We got some really good news today. Sara got a full time job at a pre-school and will start on Aug. 28. She can be certified to be a teacher in a year.

Joseph, Sara and I went to the Jordan Temple a couple of weeks ago and here are some pictures from then.

So Far This Year

This has been a busy year and as most of you know, Joseph married Sara Michelle Thompson in the Salt Lake Temple on June 27. All of my children and 10 of the grandchildren were here, so it was a wonderful day. The reception was really nice with lots of good food, good company and dancing.
Sara and Joseph will be living with me until they can get a place of their own which will probably be after the holidays.
Starting Sunday, we will be going to a new ward as our ward boundaries have changed. This was a shock to all of us, but knew it had to happen sometime soon. I will really miss my Primary kids. Just started this blog will add more as time goes on. Just have to figure out how to post pictures. Thanks to Amber Nelson for showing me how to get this started.
