As an active mom and grandma, I have a great interest in many things in this world. Religion, politics, technology, friends, nature, travel, reading, photography, and most of all my wonderful family.

Cara is dating a really nice guy from Missouri. They make a cute couple. My mom said I need to post some pictures on my blog so family can see them. So here goes. First I will put in a video of them jumping on the trampoline. He can bounce Cara pretty high! The first pictures are some they took on their trip to Runestone State Park in Oklahoma, which is about 20 minutes from our house.
I can't believe it's been so long since I posted anything. I last posted in August and here it is October. Getting back to school is a busy time. I am especially busy at school this year. I have 6 distance learning classes that I supervise and 2 hours of yearbook students. Yearbook is very time consuming, but I have a great staff this year. They all want to work and turn out a great yearbook. I just wish we had more money to work with. But I predict another really great yearbook. Today is Matt's 16 month mark, so time continues to march on by till he will be home again. At the top of this post are a couple of pictures he sent me that I really love. He is still in Livramento and loving it there. He is teaching some wonderful people and taking great joy in seeing their lives change. Ryan and Sarah are expecting a baby. It's due May 30th. Michelle and Ethan are also expecting a baby on June 22nd, which we think will be Matt's release date. Nice timing Michelle. But we are so excited to have 2 new members of the family on the way! Caroline had her tonsils out a week and a half ago. Poor little thing has been miserable! But hopefully she is on the road to recovery now. The doctor said it is a good thing they got them out because he didn't know how she was even breathing since they were so big! It should really make a difference to how well she can run and play and even sleep. The leaves are turning and it is my favorite time of the year!
I live in a small town in Arkansas with my husband. We work at the local school. I'm busy with church work and school work - I am in charge of the yearbook. I love visits from my family. One of my greatest interests is in supporting my missionary son who is serving in Brazil for the LDS church. We love to get letters and emails from him. I'm the proud grandma of two beautiful granddaughters. I have a great love for my country. I read and listen and occasionally I speak out!
