Freshman Year

For those who I haven't seen or talked to for a while I thought that I would just post a quick update of my recent past. I just finished my Freshman year at BYU which was a blast! I lived on campus in Heritage Halls, so I got to cook my own food which was a definite plus for me! I didn't know my roommates when I moved in but we soon became friends with each other as well as our resident ghost Steven who lived in my closet.

Here we are just before our Christmas break playing "Jingle Bells" with glass bottles. Shannon is on the left, followed by Kelsey and KayLee, and I am on the right.

BYU is a little universe unto itself. We even had our own little Family Home Evening "families" with a young man and a young woman assigned to be the "parents." My FHE group was great! Here I am with one of my brothers . . .

And my FHE "dad" . . .

Well, Freshman year passed quickly and before we knew it we had taken our finals and it was time to go home, tired and ready for a break!

Goodbye Freshman year at BYU!

Happy Father's Day!

As with any holiday, today was spent hopping between the Hansen Family and the Brown Family. It was good to see everyone and catch up with family out of state by looking at their blogs . . . so I decided to try one out for myself. I hope I can keep this up! If I can it will be a great way to stay intouch with everyone without giving into the MySpace trend (if you don't already know I'm super stubborn when it comes to some things)!

Summer is going great! I'm staying busy with work--teaching swimming lessons in the mornings and working at Marine Products in the afternoons. I recently cut my hair short which was a huge thing for me but I love it! Especially with my rushed schedule . . . it's much faster in the getting ready department! I also just bought a new car as my brother is turning 16 on Wednesday and needed my old Rodeo. Thus far I am quite enjoying my little silver Volkswagen Jetta, though the car payments won't be too much fun . . . oh well, the joys of growing up!

I love you all!
