I've been absent for the last few weeks. First I was sick, and then we took a very impromptu trip up to Washington to see Greg's family. It was so great to see them all and just relax. Other than seeing family, the kids' favorite part was shooting the bb gun. After almost a week up there, we headed home with a detour in Utah for a day. I was desperately needed at the office there. I work from home and it mostly works, but there are definitely a few drawbacks.
Look at that concentration!
The day after we got home my youngest brother graduated from high school. And he was valedictorian! He gave an awesome speech and we're all so proud of him. We naturally had tons of family visit and there was a constant steam of activities all weekend.
While on vacation in Washington I was called as the 2nd counselor for the Primary (the children's class at our church). That was a pretty big shock, and has really kept me busy the last few weeks. But I think I'm really going to enjoy it.
So there you have it. A very short summation of why I haven't been around. There's much more detail I could go into, but I'll spare you this time. Lucky You!
