My sister in law Tiffany loves me so much that she took me to Lagoon with her for FREE! I haven't been there since I was 14! I love going on roller coasters and have been on some of the fastest, but Lagoon was really fun, and it was great having sister to sister in law time without Jimmy :) My favortie rides were Wicked, and Samurai.

As a side note, Jimmy propagated a ton of tomato plants and they need homes. If you or anyone you know wants a tomato plant, let us know!

Jimmy convinced me and we found cheap tickets so I went home for a quick weekend. It was really fun and a surprise to my nephews and nieces. We had so much fun going to the pool, visiting my grandparents house for the last time, and visiting the Truman Library, and devouring my sisters Udderly Deadly Pecan Pie till I got sick(true southern cookin´). Most of all it was wonderful just getting away and spending time with family.

The Udderly Deadly Pecan Pie! Yum!

This game ¨hit the spot¨ always was the coveted game. I don´t know how many times we crouched around each other, cheering or laughing at the other player whining for our turn. Sadly the picture does not show that I hit the spot, it was placed there What great memories!

Meeting a President...kind of.

I´ve swam, almost drowned, and had many pool parties at this pool. It´s strange that the next generation is there now. They made this awesome spray park instead of the kiddie pool as their latest update. It was fun! Yea the pool!!!

Summer Time!

So I realize that my summer time started over a week ago, when this post should have been posted, but it's been a busy week and a half! I totally had fun during my last week of school.

There were so many activities, and the kids were way excited for summer break (as was I!). After school got out, I started the summer relaxing with Jimmy and loving every minute of it!

We got tickets to Parade of Homes,

bikes for fun bike rides,

we participated in a "mock disaster" for our BYU stake and were prepared!

finished out the ward's intermural softball season,

we've been on lots of walks/jogs and seen some great movies!

We were lucky that Jerry and his family could come out to visit for a while, and were grateful to see them! Happy Birthday Misha!

took a trip back home to Missouri (more pics to come), and a summer reading class for teachers.
It's been a fun week and a half, and I must say a better start than last summer. I love being a teacher!
