Grad School Begins!

Well, it was a bit of a whirlwind, but I made it through. The hardest part was to sit still in class without falling asleep! I'm really excited about everything we're learning and am able to apply it right away with my patients. I met several new friends. Went to lunch and hung out with Stacey (hotel mate), Stacy, Tim, Jessica, and more.

We're Married!!!

What a beautiful day we had. It's hard to believe that it's all over. Everyone did such a great job getting things to come together so nicely. The temple ceremony was beautiful and very meaningful. I felt like that would have been enough to make for a great day. Jack and I went to lunch with our parents at Tom Ham's Light House. It was so nice and relaxing. The reception was beautiful. A lot of work went into it and we just had such a great time with so many family and friends. (So many had a trip to make to be there with us.) We opened gifts yesterday morning at my mom and dad's and were so overwhelmed at everyone's generosity. We truly feel loved. Thanks to all.


We had such a nice honeymoon. We got to spend a day in Mexico, go kayaking in the ocean, explore the caves at La Jolla Shores, eat yummy sushi and fondue, and finish it off with a morning at the San Diego Temple. We relaxed and had a good time. Jack even taught me how to play chess. : )

Fiddle Fest

What a fun weekend! Jack and I went up to join Grandpa Slim, Aunt Deanne, and Uncle Clyde at a Fiddle Fest Camp. It was actually the Arizona Old Time Fiddlers Association. G'pa Slim and Jack played quite a few on their guitars and we had a fiddler, a mandolin player, and even an acordian player join in. The grand daughter of the mandolinist was learning fiddle. She was cute. After breaking camp on Sunday morning, we followed Slim home to Camp Verde and I got to meet his wife, Angie, and see his beautiful jewelry (Slim hand crafts jewelry in his own shop out back of the house). Slim made us a yummy breakfast of bisquits and gravy. Yum,yum.

River Walk

This a yard that I love! It is one that Jack and I frequently pass on our neighborhood walks. What I love is the "lake" of grass and the winding "river" of rocks. It's even more breathtaking in real life. It just makes me want to sit outside with a good book.
