Ed Week 2011!!

I wish I had written about this week soon after it had happened to hopefully capture the magical feel I had all week.  This was - hands down- one of the best times of my entire life.  
 Me and Erin in front of the Provo temple.  It was amazing even just walking on the grounds; what a peaceful feeling there. 
We are matching buds.  I think this might have been after a couple hour bout of giggling the night before.  We must have become linked in our color/fashion.  
In one of my classes I happened to sit by a bit of a strange lady.  After the class, she stood up to leave and was pulling a ahem. wedgie. out.  She got right into it and proclaimed, "come on!  Get out of there!"  When you're sleepy and tired, late at night this is extremely funny.  
I was able to have a quick visit with a dearly missed family, The Owens.  They used to live in MN (as our Bishop) and moved to Idaho.
 One of my besties, Tina.  We had so so so much fun.  She stayed with me the last night in the dorm then headed to her house the next day/night.  We got to spend the entire day together : D
 View from the restaurant in the top of the Joseph Smith Building.
 Big enough sandwich?
 I've finalllllly been able to cross off my list to do a live session at the Salt Lake City temple.  Loved it!

Fun Picture

I had to share this picture Justin took while we were getting ready for the real family pictures.  I LOOOOOOVE it. 
I wish he were in it.


I brought Jacob with me to be my "helper" at a photo shoot at Long Lake.  Here he is sporting his new tennies.
He drove all the way to the Lehmans for seminary this morning (about a mile).  It sure is scary.  REALLY scary.

Randomness by JoAnne Aug-Sept

 Aug 29 -Did the whole MN fair thing with Justin today.  It was surprisingly calm and nice.  Yummy food too.  
Back to school night for the next two days.  
Allison had her first babysitting job today.   She was so super excited.
Aug 30 - Lazy day.  Took Jacob to his back to school night to get his schedule.
Justin is in Sioux Falls until tomorrow night.
Sept 7  Just saw a hummingbird out my office window!  Amazing!  First ever in Minnesota!
First day of school for Jacob (yesterday for the others) so MY first day !!!!
Listening to some acoustic Tinashe on You tube.
Jacob started Drivers Ed tonight.  Holy. Crap.
9-28 I asked Ammon if he'd like to come read books with me.  He said "only if you make me a smoothie."

A little Geocaching

In between General Conference Sessions, we drove to Elm Creek Park reserve to play at the awesome park (if you haven't been, you MUST go see this park) and to find a few geocaches.  It's fun to find a family activity that all the different ages enjoy. 
They bring little doo dads to trade.  So exciting for them.
The kids new cell phone has a pretty good gps on it.
