My dad...

My dad just recently experienced another stroke. After having several tests, he will have surgery tomorrow and receive a pacemaker. Just a few weeks ago, he found out he has prostate cancer as well. I feel bad he is going through so much, but I am glad we still have him around. I hope everything goes well tomorrow and I am grateful he is my dad. I sure hate to see my parents struggle and I love them very much.

Summit Assemblies

Today we were fortunate to have Reggie Shaw and Zero Fatalities present at our schools in Summit County. The assembly went great! Reggie is really a neat person who just made a really poor decision, but he is sure making the best of it and helping others along the way. I was really impressed with the students....it was dead silent when Reggie spoke. He did ask the students to raise their hands if they have a license...if they use the phone while driving, and also if they text....many hands were raised. I really enjoy working in the schools/community and just hope we can make a difference.

Zero Fatalities Conference

Last week I started my new job with the Summit County Health Department. I am really loving my job. I will be working mostly in North Summit Area (Coalville) which is fairly close to Morgan. Our offices are in Park City and we will be switching buildings next month and be next to the Park City Hospital. The drive is beautiful. We did have a little snow the other day, but it wasn't bad at all. My neighbor works across the street so we have been riding together which makes it nice.
We attended the Zero Fatalities conference last week. Reggie Shaw came and shared his story of texting and driving and how it has changed his life. He was charged, after killing 2 people in a horrible crash. Not a dry eye in the audience. I was so glad he came...it really makes you think twice and helps you to become a better driver.

Time Out for Women

My mom and I attended the Time Out for Women in Logan this weekend. This is the 2nd time I have attended, and I sure look forward to more. The theme this year is Sweet Assurance- the certainty that comes when you know life's truths. The day was full of laughs and also tears. We listened to great speakers such as: Emily Watts, Mary Ellen Edmunds, Jill Manning, Brent Top, and music from Cherie Call. It was a great reminder that Heavenly Father loves each of us and has a plan for us....and we just need to have more patience and things will work out. I really enjoyed the whole day and was grateful to spend some time with my mom.

Happy Birthday Mom!

Just wanted to wish my mom a Happy Birthday! She is a great mother and I appreciate and love her so much. We met at Olive Garden for dinner last night to celebrate. We had a great time! Love you Mom!

24th of July

Last Friday we headed up to Weston, Idaho for the 24th of July parade! We all had a great time!
Grandpa & Jeremy driving the team of horses.

Grandma enjoying some time with Cash! What a cutie!

The funnest part of the day was the ride with Grandpa. We went crusing up the dirt roads in Weston. Grandpa let em go....what a ride! Nothing better then a cruising in the buggy. Thanks Grandpa! We had a fun day. Afterwards we went to the park of a hamburger and went back to relax and have fun spending time together. Thanks for a great 24th!

Good news!

Jeremy and I headed to Salt Lake on Tuesday for a Dr. appointment. After reviewing all the tests, the Dr. said that pulmonary artery that feeds the right lung is narrowed quite a bit, but that enough blood is able to feed the lung. She didn't think it was an aneurysm, it's just the shape it has. She said until I have symptoms that I won't need surgery or anything. She was planning on having someone else look at the tests and make sure. She ordered a chest x-ray and said she would call me in a couple days. I didn't hear from her today so hopefully tomorrow. But, we sure feel better! Thanks for all your words of encouragement. We are so grateful!
Jeremy headed up to Scout Camp today. He is just getting in on the tail end of camp. He was all ready to fix some banana boats for them. I am sure they'll have a great time.
