Good Guy Gets a Break for 2 Hours

I know it has been a while since I have posted anything. I have been taking 16 credits this fall. Classes have included Physics and another Math class. My family is quite excited for me to be done with math. I may be complaining a lot and possibly loudly.

Bart was released from the Bishopric last week. It has been such a treat to watch him serve. He has always been so willing to let me steal the show. He served with Dr. Mark Firth as Bishop and Spencer Parkinson as the other counselor. Bart has loved every opportunity he has had. He came home and roamed around the house for two whole hours. Today he was sustained as the new 1st counselor in the Young Men's Presidency. He will be great and Josh will remind him when he is not :).

My guy is the cute one on the right.

First Day of School Blues

OK, I am back in school after my very long break, NOT. I had myself ready to go, backpack loaded, notebooks labeled and pencils sharpened. My first class was math and I started this semester with a can do attitude. Then ... it rained and not just a little summer shower, it rained a lot and it is still raining. You know your in trouble when you come home to have a hot shower and the HOT is just warm and you are soaked through your jacket, shirt and bra. I hope this is not a sign for the upcoming semester. Blues skies ahead, right?!

Dead Tree Branches GONE

What do you get when you combine an eager friend with 3 chain saws and extended ladder and years of over grown trees. I would let you see but a daughter whom shall not be named (Jessica) took my cute red camera on a cruise. I will tell you, you get 3 piles, mini-hills filled with branches. The best part is seeing the blue sky, the worst seeing all of ground that needs attention. I hope to prove my dilemena as soon as the girls come home from their cruise. Lucky for Bart he did not die, but I'm sure he wants to kill me.

I made it!

Hello Blog World, I am not dead. My brain is tired and my back-pack never weighed more than when I was trudging to the van on a hot summer afternoon. That's right I went to summer school. When I was a girl, summer school was for the students who did not do well during the school year, or for those who sloughed a lot. For the first time in my life I went to summer school, and paid for it. The positives: one more semester closer to graduation and relaxed professors. The negatives: very fast and furious pace,and my yard looks HORRIBLE!!! I have a little break before Fall starts. The good news is I was accepted into my program, that is, the education program. I start my levels in the Spring. Josh starts school in less than 10 days and will be starting his junior year. I love this boy, he is so kind to me. I hope to get things a little under control before Fall starts, but life happens so you never know. Hayden has been on his mission for almost 5 months and my girls are on a cruise. (I am not jealous!)

Graduated Girl!!!

This girl of mine has graduated from the University of Utah and she is only 22! She graduated with a degree in Economics with a minor Business

Adrienne has always had a love of vacuum's, so she is extremely pleased to receive a Dyson as one of her graduation gifts.

Jessica insisted that Adrienne do the traditional cap toss and Adrienne usually minds what her sister tells her to do.

I love this girl and I am very proud of her!!!

Beautiful Flowers Beautiful Day

I enjoyed my break from the normal routine with my girl Adrienne. We went to Thanksgiving Point and enjoyed the day away.

Back to the school work, but the best thing that had been said to me lately is from my mom, "Get your homework done or I will have to ground you!" OK, I said and giggled a little while doing my matrix problems.
