Keith's New Calling - Bishop Brown

August 23, 2009 Keith was ordained and set apart as bishop of the Oatfield Ward of the Milwaukie Oregon Stake. We were lucky that Taylor was already visiting from Provo and Megan and Kevin were able to get plane tickets and fly to Oregon. It meant a lot to Keith for our family to be there together.

Katelyn's 15th Birthday



Katelyn spent her birthday at girl's camp. When she got home we celebrated with some friends, the Dotys. She want a yellow and cake with chocolate frostening. She also got a camera and a new bed for her birthday. Happy Birthday Katelyn!!!! I'm surprised we haven't been to DMV yet. :)

Katelyn's Little Accident




Katelyn had a little accident at Youth Conference. She was trotting on a horse around a corner and a tree when her foot slipped out of the stirrup. She lost her balance and fell off the horse. Those who witnessed the fall said it was very graceful. Unfortunately her wrist is broken and her tail bone is very sore. She got to leave Youth Conference for x-rays, a real bathroom and prime rib dinner! Thanks Brother Doty for taking such good care of her.

Megan's Graduation









July 23rd Megan graduated for BYU Idaho with her Associate Degree in General Studies. Way to go Megan!!!!

Todd and Jill's Family











We were also able to have a really good time with Todd's family. His kids are full of energy. I'm sure you can see that from the photos.

Rexburg Visit




A couple weeks ago I was able to visit Taylor in Provo. We took a road trip to Rexburg to see Megan and Kevin. This is Taylor trying out Kevin's new toy. I think his legs are to long.

New Friend


This is a Chucker Partridge. He has adopted our home. He has been living in the bushes between our house and the neighbors. Smokey wants to get him really bad and Ally thinks its fun to chase him around the cars in the drive way. The bird hardly ever flies and he walks like a penguin.

Taylor's Apartment



Taylor's room, lucky for him, he is on the bottom bunk.



Taylor is living in Raintree apartment in Provo. The first day we went in the smell was sickening. However, Taylor convinced everyone to clean and now it is much better.

Road Trip May, 2009

Taylor had a great time with Tyson's birthday present.

More Road Trip Fun

Cooper and "Costco" getting dog hair all over his P.J.s.

Sam and Syd really love Taylor!!!!!




Tyson's stinky feet. Which he thought was really funny.

Road Trip May, 2009





On our way to Provo Taylor and I stopped off in Rexburg to help Megan and Kevin move. They were very lucky and found a really nice "big" apartment. The kitchen has all new cabinets and the square footage is more than double were they were living. P.S. The little guy is Alex. Jan's little boy.

Utah Valley University

Taylor started school at Utah Valley University on May 6, 2009. He decided to go to Provo so the transition to BYU in January would be easier. He is taking a calculus based physics class and lab on the block. That means the class is accelerated. He also started working part time this week at a satellite company in American Fork.

Tennis



Katelyn played tennis for Rex Putnam High School. She really loved it. Her coach was extremely positive. (Let's hear it for elementary teacher coaches). We look forward to seeing her play again next year.
