Tomorrow marks the first day of Spring. I'm ready for winter to be over and am looking forward to outside activities that don't involve snow. In a perfect world, there would always be snow in the mountains and summer weather in the valleys! Since we don't live in a perfect world, I say bring on Spring! Although we have had a lot of fun in the snow this year, both snowboarding and otherwise:
There's no way to cover all that's happened since I last posted, but I'll try for a "Cliffs Notes" version:
After close to 20 years, Mark is once again working in Ogden. He's really loving the 20-minute commute. I still work in Sandy, but get to work from home two days a week, which makes up for the commute the three days I go into the office.
Braden is now a junior at the University of Utah, majoring in Computer Science. He is working at a Target in Salt Lake. Since he's living at home, he gets to commute to Salt Lake most days of the week. Luckily he's got a fun new car to drive, after saying goodbye to his totaled Civic.
Sam is a sophomore and got her driver's license a few weeks ago. Now that she's got her license, and all of her practice driving hours in, she's learning to drive a stick shift so she can drive the Accord. She's having fun taking ballet, jazz, and hip hop and wants to start looking for a job soon.
Sarah is in 5th grade and has been busy with choir, soccer, ballroom dancing, and karate. She'll be testing soon for her junior black belt.
