Karate Kid

Ty loves karate. It is so cute seeing him in his class working so hard. He should be testing for his brown belt soon. I took this picture of him in class the other day. I love how intense he looks.

What a cold Halloween. Scott took Ty out and they got so wet from the rain. Ty and his cousins had a lot of fun.

Summer of 2010

* Summer was crazy this year. It was filled with Ty's baseball games, Youth conference, 4th year hike, and girls camp, Cub Scout camp, and book club. It was a fun summer, but I miss my pre-school kids and I am excited to start teaching again.
*Ty really had fun with baseball. His team improved so much this year. He made new friends and had a blast!
*Youth Conference was amazing. We went to Cove Fort and then Manti Pageant. Ty and I got to go along with Scott. It was a lot of fun to get to know the youth in our ward.
*My Niece Kenzie and I got to go on the 4th year hike this summer. We had a blast. We back packed it. It was beautiful at the hot springs and Kenzie and I had fun at the water falls. We didn't like the snakes that we ran into though.
*Girls camp was so much fun. I feel blessed that I got the be a leader. It stormed on us pretty hard but we stuck it out. I love all the girls. It was great to get to know them all.
*Day camp for the Cub Scouts is always fun. This year the boys got to do bb guns, bow and arrows, build a rocket and launch it, and more fun things. Tyler had a blast!
*Tyler really wanted to have a book club this summer. So we got together with our friends and planned it out. It has been a lot of fun and we have been able to read a lot of cool stories.
*So there is the condensed version of our summer.

I am so excited. I just got a new calling last Sunday and I'm back in the Primary Presidency. I love primary. I don't think that there is anywhere else that you can feel the spirit so strongly as you teach the children gospel principles, and the music is amazing! I still get to help with girls camp. I'm really glad because I've always wanted to work with the Y.W. Camp will be a blast. I'm just having a little bit of a hard time juggling things around right now. I know it will get easier as I get my schedule down. (And work with Scott's schedule).

Easter Surprise

Scott and I were talking last week and decided it was time for us to go on a family vacation. We haven't been on one for almost 5 years. We have been putting it off because we needed to save all our extra money for adoption. We were not sure where we were going to go. We thought of a few places and then we decided to go online and look at Disney Land. Once we got online that's where I wanted to go. I love Disney Land. We decided to not tell Tyler and surprise him. On Easter morning Ty woke up and did his usual Easter things, then we had him look in his Easter basket and there was a letter for him that said he needed to get ready for the day and go to the park for the rest of his gift. He get ready and we got in the car to go to the park. When we got to the park we gave him another card that told him that he was going to Disney Land. He didn't believe it at first. He finally believed us when we started driving to Disney Land. It was so good to get away as a family and have fun. Tyler loved all the rides. His favorite was California Screaming. We had the time of our lives!


We were lucky enough to go to the Saturday Afternoon session of conference. We had four tickets so Tyler wanted to bring his cousin Kaitlyn with him. I bought them both little notebooks and pencils so they could take notes on the speakers and write down their feelings. We all loved being there. It was awesome.
