Amy, S mores, Temple, Korea, Japan.....

Tim got a new self propelled lawn mower and sold our old one.  He has been showing Luke how to mow the lawn.  He also got an awesome stationary bike so he can get a little exercise in while still getting work done.  He started working on a new business in making animated lessons for learning Chinese Characters. The clips have turned out amazing!  

Amy started Cosmetology School, and decided it wasn't for her and withdrew.  It was just too much (9:30 am-5:45 pm schedule each day) since she also has several high school classes to take and she would have had to miss girl's camp, youth conference, several reunions, etc... We are realized more and more each day that this is a better path for her.  

Brian and Chloe are enjoying their time in Japan

Brian had to retake the ACT exam to try for a better score so he could qualify for some goals he is working on and all the ACT test sites in Japan were full.  He found openings in South Korea, so over the weekend, he flew to Seoul, stayed overnight in a hotel, got up early the next morning and took the exam, went to the Seoul Temple, back to the airport and flew back to Japan.  Whew, and it all went smoothly!  We are grateful!

He met many interesting people along the way and even had an opportunity to use his Russian! 

These two are doing some great things and we are so proud of them!

We went to Walmart and Luke saw a s'mores display.  He said, "Crackers, marshmallows, chocolate." We picked some up, brought it home, made a small fire in the sandbox and roasted the marshmallows for s'mores.  He loved them!

Amy took the train up to see her friend Brielle and she stayed over night.  They went out to dinner and had fun catching up. On Sunday she helped out at the Developmental Center.

Luke went skating

Tim and I went to the temple

 Luke had swimming.  His teacher is pregnant so he probably wont have lessons too much longer, but he has had the same teacher for three or four years now and she has been so fabulous.  We love her!

I woke up with a bruised foot and spent all day Saturday propping it up and reading a book, "Thank You for being Late," by Thomas Friedman.  It is so good!  And Tim was sweet to get me these gorgeous flowers just because 💗💗💗💓💓 I love him very much!

 I took him to the airport for his trip to Cincinnati for work.  His hotel is in a museum and his room even has items from the museum.  Check out the nose in the shower, and there was also an ear.  Kind of creepy-ha!
