Hi I've Missed you

Well, it has been over two months since I have blogged, and man I missed it. I love being able to write out my experiences, give advice, and review toys. 
I missed Toy Tuesdays most of all.


I thought I would give just a little update on where I've been. 

In December, I packed up all of my belongings and left the frozen tundra of Idaho and moved to Sunny Las Vegas. I started as the only child life specialist in the Emergency Department that they have had in over 7 years. This month I am gaining a coworker and in the coming months one more will join our team. This hospital knows how important Child Life is, and I love that!
I also turned the big 25!



I started the program on day one, not having one supply to a month later where now I have enough things to run a successful program.


I am so proud of myself, and my education and my experiences that have led me to here. 

I can't wait to show you more, and of course blog all about it!


Thanks for being so patient, and thanks Caroline for keeping up the blog while I was getting used to my new life! (If you don't have a Caroline in your life, I highly recommend you find one).  


Congratulations to all the students who were just offered a Child Life Internship! We are so proud of you! 

As always you can email us your questions about child life, or you can send us your child life story, we would love to post it to our blog!


Happy Child Life Month! Lots of blogs are coming your way! 


Love you guys! 

Sydney

How should I go about getting a child life practicum? It feels like everywhere I apply, I am not experienced enough in volunteering or old enough, but I want to be able to start my career as soon as I get out of college. Any ideas?
