What'cha bin doin'?

Here's what we've been doing since we've been back from our vacations. We've had lots of fun. The kids are in little classes at the community rec. center up the road. Leah is in Tiny Tots Ballet, Sam is in a sports class that does all sorts of sports, and Shaunie is taking a basketball skills class. They each go once a week and they are loving it. It has been a nice break from being at home. Vegas weather doesn't really let us go outside in the summer time very much, so this is what they are doing. We are having fun watching them develop their new talents and skills, too.

I also had a ton of fun visiting with my long, lost, MTC companion Taralyn Poll. She is now Taralyn Hadley and she has two adorable children with a third on the way. Here are some pictures with her kids. The boy in the middle is her son Jed, and the boy with Troy is Andrew. We spent some time with them on a Saturday and got reacquainted and laughed and just has some fun. She is still so much fun to be with. We also invited Jenny Hodge over. She was in our district too and she was our roommate. Jenny is a lawyer here in Henderson and I am so glad she is so close. We ran into her almost a year ago at a BYU/UNLV football game. I didn't even recognize her at first because she has changed so much. She has always been beautiful, but she is gorgeous now! She is also a lot of fun to be with and it was so much fun getting together. I am so blessed to have such good friends. They are people who I can truly say know me and STILL like me. Thanks to them for all the good times and memories. I hope we can get together more often.
