It has been since April that we last wrote and for the
record, this is Scott writing this time, so if you want to stop now, that’s
okay. I’m not nearly as good at writing
as Heather, nor do I possess the memory skills she does, so I’ll forget many
events that should be mentioned.
May 23rd was Jimmy and Kathie’s wedding. Since many of you were able to join us for
some or all of the events, I won’t take a lot of time to go into details. Everything went very well. It was such a nice day for them and for
us. They have been living in Tyler and Amy’s apartment until they leave for Baltimore which worked
out perfectly with their wedding plans.
While Tyler and Amy are on their honeymoon, Jim and Kathie will move out
and begin relocating to Baltimore. That event is just a couple weeks away.
Tyler and Amy’s wedding is this coming Saturday. We leave for California on Thursday. We are going to spend Thursday night in Las Vegas and see Phantom
of Opera. The kids saw it a few months ago
and raved about it so much, that we have been talked into seeing it there. Jim and I will fly home Sunday night to begin
the trek to Baltimore
in a moving van. I think we are going to
try and schedule a stop in South Bend,
where we can visit Matt and Lori.
This past Wednesday thru Saturday we traveled as a family to
Jackson Lake for a last fling before Jim and
Kathie move to Baltimore and Tyler and Amy get married. Landon and Lauren each invited a friend of
the opposite gender. They both have a
friend that they were comfortable inviting on a family vacation. We enjoy their company. You may see them in some of the photos. I will submit a few photos from this trip
that you can enjoy if you choose. We had
a great time. The weather was fabulous.
Heather and I were able to spend a weekend in Phoenix as part of a
business trip after Jim and Kathie’s wedding to relax and prepare for the next
Heather has been busy helping with the Groom’s part of the
wedding plans for both Jim and Tyler. As
you might guess she does an excellent job in all the plans she makes. She is also planning a mother’s trip in
August to Denver. They ladies will be seeing all the sites and
seeing the new musical, “Little Mermaid”.
Landon and Lauren went to a Stake Youth Conference in June
held at a “dude ranch” in the Uintah’s.
Lauren went to EFY at Utah
State this year. Lauren and Landon both competed in Track and
Field this past spring. Landon received
recognition as Academic All-State in 5A for Track and Field. Lauren placed fourth in High Jump in 5A in
spite of an injury to her foot. Had she
jumped her personal best she would have taken 2nd. She still has two more years in high-school. Lauren also learned to slalom ski at East Canyon
this year during girl’s camp. I’ll
attach a few photos of her skiing as well.
I took some customers from Sweden
to Lake Powell in June. Because I had some employees cancel at the
last minute I was able to take Landon and Clint as “deck hands”. My work has been a little bit up in the air
recently. It appears that FMC Jetway may
be for sale. We are in that stage where
management can’t talk about anything, but the rumors are quite clear that
something is going on. I should know
within a month whether it has any affect on my future.
Landon scored perfect on all of his recent Advanced
Placement (AP) exams which is a “5”, except for one in which he only scored a
“4”. Anything above a “3” earns college
credit. The interesting thing about that
class is he didn’t even take the class.
He just studied for and took the AP exam. Landon attended the U of U orientation
today. He is getting registered and
ready to begin his college life in the field of Physics. He is also considering a dual major, maybe in
mathematics or some other scientific field.
I hope all is well with everyone else in the family.
