Fall is in the air finally, here in Arizona. Cammie and Noah have moved in for a couple of months until they can find a suitable home in the east bay area of Northern California. Ben has already moved there and is working at a prestigious trauma hospital. Cammie and I had fun yesterday at a crafting day at her church. We had a nice lunch and made some cute items. Carl has moved out with some friends but drops by to watch a few football games with Scott now and then. I made it through the first quarter parent-teacher conferences for my fourth graders. Needless to say I am paddling as fast as I can to keep my head above water! Thank goodness for technology that allows us to see and talk with Rebecca, Joshua, Stefani, and Logan.

It really has been long since I wrote this time. I am now teaching fourth grade at a brand new school, Adams Traditional Academy. I love it. I have 16 wonderful kids, and only drive a few blocks to the school. I'd walk if it ever cooled off to less than 75 degrees. Right now we are still having 100+ every stinking day!!!
I now have three beautiful grandsons. Stefani had little Logan on August 4th. We drove the 13 hours to see them over Labor Day. It was so neat to be with all three girls and their little ones.
All is well, I have no complaints.

It has been forever since I last wrote. I have now taught first grade for half a year, graduated from ASU in December, and made a trip to Colorado and Wyoming. All is well with us here. Looks like our "winter" is over. It was 83 degrees today. Time to pack away the sweatshirts and jackets. I wore my flip flops for the first time today so my toes hurt tonight.
Cammie, Noah, and I hiked on Thunderbird Mtn. this morning and had a picnic before it got to hot!! Time to get in better shape.

Looking forward to a great week. We have half days on Wed. and Thurs. I'll be holding 26 parent teacher conferences!!!!!!

Teaching begins...

Well here is the long awaited start to my teaching career. I began last Monday. The class was finally organized and set up with the help of Cammie, Duncan, and Scott. I am very pleased with it. The children will come on Monday the 11th of August.
I am anxious and quite scared to tell the truth!!

Dream Come True in progress...

Half a century come and gone....

Well, I finally hit the big 50. Looking back over the last 50 years I have so much to be thankful for. I had a tremendous childhood in Montana and have shared close to 30 years with the love of my life. I am the mother to five beautiful children who now have children of their own. I can boast about my 2 awesome grandsons, Noah and Joshua. I am only a few months away from graduating from Arizona State University as an elementary school teacher. And to boot I am enjoying good health. Life is Good!!!
Our big news here is that the Prophet announced that a new Phoenix Temple will be built in literally our backyard. The temple will be in our stake and only a few miles from our home. The completion date is about 3 years. We are anxiously looking forward to being involved in its creation and of course in the blessing of attendance to follow.
Enjoy the summer where ever you are and remember it is hotter here!!! (and its a DRY HEAT) ha!ha!
