HAS IT BEEN 3 WEEKS???
Well, the pictures have finally been developed from our trip down The Mighty Provo River 3 weeks ago!!! I'm amazed at how well they turned out with that little disposable camera.
This is Kyle with Cyle and Jerry getting ready to go into the river. Unfortunately within a few minutes, Kyle's tube popped and he had to swim to catch us. (Poor kid was absolutely freezing)
We had a great time--sure wish Brent could have been there with us, but he had to work. At one point, I thought Daniel and I were gonners. Scott who was handling the steering (or should I say, was supposed to tell us where to go) wasn't paying attention and all of the sudden we were in the bushes--REALLY IN THE BUSHES. Scott had to yell DUCK. Fortunately, Daniel and I both ducked otherwise we would have had branches in our faces--and it would have been UGLY.
Speaking of Daniel, he just received his mission call to the Georgia Macon Mission. We are so excited for him. He reports the day after Heidi's birthday. (I realize I haven't written too much about him. He is a wonderful young man--such a sweetie. It's obvious that he and Heidi truly care fo reach other. He seems to fit right into the family.
Here's a picture of Kyle, Scott, and Allan.
I don't want to put this as a sidenote because it is very important to me. A few days ago, Nancyface awarded me this very sparkly award. I love things that sparkle--which must be why I love Mrs. Face.
I notice that she passed it on to some of my favorite bloggers. I think passing on awards is one of the hardest things to do--because there are so many deserving bloggers out there. For that very reason, I'm going to say, it's yours. If you are here reading this, grab the award because you deserve it.
Sidenote #1: I do my presentation about Seminary today for our Inservice Lesson--I'm doing a Power Point Presentation on The Top Ten Things I Wished I Had Known When I Started Teaching Seminary. Sure hope it comes together.
Sidenote #2: Wish I could post the picture that Heidi took of her with her cute little "First Grade" class. She looks so cute and it is so fun to see her as the teacher. Makes her mama proud ; )
