Who Says You Can't Go Home

Almost 20 years ago I attended LDS Business College up on 411 South Temple. I loved the old building structure....I always felt like I was walking into my second home when I came to my classes. My favorite times at this college were the dark snowy mornings. I loved walking into the main building to see the fireplace roaring with a warm welcoming fire. I always loved the atmosphere and spirit that resided within our classes.

Today, 19 years later I walked back into LDS Business College as a student once again. The campus has since moved to the Triad Center on the corner of 300 West and North Temple...just a few blocks away but has a very different look.
Even though the big roaring fireplace is gone, the new modern building still has that welcome home feeling.....who says you can't go home?!

"Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die." ~G.K. Chesterton
Dedicated to all the men and women who have served in the military past or present...and in honor of those who have lost their lives protecting the freedoms that we enjoy and sometimes take for granted.

The past month or so has gone by in the blink of an eye. Usually if I have not posted it is because nothing interesting is going on...or too much is going on. In this has been too much!

This last month has been filled with hospital visits for three of Walter's family members. Now that things are beginning to settle down, I have time to think about how grateful I am for the health of my own family which is something I perhaps take for granted.

It is a reminder to make sure I am making the time for the important things, cooking proper and nutritious meals, getting the kids and myself outside for plenty of physical activity, and making time to really connect with those I love so much.

Life is is good to remember.

Washington DC Vacation

We were very excited about this trip. It was the first time I had ever flown...and my boys had never flown either so we were very excited. We had a wonderful time back east. Our favorite day was probably the day we spent at Ocean City Beach. Walter's cousins Xavier, Caroline, Nora, and Johnnie all took very good care of us while we were out there and showed us some amazing things. Our trip would not have been as great without the time they spent showing us around the area. What an incredible place!

If All Else Fails

If All Else Fails played at a firework stand Friday night in front of Walmart in Layton. They got to play many of their favorite songs.
Austin and Matt play guitar and Sean is on bass.

Tyler sang lead on "Feeling This" For a kid who always swore he hated singing....he sure enjoyed it! It was a fun night and everyone seemed to enjoy the performance.
