"Diversity in the Workplace"

Recently the Museum of Vancouver put on a contest to have photos submitted from the workplace. The theme - diversity.

As a Registered Child and Youth Care Worker, I don't really have a huge commute to work, boardroom discussions or many people that I work with as there's usually 2 of us max, but I do work for many children - a diverse part of our society, kids that one day could play a significant role in our communities. The kids I work for are troubled, neglected, abused... and not just by their parents but some of them choose to trouble, neglect and abuse themselves, these three categories don't see race, religion, age or sex - these kids are not only a diverse part of our communities because they are children but diverse because they are all different races, sexes, religions and ages. Here are a few I submitted to the museum...

If I win this contest and they ask me for more photo's I have a million ideas I can't wait to share :)

Christmas with the Sanderson's

Well this Christmas was amazingly crazy as per usual in this household. We did our early morning presents from Santa followed by brunch with my dad, sister and my husbands siblings at our house, THEN dinner at my Aunt's house. Needless to say these kids were spoiled!! Not quite rotten.. but spoiled none the less!! It's so nice to be able to squeeze everyone in on one day. It's tiring for sure, but family and being together is what I love most about the holidays!! PLUS, I have a few friends out there that have to spread Christmas over 5 days.. I am not up for that challenge!

We hope you all had the best times during the holidays and wish you all the best in 2012!
