January...

So we haven't blogged for a while and the last blog I wrote was somewhat boring so I figured I would let everyone know how our January has been going. Mostly, we are doing school stuff all the time. I feel like I ever do is read from textbooks. Cameron just started his last semester and he seems pretty excited about. I am taking a Maternal Newborn class this semester, which has honestly been the best birth control I could ask for. When the textbook described giving birth as squeezing a softball through a tube sock, I decided that I could wait a while before I needed to experience that type of pain! haha

Anyways, on Martin Luther King Day my parents, Colin, and Tulo came down to St George for the weekend. It was a lot of fun, we went to Zion which is always good but, we also took the drive to Colorado City!! I didn't really know what to expect but I am telling you it was crazy! Polygamists don't finish building their houses (rumor has it that you don't have to pay taxes on the part of your house that's unfinished) which gives the whole town sort of an eerie look to it. Also, the little kids playing in the street ran and hid from us when we drove by. That was pretty odd too. So, the next time you're in St. George I would really recommend taking the drive to see how the Polygs live, it's an experience you'll never forget!!

Hiking in Zion









One of my residents passed away today, it has been really hard for me to watch him decline these past few weeks. I am usually OK about everything and I know not to get too close to residents because they will be going on to the next life soon but for some reason Gray has always had a special place in my heart. Gray was always laughing and smiling, he was just a good guy. He is a cowboy through and through. I know that he is in a better place now, that he is no longer hurting, and that he can remember.



I will miss him so much, love ya Gray!

Oh sad. :( I bet that really i hard when they die. That would really rough for me. On a happier note, the part about the "polygs" was hilaious...and yes, i think i WILL have to visit over there sometime. I am NOT kidding though...i really want to plan a road trip to see TARZAN...SO SO MUCH!!!

Let me just say that a soft ball going through a tube sock is easy compared to the real deal! I's more like a watermellon than a softball!
