Back Home Again!
Today was Sunday--I have been gone to Utah for about 10 days. We had a roommates reunion with some of my BYU roommates, and it was awesome. They are awesome people who are tremendous examples in my life. I want to be like the Savior, Jesus Christ, and they are such wonderful examples of how to really do that in this life. How thankful I am for all of them. I should post pictures, but I haven't downloaded any of them--but they are the BEST!! Then I went to spend most of the rest of the time with my daughter, Emily, who moved from her townhouse to a beautiful home in Farmington, Utah. It is also close to horses, and the next time I visit, we are going to see those horses. I love horses, and I think it's pretty cool that she lives so close to them. I loved being with her son, SJ, who looks so much like Emily did, and is such a cute little boy. He is busy as can be, and so very smart--he learns all kinds of fun tricks. It has made me think back on being a mother, and I don't think I taught my kids all the fun tricks and funny things to say like Emily and Michael have. I think my kids do better at parenting than I did...but hopefully I did better than I remember. It was a busy week, with packing and watching SJ (grandson) getting into as much as he could. But Michael and Emily were very organized about their preparation, and it was pretty impressive to see how ready they were for this big transistion. They'll do great in their new place, and I can keep dreaming and hoping that maybe someday they'll live closer to us. (well, I can dream, can't I?) I also got to see my daughter, Katie. She came down to help us with the move, and then she drove me up to Logan, where I could meet my "grand pets," a dog and a cat. That was so much fun. She is so easy to talk to, and we are just such good friends. I loved being with her and with her wonderful husband, Cody. I am so thankful for my family! Today I taught Sunday School at Church. It was so much fun. I love to teach. I love to have people participate, and I learn so much from their comments and their insights. I was just substituting, but still it was way fun!! I love to teach about the scriptures because I learn so much in preparing. Anyway, that's an update from here. It is hot here, but it is home, and I am thankful to be back home. Good days to you all!
