Catch UP!!!

I have a few minutes to update. More for my record than your interest....
Sorry no pics right now. There are only so many hours in a day.
Summer started with a bang!
June found me with my two awesome kids and a bunch of family and friends backpacking into the Grand Canyon. Havasupai to be exact. 11 miles in. Cascading bliss for several days. So many beautiful things to see. Hiking out. My kids were amazing on their first backpacking adventure.
We spent the summer working hard. We survived girls camp, scout camp, 4th of July fun, and more working.
Updates:
Kassidy completed the requirements for her Young Woman's Personal Progress Recognition. She is truly the best teenage daughter there ever was. She likes 9th grade and has 2 Honors classes plus a College Prep Literature class. She recently came home from her first quarter of "high school" with a 4.0 GPA. She also just got her braces off and we love her beautiful smile!!!!
Mitchell hates that there are no kids in our neighborhood. Loves school and sports still. He spent a week up north with cousins during summer and wants to go live with his cool aunts now.  He plays tight end and cornerback on his football team. HE LOVES IT!!!!! He is in 6th grade at the intermediate school and brought home a 4.0 GPA for the first quarter. He is wearing contacts and growing out of all his clothes.
Bethany - ME
working at an oral surgery practice here in town. Serving the young women at church. Helping Brandon get his business off and running. Playing co-ed softball, mountain biking, and hiking when possible. I have new scars to prove it.
Brandon
LOVES his new career!  Working very hard!  He mentioned the other day how much he loves his new job and wishes he had started it sooner. It is a great fit for him and he is so happy here. He is doing so well that he is moving out of the district office and opening his own new office in about 2 weeks. It is awesome!!!! Still biking when possible. Playing softball with his awesome wife. And scoutmastering weekly.
Maybe one day soon I'll have time to post photos.
