It is funny to me. People down south of us (AKA: Utah) are complaining about the weather, and the snow and how there is so much snow. Well folks, I hate to break it to you, but it is currently too cold for it to snow in Idaho.....

In fact it brings me back to the mission (this is not really how I walked...honest) when it took complete concentration to just not fall on the ice and snow....while tracting in -33 degree weather. Just FYI, you can't wear enough clothes to keep warm, and yet, I loved every minute of it.

Or days like this, when there were ice storms and we couldn't drive so we had to walk. Made for some HILARIOUS moments, like sliding down driveways on your butt, while taking your companion out with you, and all your supplies and books go flying down the driveway past you. Haha, love it.
Good memories....luckily I don't have to deal with this weather in a skirt anymore. Life is good. But, I hope it warms up a least enough to snow, that would be nice.

What a Beautiful Mess

Man, it has been a while and life has gotten EXTREMELY crazy over the last month or so! Lots and lots has happened, good and stressful! :) Such is life. I tried to upload pictures but it wouldn't cooperate. Dang.

For Thanksgiving I went to Utah and met up with my family there. We hung out and on Friday we went to Savior of the world. To top it all off, BYU beat U of U. What more could you want.

I am also working as an ordinance worker in the Rexburg temple now and love it. It is such a blessing to be able to work there for 7 hours every Saturday and feel of the spirit that is there. Love it. Love it. Love it.

I am loving teaching seminary. It is a lot of fun, and I love my kids. I have learned that kids will be kids and that can mean some really hilarious/dorky things happen, but I love them none the less. I have two classes in Shelley Id that are 90 minutes long and then I just picked up another class in Sugar City Id that is 70 minutes long. I love teaching from the scriptures. It is different from the mission because it is going through the whole Book of Mormon one chapter at a time and ust dissecting it! I love being able to do that and see the kids feeling the spirit and continue to strengthen their testimonies of the restored gospel.

I am staying crazy busy with preparation and getting ready for next semester and so I have been running non stop. Next semester I am taking a full load of classes starting at 7:15 each morning and tuesdays and thursdays don't get out of classed till 9:15 at night! Yikes....not looking forward to it! But life will go on!
