Update

Well, a lot has been going on over the last little while and I have not been doing a very good job of keeping my blog updated but I am going to try and do better...now that I have a new job. Yep, I got a new job! I am now a stay at home mom! My last day of teaching was last Friday, the 29th of May. It was a day of many mixed emotions. I will miss a lot of things about teaching...most of the kids, the other teachers and people that I worked with, the actual teaching part, keeping busy and feeling like I was doing some good (some of the time). I will NOT miss discipline, management, grading papers, meetings, and some of those darling students who helped to challenge me and helped me grow so much :) Another new chapter of my life is about to open.
Sorry, no pictures to go with this part :(
On May 25th, Nate and I enjoyed our 2nd Anniversary by going to Park City. The drive there alone was worth it!! It was so beautiful and green, I loved it! We went to a fun shopping center and spent several hours there. We got some fun stuff. Then we went to the Olympic Park and that was pretty cool. We opted out of paying $60.00 for the bob sled rid and just took our picture in one instead.We also did a little skiing while we were there!

This is me on a black diamond!! I thought this was so funny and laughed so hard! Hopefully it will make one of you laugh, or at least smile!

We also went to a movie and a yummy dinner at Mimi's Cafe! It was a wonderful day! And an even more wonderful 2 years! I love being married to Nate! He is such a good husband and my very best friend!

Well, one more update. A few months ago, the Bishop of our ward called me and Nate in to his office. We knew the Young Men's President was moving and since Nate has been working with the 12 and 13 year old boys we knew he was likely to be getting a new calling soon. He talked to both of us individually and then together. He then gave me the shock of my life by asking me to be the new Young Women's president! The thought never crossed my mind that we were there for me to get a new calling! I know this was a calling from Heavenly Father because I don't think the Bishop alone would just think of me for this calling! I am younger than any of the counselors or advisers that work with me! It has been just over a month now that I have been in and I LOVE it! I am not so good at all the little things, the paper work, the meeting, etc. But I am so impressed with the girls and I love being around them! They amaze me! I love being able to teach the lessons on a regular basis too! I think that is one of my only true passions, teaching the Gospel. I truly love the Gospel and teaching it gives me such a natural high!! What a blessing it is to be able to serve others and our Heavenly Father.

Okay, sorry that was a long update. Thanks if you read they whole thing! Although I wouldn't blame you if you didn't!

Good to hear from ya, Tam! Guess what--I just got called to be the YW president too! Although mine was not much of a surprise because I was the 1st counselor and our pres. just moved. I'm pretty nervous for all the responsibility but so excited. I love our girls. Have fun and hopefully I'll see ya around one of these days :)
