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.

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.
