Temple Trip and Tennis

Last week I finally paid off Lacey's tuition so she can register for next semester. Glad that's off my back. Then to top it off had to take care of my taxes, like I said, glad that's off my back. Sean's first tennis game of the season last Thursday was called off due to snow, which was so light and melted by the time the games were supposed to start, but anyway, I wasn't in charge so the games were cancelled. However, we did go get Sean his birthday present early, a new tennis racket, a Wilson H4, he's convinced his game will be better now. His next game is set for tomorrow, but you guessed it, it's snowing with more in the forecast tomorrow, so doubt he will get to play again. Agony! I got a call from a hospital in Wisconsin today, interested in me. They want to talk to me on Wed. again on the phone. I have a Pennsylvania group calling me tomorrow. PA? Do we want to live there? Saturday morning we had to wake up at 5 am to get ready to take the youth of our Ward to the Temple. We met at church at 5:45 and took the 2 hour drive to Billings. It was a good trip. We had to be there by 8 am- so early. It was neat to see the kids all dressed in white and doing such an important work. The spirit was strong. After, Sean and I roamed through Billings looking for a tennis racket, but still ended up going back to Bozeman to buy one. Well, I'm looking out my window and its still snowing. It looks pretty, and MT needs the water, so can't complain too much. Lacey comes home this weekend for a week before the summer semester starts and the roald to Old Faithful opens up again on Friday, I love Yellowstone and sneak away to see it whenever I can. The road has been closed since Nov. so it will be nice to head farther south into the Park.

Good Weekend

Well, we went to Idaho to see Lacey this weekend. She did great in her concert, even though I didn't video tape the right song. She was the best one in the choir, I could tell. We also went to see Miss Congeniality II. It started off a little slow, but by the end of the movie, it was pretty good. Lacey also took us to Wingers. YUMBO. That's good eating, especially the sticky fingers. You got to try them sometime. We left Lacey Saturday afternoon (boo hoo), and stopped for soda pops in Ennis. When we got home, we picked up Molly and Liberty (our doggies) from the kennel. Liberty had popped all over herself! bad dog. So they both got a bath when we got home. Now they smell perdy! Lacey wouldn't play tennis with Sean in Idaho, so as soon as he got home he found Derrik at the courts and played tennis with him. His first game is this Thursday. We went to Church on Sunday, and then I took a nap. Page made her famous crock pot chicken for dinner. We also saw Supervolcano on TV last night, showing what would happen if the volcano under Yellowstone National Park would erupt. Basically, since we live 50 miles from the Park, we would be dead, probably. And where Lacey goes to school would get wiped out too (so you're not safe either, Lacey). Of course, it probably won't happen for thousands of years, but you never know..... Page said she's not driving through Yellowstone anymore. So how safe is Arkansas?- Mike

New to this blog thing

Ok, I'm new to this blog thing, but my son and daughter seem to have lots of fun doing it. We live in Montana at the moment. A moose was just across the river from my window this morning. Yeah life could be worse! Wednesday was my birthday. Feeling old. (not!) Today I go down to Idaho to see my daughter. I'm really excited, haven't seen her in a few months. My son made the school tennis team and is #2 singles player on the team, I have a very talented family. (brag, brag, brag). And I can't forget to say something about my wife. She is my best friend and makes life fun. Well I hope I get better at this blog thing. Drop me a line sometime- Mike
