Yippee!!

Chris survived his first semester of the MBA program at BYU and I couldn’t be more proud… although a bit jealous that he now spends his days skiing.

He has literally worked his tail off this last semester. His daily schedule has gone something like this: wake up at 5:00 a.m., study ‘til 7:00, drive to Provo for studying/class until 6:00 p.m., return home, eat, hit the books again until 11:00, sleep…do it all over again.

He is loving his program and we are excited about the opportunities that are opening up for him. He received an offer to intern with Kellogg (like the cereal) in Battle Creek, Michigan this summer as a brand manager for Frosted Flakes. We’re not sure if he is going to take the offer yet. He went to Michigan to be “wined and dined” and to tour the corporate headquarters. He was very impressed with Kellogg...

...and very unimpressed with Michigan. We’ll see…

One of my first thoughts when he got the offer was:

“If he ends up working for them someday will I have to sever my relationship with General Mills cereals, as in no more Capn’ Crunch and Lucky Charms?( favorites from my childhood that I don’t actually buy- but I like knowing that I could do so without being disloyal.)

His answer was “yes, you'd have to end that relationship.”

No internship is worth giving up Lucky Charms. Tell Chris to take the internship at 7-11 instead. That way he could bring home 1 free slurpee at the end of his shift.
