Trevor meanwhile, was discovering the best seat in the house for the parade.
This year we put some chairs out side the fence for a better view and a better spot for catching parade treasures too.
Elias choose Aunt Emily's swing ... amazing its still there after all these years.
Brady stayed home to sleep as he worked a graveyard that night, and I was upstairs in bed, still sick with the stupid flu.
Jean Valjean. They were neighbor's of Becca and Brady's in Lehi. The little girl, who played Cossette was in Becca and Brady's Sunbeam class.
This is Dad with the Ewells from our Orem ward, who now live in Elk Ridge, and who do the community theater play every year, in fact they met doing the Payson Community Theater play 20 years ago.
On Tuesday I was feeling better, but was still very weak. Darby stopped by to show me some pictures of a house she was looking at in Provo and to tell me that her condo SOLD! In just 10 days on the market, what a great realtor she has!! The visit was quick, but I loved having company, as I was so sick of being sick at that point I could have screamed.
I loved this picture that Emily sent me of Bekie's first day of preschool.
I went to work on Wednesday and Thursday, though Wednesday I was super tired, and slow, by Thursday I was back to full speed, thankfully. Wednesday night Dad bought us Subway Sandwiches and we spent the evening reading.
On Friday I had committed to go and pick up some wood from a friend that I met back in my Butler 8th ward days, the first time around, Robyn Brown. On the way I hit a couple of garage sales, then stopped in at Brambles, shown above, a shop in Provo that I like.
There was some time to hit a DI in Salt Lake before heading to the Browns to pick up the pallet wood, she'd offered me on Facebook .... of course it was fun to visit, for the first time in 20 years! Robyn is the one that challenged me to start reading the scriptures every day, that was when Emily was a baby, so you can see what an influence she has had on my life over the years!
Then on Saturday morning, we had our last function as a ward ... this is our relief society breakfast ...
After the breakfast, I rushed to meet Scott and the grand kids at Lagoon, for his work Lagoon day.
It looks like Dad and Uncle Brady are having the most fun on Puff the Dragon!
As you can see below, it took some doing for Ian to try to convince Zach he was having fun. What a great older brother!
Fun in the sun sure makes you thirsty!
Then there was Sunday, our last in the 5th ward. Here Karry hold's Andrea, my visiting teaching partner's, little boy. I have visit taught Kerry for at least 5 years ... its hard to believe she'll be in another ward. They just better take good care of her ...
So the meeting was at 5 when we found out officially that our ward had been cut in two and each half given to a neighboring ward. I know its a good thing, our ward has been too small to function well, and I am excited to meet new people. I will, however, miss Jane Johnson, the Ekins, the Yorks, the Bachelors, the Stringhams, Georgia Durrant, brother Fernilius and other ward family members. Fortunately for me, they all still live near by!! :-)
