went to Jake's choir concert last night,
his solo was awesome!
even with genetics from his great dad....(smile), he has perfect pitch!!!

End of year recitals

Katelyn had her recital last Saturday - her cousin and littlest sister really got into the "Snow Queen" ballet!!

on Monday, Brooke danced six dances at the Browning Center on the Weber State Campus - even though we had a fire alarm scare and had to wait in rainy weather for the " all clear"  to begin the recital, it was worth it.  Brooke had injured her wrist in dress rehearsal, but no one could tell, she was great!

Many games and practices have been cancelled due to our "Seattle like weather" ..............hoping for summer to begin soon!

My first YW Missionary

One of my old Laurel's from YW is preparing to enter the MTC in July!!!  She will be serving at Winter's Quarters, Nebraska Omaha mission-----------I just may have to take a historical trip out there next year for a hug.  This young woman is exceptional!  She played soccer, Lacrosse and cross country during her high school.  She was beautiful, hardly ever wore much makeup, that athletic glow always shown through!

She would welcome the little Beehives in with so much love and tenderness~She came to camp as an assistant for two years after she graduated and did High Adventure.  She introduced me to Brian Regan's humor~~thanks for that!!!

Her insights into the scriptures during lessons was profound for someone so young.   She has been attending Utah State the last three years and anyone that can brave winters there comes from tough stock!

She is naturally a little shy but always speaks up if asked something about the gospel or her standards.  her Testimony was always, "that it's just so much easier to obey~~yet she never judged others harshly" - just a smart, pretty, confidant young woman who loves the Lord.  I was the Teacher but learned so much from her and am so proud to call her friend.  Good Luck Cindy on your mission~you will be awesome!
