this past December with a degree in Business Management. When Rach turned 16, she had me take her to Bob Evans Restaurant to apply for a serving job. She has worked there for almost 7 years. Also, over 3 years ago she applied to Montgomery Inn Boathouse over looking the Ohio River. She was hired in as a hostess, while working on getting her experience(at Bob Evans) to become a server there. To serve at the boathouse, you need 4 years of serving experience. It's one of Cincinnati's Finest Restaurant.......all the Cincinnati Bengals eat there, all out of town sports teams, lots of celebrities such as our local- Nick Lachey, and the most famous person she has waited on, was President, George W. Bush! She was on the news and in the newspaper with the President!!! How many can say that??? After a 1 1/2 years they made her a server there. She has done so much already with her life, worked 2 part time jobs while going to school full time. This past month she applied to Bob Evans for a managers job and they hired her, being the youngest manager at 22.

She can't wait to start this new phase of her life. If your wondering, yes, she is still hanging on to her job at the Boathouse. She told them that she will be training for about 10 weeks and they are willing to work with her. She is such a hard worker. We had fun today shopping for new clothes for her new job. Rachel will be getting up at 4:00 A. M. to be there by 5:00!!! We're SO PROUD OF YOU, RACHEL! LOVE YA, Mom & Dad.

I know, I love this polka dot paper!
