Birthday Weekend

This weekend Bodie and I went home so he could help a friend wire a house, and also because it was my sister Emily's birthday. While I was there I also put some cool colors in Courtneys hair. It looks awesome. It's a lot more vibrant in real life.

I was also able to go watch Emily's Jr. Jazz Basketball game..this is the first year she has played and she is AMAZING. She made four baskets, and missed a couple. She plays point gaurd, so she is always handling the ball and bringing it down. She is so good at's like it comes natural to her. I had a great video of her but it's not uploading for some reason. the pics I have are really dark...
She had SO much fun at her game. Everyone was yelling for her and cheering. She was definitely the allstar in the gym. It was so cute too because it was her birthday. Later Saturday night Bodie and I took Emily to Price to get her a new church dress and shoes. We also went out for ice cream. She stayed the night at Bodie's with us and we played the wii for the rest of the night. We all went to church Sunday morning, and relaxed the rest of the day. That evening we brought Emily back home and stayed for the family birthday party. We had my grandpa, aunt lisa, and cousins all there. It was really fun. She got a alot of money for her birthday..haha.

The weekend was really fun. It went by quick, as usual, but we enjoyed every minute of it.

Spring 09'

School started last week and it already feels like it's going SO slow. As I said in a previous blog, I am taking 27 credits, 4 normal go-to classes, and 5 independent classes. So far things are going well...excpet the fact that I have to buy books for every class. I usually have been lucky to not need a book at all, or just shared with a friend. All the classes are strictly communications which is great. They all kind of work together. I am planning on doing some individual projects and such for the independent classes. Overall, I think this semester is going to be a good challenge, but nothing that cant be done! I love the communications department. My professors this semester are great, and I love learning what they teach. One of my classes is a comm theory where you do your capstone. That, I believe, will be a 30 page paper. Yay! Good thing I have mentally prepared for that one. Bodie also started his next semester of electrical apprenticship schooling. I dont know how much he enjoys that...but oh well. That's school right? That's the update as of now...
