Morgan's first day and she could hardly wait to go to school. Her teacher is Mrs Cruz and when I picked her up after school, the first thing she said was, "my teacher is kinda wierd."
Wish us luck!

Swim lessons

So it took all summer but we finally got our turn for swim lessons at Jan Lambs Swim School.

They both did great and Anson found out that he does so much better with goggles. He had a rough start but ended up lovin it. I'm so proud of both of them.

2nd grade

Anson was very excited to start 2nd grade in a new school. NO uniforms! He has got a great teacher and even a friend from across the street is in his class. The first thing he said to me when I picked him up was "wicked fun mom!" Good thing I know what that means.

Costa Rica

I have had the rare opportunity to see people from my mission whom I taught, are active and have even gone through the temple. I have had the opportunity twice. The Abarca family have come up to visit Utah again and when they come they bring me my favorite salsa and cook me my favorite food that I miss and crave so much. These people are the best of the best and I love them like my own.

Cecillia, my favorite Tica.

Splash park

We found a fun new place (thanks Jess) to play in the water. Highland splash park. The kids loved it and it was free. We took our friends the Browns with us.


I was blessed with a visit from a great long time friend. Lynne and I went to college together then got called to Costa Rica on our missions. She was 3 months ahead of me then her last month we got to be comps. We came home and she moved to Utah and we worked at the same place for several years after that. She got married first then moved away. She is now in Illinois and her visits are few and far between but when she does come to Utah we have a good time reminiscing as we have ALOT of history together. She also grew up with Aaron so we are connected in many ways. Thanks for coming Skinny, it is always great to see you. I love you.
