The last 6 months

A lot has happened in the last few months, since I blogged last:

My little brother got married. *tear* BUT we LOVE Becca.  She is so sweet and cute and perfect for Ty.  (Looks like I didn't get any pictures of the couple, but I will find some to post at a later date.)   

I graduated from college!  This was a big accomplishment, because it took me almost 6 years to complete.  There were some hurdles I have to jump over, but I finally did it.  

I finished my first year of teaching (in the previous post)!  That was the most exciting thing that happened, I think.

And now, we are in Seattle for Jeff's Boeing internship.  We are actually only here for about 2 more weeks, but it has been a great experience.  Those pictures will have to be posted another time, because they are mostly all on Jeff's new i-phone.  I'll post about Seattle in a separate post, as soon as I get those pics.

Life has been CRAZY since we came back to Utah. I started teaching 2nd grade in Springville and Jeff went back to BYU as well as started working for the LDS church. Since I know most people just like to see pictures, that's all the post I will bore you with!
The pictures below are of my classroom the first week, my favorite bulletin board (cause its all about the kids), the only picture I got from our trip to Jeff's brothers wedding (although that is a story all by itself), and the best note I have gotten all year from my students (because he is the hardest!), oh and my christmas present from my sweet husband (the willow tree nativity).

Jersey Shore

 We had a good time at the Jersey Shore this week with Jeff's parents, his brother, wife and kid.  We spent time at the beach, the pool and on the board walk.  Jeff and I had fun at the beach, but we decided that we are more of pool people.  The sand is everywhere!  And I don't really like being in the ocean... therefore we are pool people! 
 I love to look at Ferris wheels, but not to ride on them. 
 Logan, our nephew, is so funny!  He was throwing a fit at dinner this night, and as soon as Jeff pulled out the camera to take a picture of his tantrum, he smiled and posed for the camera.  It was so cute!  
 Little man could not sit still during dinner, so Jeff and I took him for a walk.  
 Jeff's brother and his family.  
Logan had a great time on the boardwalk!  He loved putting his feet up and enjoying his drink. So jealous!  It was HOT that night!

This summer, one thing that I wanted to do was going to Palmyra and see the Hill Cumorah pageant.  We were able to do that last weekend, and I was so happy.  This is the Sacred Grove... it was so peaceful and calm.    

James 1:5... the actual bible that Joseph Smith read. 

 The Smith house, where the angel Moroni appeared to Joseph... don't ask what that kid is doing by the house.  
Me at the pageant.. no one else would get in the picture with me.

 This is where we went last weekend!  Jean and Tim, (my in-laws) were sealed, and Jeff was sealed to them as well.  It was a great day and there was a wonderful spirit at the ceremony.  It was small, only the four of us, two witnesses and the sealer.  It was a day that Tim and Jeff have been waiting a long time for.
 The "newlyweds!"  haha

Ps- It was about 100 degrees outside!  Plus the humidity, it was nasty!

Fishing (the last week cont.)

Sorry this is not in chronological order, but I forgot about this little fishing trip...
Last weekend I had the opportunity to go fishing for the second time in my life.  The first time was when I was about 5 years old.  Jeff's dad loves to go fishing, so last Sunday evening, Jeff, my father-in-law and I went to the lake and went fishing.  I also spent a lot of time taking pictures.  My camera is not the best, but I love photography.  At some point I want a nice camera, but we are too poor for that right now!  So someday!

 Lake Shawnee... this is the lake that Jeff's parents live on.

 Some little kids came over and wanted to see the fish that was caught.  It was cute.

 The beach.

 The second fish that was caught.
 Yeah, I'm a fisher-woman!

  And that was our fishing experience.  Sorry there are so many pictures!
