See ya in two years!

Remember this guy with his mission call? Tomorrow he enters the MTC! He had his farewell on Sunday and did soo well. What a solid testimony. It was really powerful. He will be a wonderful missionary. The people in Pheonix are lucky to have him!

A little FORT, Hunter and Halle style

Believe it or not, this is actually a really sweet fort. Josh and I built it with darling Hunter and Halle Hawkins. They were the real architects here. Josh and I just stood back and let them do their thing. It brought back memories of building countless forts growing up! Who doesn't love making forts!? I can't wait to build tons of forts with my future kids. Josh will be all over it, too!

Little Sis

Marie Clarke. Most amazing sister ever. She was just called as Jordan High School's Seminary President for next year. She will be AWESOME! She is the perfect person for this position: totally solid, humble, responsible, and what a spiritual giant. (Not to mention, hilarious and drop dead gorgeous!) She has always been such a wonderful example to me, especially these last few years. I have learned so much from her. She will do a great job with this new calling.


Have you been here? It's my favorite! I always get the Summer Chicken salad, but I finally had the courage to branch out and try something new. I tried the Lobster Bisque soup and it was amazing. Yum. I highly recommend the soup, as well as just about anything else on their menu!

Jordan's 19th Birthday

We all went mini golfing for Jord's birthday last week. It was such a warm, beautiful evening.

Look at that form! Josh should have given me some pointers because I think I got the worst score out of the whole fam. Yikes. Mini golf has never been one of my strengths.

Jordan at his finest.

Probably the strangest event of the night was when a little baby bird fell out of its nest in the "castle" on the course. Marie was a little freaked out, as pictured. Jordan, however, had no problems picking it up with a tissue and scaling the castle to put it back in its nest. We got quite an audience because the bird was screaming bloody murder as Jordan was holding it. The bird was successful placed back in its nest and we were all able to sleep that night.

Logan + Soccer = Wow

Josh and I finally made it up to Sandy to see Logan play soccer this season. It was his final game. He did awesome, as expected. Seriously, his team is amazing...especially since these boys are 9 and 10 years old. They were undefeated, beating most teams soundly. If you want more details of their strategy, Logan (or my Dad!) would be more than happy to spend an hour or two going over the keys to success of this awesome little soccer team.

Midterms are over, Time for an Update!

Woohoo! I just finished my fourth midterm tonight. It went horribly, but I'm just so glad to have it over with. You know how that goes. Now I finally have a minute to update our suffering blog.

The last few weeks have been so busy, but things are finally settling down. Here's what we've been up to:

My youngest brother Logan had his final soccer game of the season, and Josh and I were finally able to make it up to Sandy to see him this season. He did awesome. Seriously, his team is amazing for little 9 and 10 year olds! They were undefeated, beating most teams soundly. If you want more details of their success, Logan (or my Dad!) will be more than happy to spend an hour talking about the keys to their success.

I know, I know...

I haven't posted anything interesting in quite a while, but don't give up on our blog. After I finish my FOUR MIDTERM EXAMS this week, I'll post some fun pictures (finally!) from the past week.

Hiking the Y

It's been such a great week! You know those weeks that just go so well...for no apparent reason? This week has definitely been one of those. Josh has been working full time for AtTask until he leaves for his internship, and I have started spring term at BYU. I have a really awesome New Testament class, a pretty awesome Marriage Enhancement class, and a not-so-awesome Physical Science class. It should be a really busy term, as I'm also working 25-30 hours as the Office Manager for Stadium Terrace Apartments. But it will be fine.

Highlights of the week:
-A little midweek date night to Barnes and Noble
-Josh's softball game, where his team blew out their opponent
-Coming from my evening class to find Josh making chocolate chip cookies!
-and the grand finale.....

Hiking the Y late last night. I'm a senior at BYU and I had never hiked it before. It was about time! It was actually a really fun hike. We went when it was totally dark and it was so pretty to look over the valley and see the lights. Hopefully we'll do it again soon.

p.s. I was soo good at taking pictures of every activity when we were engaged, but now I never carry a camera around. I've got to work on it!
