September 29, 2007. SNOW DAY.

That is right, it is snowing today in Rexburg. I have been in school for a little over two weeks now. My apartment has the best chemistry. Everyone gets along really well and we love being with each other. I’m in the same ward still (56th ward) and I love it. I am still a Relief Society teacher, which is really fun. School is in full force now which means I find myself in the testing center almost every other day. Not much has been happening in Rexburg. The first week of school we had nice weather and my whole apartment went and played in the river. There have been two huge bonfires which most of the school attended both out at the sand dunes. I hate the sand dunes. Its windy and sand gets in everything. You come home smelling like smoke (and laundry isn’t cheap here) and the whole point of the event is to get dressed up and mingle with people… BUT YOU CAN’T EVEN SEE ANYONE CAUSE YOU ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DESERT AT NIGHT! However I did attend both bonfires as a result of having absolutely NOTHING else to do. APX alarm threw their annual fall party which wasn’t as impressive as last falls event. I guess I am just becoming all partied out. I am on a co-ed ultimate Frisbee team (The “EH” team) and a girls flag football team (GreenBeans) they’re both really fun, except when we have horrible weather, like today… I'm on both teams with my cousin Hannah, and on the flag football team with Kandice Palmer. Oh, and Kaiti Pratt came up to visit Rexburg a week ago. (COME BACK SOON) I'll try to update again soon. I don't have anything to blog about like... oh I don't know... A BABY?!

Happy Birthday. Happy Birthday.

Bahahahaha... Every time I think about this cheap cellophane type banner hanging above one of the windows in my family’s kitchen I begin to laugh. I think it is going on almost one year of being there in the same place. I know for a fact that it was up last Christmas, when Dahl was at our home celebrating his 2nd birthday. But, it could have been up long before that. And after I leave for school, in a few short days, who knows how much longer it will remain above the window. A few weeks ago my mom asked me to take it down, but then quickly retracted the request when she realized, Matt’s birthday was just around the corner (August 9th). Just this weekend we were going to take it down again, but realized Lisa’s birthday is on Wednesday. Shortly after that we will be celebrating Matt and Lisa’s baby’s birth, and that birthday will be followed by Mike’s on October 22nd… In other words, I feel as if this 99cent cellophane banner is here to stay…
