Farewell 2nd ward!



So Kass is picking up on the copy-cat stage of life that most little kids go through. It's amazing to watch her and see how much of what we do rubs off on her. I guess it's a little incentive to only do good things so she doesn't give our faults away by doing them in public! Today at church she did a couple of these copy cat acts. First, Kassidy took my chapstick and started writing on the chalkboard and talking like she was teaching a class. She picked this up from assisting Kevin in his study group he teaches twice a week at the University. Second, Kass has learned how to throw things in the garbage can, which is good when she throws away the right things. We always clap for her when she throws a piece of garbage away, so today at church Kev gives her a piece of Laffy Taffy (he hides treats in his suit and pulls them out to coax Kass to be his buddy, like she isn't already enamored with him) and tells her to throw the wrapper away. She does and then turns to us and starts clapping and yells, "Yay!" right in the middle of class. Everyone turned around and laughed. Kids, gotta love 'em! Today was also our last day in the 2nd ward since Kevin and I just got released and we no longer live in the ward boundaries. We both gave talks in sacrament today and were replaced in our callings, so we're free to go to our new ward. It's really quite sad and we'll miss all the wonderful people and Bishop Rees. See you around friends!

I am so sad that you guys are gone. We are really going to miss you. Our ward is going to be mom-less now! I wish I could have been there to hear you guys speak. We need to make sure we get together often so we can still see you guys!

She looks HUGE in that picture!! She is so beautiful! Wait utnil she learns that if you yell really loud in Scarament meeting, "I NEED TO POO! I NEED TO POO!" you get hauled right out to play in the hall. (Yes, this was Bridger.)

I received an invitation to Katie Dunstan's baby shower. Did you know she was pregnant? I had no clue. You guys are making me feel really old!

I bet you are excited to sit with your husband again during sacrament meeting! We are going to the married student ward, I think it is the 13th ward and Colten and Shay Dye are going to that ward to, so will be excited to start having you and Kevin coming as well, it will feel more like our ward since a lot are just transplanting up there!
