Life has been a bit of a whirlwind for the last little bit…and in a good way.
Scott finished up his Winter semester at BYU and soon after began a Spring class, which he is finishing up as I speak. It’s been a tough class, but his big paper is due on Monday and I couldn’t be happier. Scott has such a talent for writing and it’s a blessing that he’s a perfectionist when it comes to writing. He always gets the grade that he works hour and hours for.
All that school work is also working to his benefit as he has the wonderful experience of working with a good family friend who is a lawyer. Scott is learning a lot more than he ever expected and has basically become a paralegal…Way to go Babe!!! He is also working with a Title Insurance company his brother-in-law and the lawyer have started. Hard to believe that the real work world is becoming a daily reality in our home.
My sweet Grandmother left this life and passed onto the next and was reunited with my Grandpa after many years of being apart. It was a sad day, but a happy one as well. The knowledge of knowing that Families are Forever and we will be reunited with our families is such a comfort. The gospel of Jesus Christ blesses our lives in so many ways, but in times of sorrow and trials, it is what becomes more important. I long for the day to be reunited with all my family and friends again in the presence of our Heavenly Father.
Through all the ups and downs, we are continually making memories and especially grateful for the days we get to spend together…even though they may be but a few hours every night.
Scott got his “Three-peat” and won the Rugby National Championships with the BYU Rugby team for the 3rd year in a row. His family came out and so did mine as we watched the exciting game.
I’ve been busy working and getting ready to move to teach 2nd grade. Yep…I’m smart enough that I get to move to 2nd grade with my 1st graders. Haha. Just kidding. My Principal asked that I move to the 2nd grade team and although it has been an adjustment, I’m anxious for the year that awaits.
During my 3-week off track time my family went on our traditional vacation and visited Disneyland. Scott hadn’t been since he was 8 or so (he doesn’t remember the exact year) and we sure threw him into the ringer with the busy schedule we keep on to get a fill of everything.
All in all, I tried to capture these last few months and have now experimented with a little video making…let’s hope that it gives you all a feel of how great our lives are going.
