College Bound

Well folks, I've heard it all now. Our total UofU fan teenager was accepted to BYU. The acceptance came like the day after the deadline. Wow! Now the big decisions start. He will still audition on the trumpet at the U and the Y and we'll see what happens. (Oh yeah, he was accepted to the U too)lbh

Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year! At least the 1st graders thought so on Friday, Feb. 1st. Heather played the drums while walking the parade route which lasted a magnificient ten minutes. One of the worst drawbacks of working is that Mom couldn't be there to watch, but Dad sure was since his job is so lay back and easy and non stressful and he can work from home all the time and... Okay I'm done. Below is Heather with Melia and Sarah who not only live by her but are also in her class. Awesome! lbh

Tribute to President Hinckley

President Hinckley has been on my thoughts constantly this past week. I am so thankful that we have prophets on the earth and that we have been able to sit at President Hinckley's feet and be taught by him for many years. I want you all to know that I love him, I honor him, and I am so grateful for his testimony he has shared with us. What an experience to go to his viewing, thanks to Ann who encouraged it. I checked the kids out of school on a whim and rode trax to the Conference Center to pay our respects. Little did we know we would end up waiting one hour outside in line and then another three hours inside before we got to see him. Heather asked while we were sitting inside the center if President Hinckley would have his glasses on. (He did) She was in sincere thought about him. As it was our turn to walk by his casket, I can only describe it as the Spirit in all His magnitude bore witness of who President Hinckley was. My kids unanimously agreed that the four hours of waiting was all worth the ten seconds of spiritual bliss we felt honoring our prophet. I especially want my family to know that I know he was a prophet and that I love him. lbh


Just so everyone knows, I am adding a disclaimer to our posts. Kent was just as excited to get a blog going and to post on it and so as soon as I set it all up, he took over the computer and wrote most of the blogs. Just so we can differentiate who is writing which blog (since sometimes I feel like I need to edit his), I will put my initials after my entries. Love you honey and keep posting. lbh
