First there was conference, which we absolutely loved! I enjoyed listening to some of the priesthood session talks today while I was waiting for Brett to come home from church (he stayed late with his calling.)
On Tuesday I drove down to Woods Cross to meet up with my family! Well, my parents and brother Craig anyway. They were bringing Craig to Utah to take him to the MTC! We stayed in Woods cross so that we could go to the 8:00 session at the Salt Lake temple on Tuesday night. It was nice going through with family, Brett missed out on all the adventures because he had class.
Wednesday we took Craig to the MTC. It was great to see all the young men in their missionary attire lined up to greet the new missionaries. I can't believe how fast it happened. One minute he was in the car talking to us the next he was being swept away by a group of missionaries that were saying things like "don't worry we'll take good care of him." They did allow us to get out of the car for one last hug. Craig made me promise to send word to him the second we know if we are having a boy or a girl. He'll be a fabulous uncle. I headed back to Rexburg and my parents headed back to Albuquerque right after dropping him off. I am really glad i was able to go.
This weekend I decided last minute to go with Brett to Honeyville. It was nice having the time in the car to talk, but once he gets there he is all work. Except for the breaks he takes to kill flies. I guess it is that time of year on the farm. Brett killed about 20 flies in less than an hour.
Brett's brother Ryan was in Utah this weekend for work, it was nice to catch up with him and hear how his family is doing.
It was fun to see nieces and nephews. My favorite was having my 8 year old nephew tell me that hospital food is his favorite and don't worry the beds are really comfortable, and then my 7 year old niece look at me with a horrified look on her face and told me she is never going to have a baby because you have to get so many shots and am I scared?! They are the best!
Work and school continue to go well!
