Update on The Andersons

Elder Anderson is doing great. He loves the people of Peru. He recently had his camera stolen with ALL his mission pictures in it. I was sooo sad. I have been able to get two picutres from other missionary moms. In the group picture of missionaries he is the second from the right. The other picture is him eating at a Texas resurant in Peru. The rest of the gang is doing great. Malia just turned eight. Makenna is just finishing her second soccer season at Manti High School. Ethan played football this year and loved it. He is in his first year of middle school. Eric is keeping busy substituting at the high school and elementary school. I am still teaching first grade and working hard on finishing my masters in education administration by August. Our family has been so blessed.

Life in Utah

It has been a long time since I updated our blog. We are dong great here in Utah. Heavenly Father has blessed our family in so many ways. We have a beautiful home in Manti and we only live 3 blocks from the elementary school that I teach at and Ethan and Malia attend. We can see the Manti Temple from our bathroom window. I started my Masters program last October and will complete it one month before EricRoss gets home from his mission in Peru. EricRoss is loving his mission and growing so much. We love to get he's emails on Monday morning. Makenna has really enjoyed her first year of high school in Manti. She has played soccer,basketball and just started track. Eric's health is a struggle but he is working hard to maintain it. It has been blessing to be back at the University of Utah CF clinic.

Dean and Kash visit us in Utah

My nephew Dean and two of our good friends from Hawaii came to Utah to help finish Aunty Yasmin's basement. So our family has a place to stay for awhile. Dean brought his little boy Kashus and we had so much fun. It was so hard to see them go.

Life Changes for the Anderson Family

EricRoss got his mission call last month. He is going to Lima Peru North Mission. We just went out last week to go through the temple with him to take out his endownments. It was an amazing experience. Eric and I were sealed in the Manti temple and then to have our oldest son take out his endownment in the same temple was really special. He doesn't go into the MTC until August 19th. He will spend 3 weeks at the MTC in Provo and then 6 weeks in the MTC in Lima.

While we were in Utah I applied for a 1st grade teaching position in Manti, Utah. There were over 100 applicants for the position and they selected 8 people to interview and I got the job. We really feel the hand of the Lord in our lives. We are now back in Texas and packing to return to Utah on June 22nd.

I can't believe our little boy is eighteen and quickly approaching a mission. He was ordained an Elder by his father yesterday. It was such a neat experience to have our family together for this special ocassion. Grandpa and Grandma Daley came and Uncle Bill and Aunt Sherre were there. Along with our good friends the Heywoods. Here are a few pics of the day. Tomorrow we head for the Ranch to spend New Years with Grandpa and Grandma Daley.
