Going to the Temple . . . .

Today is a very special day . . .
Dylan will be going to the Temple to recieve his Endowments

I am so thrilled to share this special day with him . . .

We have him home for 14 more weeks until he goes to serve the people of Peru for 2 years.

I think one of the greatest blessings you can receive as a parent is to hear from priesthood leaders what an amazing young man your son is and that he is well prepapred to serve a mission and that he will truly be an amazing missionary and that he will truly bless the peole in which he serves.

What better way can you think to spend two years than by blessing the lives of others.

I am so very thankful for the gospel in my life and all the many blessings we have recieved.

Saturday . . .

Three more math classes left . . . wooooo hooooo (until summer school begins.) I know, crazy isn't it. But I am bound and determined to finish my college degree. But at a little bit slower rate than this past semseter. This has been crazy. But ya know "I didn't know" I really didn't know what it all intailed and so with each new thing in life we learn and grow and that is what I have done this semester. Proud to say I am working my tail off and getting almost all A's. I have learned alot in many areas. One of the main things I have learned is to keep going with my math and just focus on math until it is done.  So that is what I am doing. With all degrees you need to go to atleast 142 or 150. I have found a teacher that I totally "get" his teaching style and so I need to just keep going.

As for now I need to go and start a load of wash before I head to "saturday school".

Friday Night and All is Well . . . .

Well, here it is Friday night at 11:37 pm and I am blog hopping (getting caught up on happenings with everyone) and enjoying a quiet night at HOME !!! Dylan went with some friends to California for the weekend. Don and Coleton are on a campout. Logan is fast asleep and Karleigh is enjoying a movie on the big screen.


I really LOVE Fridays . . .  becuase I don't have ANY classes on Friday's (one smart choice I made as an adult returning to school)

I can't even tell you how much i LOVE being at home !!!!!

Making a list . . . checking it twice

This month we need to . . . .
  • Mission Call Acceptance Letter Sent (of course) DONE
  • passport and visa application sent to church headquarters  DONE
  • Appoitments for Shots - there's alot - HEP A Series, Typhoid Fever, Yellow Fever, so on and so on. Don't want my boy getting sick so we will make sure he get's them all.
  • Patriarchial Blessing
  • Temple Endowments
He will probably kill me when he finds out I uploaded his visa photo. The photographer would not let him smile. Why do some places let you smile for passport/visa photos and some don't ?  But it is a memory right. And I think you can tell by looking at the photo it signifies a very memorable time in his life. Just look at the tan line on his face. He has been able to enjoy some pretty amazing skiing this ski season. Almost every other weekend and it had now come to an end. I am so glad he had such a fun winter, becuase when he comes home from his mission it is back to school fulltime.

Trying to get hime to work on his piano skills. He plays by ear amazing. I love listening to him play - music to my ears. And I think he will bless the lives of many if he would learn to play a handful of hymns. We will see if moms encouragement works.
