Happy Friday

So, it's been way too long since I've blogged about anything - life has actually been pretty interesting and fun lately, which gives me more to write about and less time to write about it! So, sorry, I know you've all been dying to know about our exciting life.

One of my oldest friends came to visit last Thursday/Friday with his wife and baby. There were driving through Utah on the way to Portland from Connecticut. We had a great time showing them around Provo (the canyon, BYU campus, you know, the excitement was almost too much) and mostly just playing with Vera who was too adorable to resist. We have a great video of her playing with James's robot which we will post soon. Once again David and Calla Maria - we're very sorry for getting your child addicted to technology.

Another awesome friend from the Northwest also dropped in this week - just knocked on my front door and totally surprised me. It was so fun to hang out with her again. I've missed her terribly.

And last of all, I started teaching English again - I have several new students (four, for now) that want to improve their writing and speaking skills, so I'm having a blast with them teaching about organization strategies, transitions, etc. I come home after our one hour session and just feel happy to be teaching again. I had forgotten how much I liked it.

Anyway, that's all the excitement we've got for you for now, until we get some pictures up on here. Have a great Friday!

Fun stuff! I love it when the people I love stop by to see me. Friendships make life wonderful.

Glad you are teaching again... you are so good at that! Also, like the new blog format except it is hard to read words on top of the blue stars. And I love the photo! Mom

P.S. I also love that photo and your new blog style is so fun. I keep my blog layouts for a minimum of 3 years. Didn't you know?
