Our Latest

March is parent-teacher conferences at the elementary school, and they usually cancel some school days, so I got to have Chloe at work with me one day and Morgan another. Chloe always looks forward to lunch at the Crossroads. 

I turned the big 46 on the 13th. Hard to keep track, time flies so fast. We had cake and ice cream for FHE and went to see Austin and Leah's new house, which they finally finished renovating and moved in to this week.



Mom and Dad took me to lunch at The Hickory for my birthday. It was fun to visit with them.

Chloe had her 5th grade patriotic program. All of the 5th graders in the district gathered at Skyline to sing. It was cute and entertaining and I always get a little choked up at those kinds of things. 


 My friend Paula loves all things Irish, so she was decked out for St. Patrick's Day and loaned me some little troll earrings, since I was green-less.

 And finally, we got grandbaby number three today. Leah and Austin had a little girl named Andy. Mom and baby are doing well and we are so happy for them.

Our Getaway

Every year I have these dreams of taking a nice long trip with Kory and each year it sort of slips away. So this year we settled for three days in Montana and northern Idaho.


Kory is the king of cleaning the windshield. He can get every last bug-speck off of that thing. Armed with our Gatorade, dill flavor sunflower seed (don't knock it until you've tried it), and my infinite playlist we headed north. We worried as the skies seemed to get smokier and smokier the further we got into Montana but it wasn't too bad where we stopped. We took the exit for Anaconda and headed to the Old Works golf course. Kory always raves about this course because it was designed by Jack Nicklaus and has black sand in the sand traps. It seems like a weird place for a high-quality golf course, but we think the mine next to it is owned by a British company that is somehow connected with the golf courses in England. Anyway, we hopped in a cart and did 18-holes. I was the cart driver.






After that we …

Spring Break

We had the kids for Spring Break this year, but unfortunately, Kory and I had to work. So we did a sort of staycation with the kids, making it as fun as possible and promising a trip to St. George during Kory's Spring Break. We finally had some nicer weather, so we enjoyed a walk around the Green Belt.








Chloe had her 11th birthday over the break, so Kory and I took her to dinner at Texas Roadhouse where she got ribs--her favorite. We hate to see the youngest get older. Kory keeps making her promise to stay just the age she is and live with us forever. :)

Phoebe brought the kids to Rexburg one day and we ate at Pizza Pie Cafe then did some bowling at Fat Cats. After that, we surprised Isaac and brought them all the Men's Choir Concert.





We had all of the kids who could make it come over to celebrate Chloe's birthday. Did some heavy, heavy hangover, had cake, and played basketball. Everyone always enjoys it when Ryker comes over.







Family Time

This may not have been the busiest week of my life, but it was definitely right up there. On Monday, I took Morgan with me to my parents' house and I finished scanning the pictures for the movie they showed at the viewing. I then drove up to Driggs to drop them off at the mortuary. On the way back, I decided to stop by the Teton Dam site for some dissertation inspiration. We then picked Kory up from a seminary meeting and headed home. The kids got to our house and a few of us went for a walk with Ryker on the greenbelt, but while we were out, a big storm blew up and cut the walk short. I came back and chatted for a bit with my friends Jody and Ken who were leaving a car at our house while they went camping (he works in Yellowstone, she was meeting him coming up from Utah).



On Tuesday, after the kids were done with chores, we went to the space exhibit at the Museum of Idaho. That night, I went to a Browning reunion with my parents and we had a nice visit with some relatives. After …
