Summer 2010 (and a little before)

Catching up...

Because I want to have a photo record of our time spent together and with family, here it is...

We taught Primary (Sunday School for children under 12 years-old) for the year we lived at Nana and Grandpa Victor's. We LOVED the kids so much. It was a stressful responsibility sometimes, but full of sweet rewards.

I graduated and Mom Keller insisted on coming to see me graduate (thanks Mama Keller!) Here's us saying goodbye at the airport. Can you tell she loves us? So many perks when you're the first in-law... I'm completely and utterly spoiled!

Michael and I fit one more trip to a nearby range before we came home.

Here are some of the flowers outside of Nana and Grandpa's.

Visiting Adolfo and Veronica in Orem. I taught them on my mission. They came here from California, he was a total gangster, like, a real one. They were baptized over a year ago and sealed in the temple a few months ago. They're a completely different couple now- sooo happy!

I went to church with Adolfo and Veronica and ran into the Gutierrez family, another family I taught in Orem. At the time, she was 21 with 4 kids and 1 on the way. They weren't married yet and unsure if they wanted to get married. Now they're married, baptized and very happy!

OK, now we're back in Seattle. We moved in with Honey and Boppa (Michael's Dad's parents) for the first part of summer. We loved it, just like we did last summer.

Except for the horrible rain. I couldn't believe how muh it rained that first part of summer!

For my graduation present and Michael's birthday present, they took us to a great play in Issaquah, WA.

Then, lucky for us, we got to take a weekend in Lake Chelan. Mom and Dad Hancock came over and spent the last day and a half with us. I love Chelan and I was so happy to show Michael where many of my greatest childhood memories took place.

More updates to come...
