It has been many months since we have written a family newsletter, and much has happened since our last installment. Because we try to use this letter as part of our family history book, I will try to hit all of the highlights so that these events are recorded.
Scott has been teaching at the
I continue to have the same routine, day after day. Things are a little slow at work right now, and this is the first time since we moved to our new building that I am actually caught up on all of my long term projects, which is a nice feeling. Just when I am getting comfortable with the amount of work I have to do, one of our tenants expressed an interest to rent our entire building—so, we’re back on the building hunt and possible move again! My extra time has been spent on weddings, showers, etc.
Jim has his own web site and blog, which is linked from the
cgwilly.com web site, so if you’re able to check it out occasionally, he keeps
it pretty up to date. But, if time does
not allow exploring that, here’s what’s going on with him since last
publication: In January, he proposed
Landon is studying madly for his AP tests, which take place
in a couple of weeks. He will be taking
AP Chemistry, AP Physics, and AP Biology, and has also added AP Government to
his list, even though he didn’t take the class—so, he just bought a study guide
and is working on his own to prepare for the test. Graduation is June 1st. He has been accepted and received full
tuition 4 year scholarships from the three schools he applied to: U of U, BYU,
Thank heavens Lauren turned 16 so she can drive herself all the places she needs to go! I was about to have a mental breakdown over this girl! She stays after school for track each day, and has been doing really well. She just tied the school record at a recent tri-school meet, and again at the Davis Invitational a few days ago. She’s really close to breaking the school record, and her coach says her name is the only name she wants to see up on the “record board.” She has also improved greatly in the 100M and 300M hurdles, and is just a few seconds off from qualifying for state. Lauren’s piano and voice teacher is quitting because she’s pregnant again (4th baby in 4 years). I’m not sure if we’ll replace her or not. Lauren’s also been to a few clogging competitions this spring. She went to her first prom a few weeks ago, and looked darling in her prom dress. She’s dated a little, but spends most of her social time talking on the phone or texting Mitch Mender, who lives in New Hampshire (We all think this is fine—a good, safe distance). Mitch came out to visit her a few weeks ago, and he’s a nice boy—she met him at track camp at BYU last summer. Scott hasn’t had to pull out the guns yet.
Other than a trip to the Tetons, we have no other summer plans due to our intense wedding schedule. We hope everyone has a great summer!
