A stern talking to...

Ok, so it wasn't really a stern talking to but two weeks ago we went to our new ward for the first time! It is so great! I am so excited to rollup my sleeves and get involved! Anyway, I digress. After sacrament, one of my favorite people in the whole world spoke with us about how excited she was to have us in the ward and then she said she reads my blog, and I haven't updated it in awhile! it goes!

This has been a spectacularly crazy summer! We have had the oppurtunity to do so much in such a short period of time and the lords hand has been there every step of the way, we have been blessed with gifts before we even realized that we were in need of the blessings!

Last week we got to spend time with our family at camp! It was so fun and reminded me so much of the great family I was blessed with! Then Sunday we got to speak, and our topic was temples. It was such a blessing to be able to spend the time preparing and studing about temples!

Then this week my parents took off to take my baby brother to BYU! Don't get me wrong I am so excited for him but he is my baby brother, I am going to miss him!

We are staying with my grandma this week and that has been fun, a little difficult, but fun! She was diagnosed with dimentia, and it has progressivly gotten worse, and at times it is funny and I laugh at having the same conversation 500 times but sometimes it makes me sad, and I just want to cry! She is an angel and I am so grateful for the time that I get to spend with her now!

Well that pretty much gets you up to date! And...I am going to be better!

I promise!

We're Moving!

So, we got a letter in the mail last week and we have to be out of our house by the end of the month! The Owner's nephew is moving in and this wouldn't be so bad, if we didn't have plans the last two weeks of the month! But we found a great duplex, it is absolutely beautiful! We signed the lease today and we get the keys on Tuesday!
