This summer I have played with my friends Elizabeth & Skyler.  Sometimes we go camping, play with toys, and mess up my room.  I learned how to ride a two-wheeler this summer.  Pretty cool – huh!  I’m going to be in 1st grade this summer and I’m so excited.  My teacher’s name is Mrs. Turpin.    




This summer, I was playing with Ashley. My best friend. I like to play with her. We were playing a game and we where acting weird, and my other friend was over and her name was Alyssa. And she played with us. We played a game that Ashley was a dog, Alyssa was the Mom, and, I was the daughter and we were being really weird. And sooner or later, Alyssa had to go home. Then Ashley and me were playing after dinner, and we played the same game. Ashley hit me in the nose on accident, and I got a bloody nose. Ashley started to say “how did I do that!”

This summer I walked to Target with my friends almost 20 times.

The first thing we do when we get there is go to Wendy’s and get a frosty and fries. Then we walk down to Albertson’s to get a drink from the vending machine. After that we walk to target and spend most of our time in the game section where you can play PS3 and Xbox-360. Most of the games are fun. After that we go to the candy section and buy some candy. After we leave target we go to Papa Murphy’s and buy cookie dough. We eat the cookie dough then walk back home.J




          Hey guys!!! So… this summer I did summer gym. It was about 3 weeks… for a few hours a day, and it was totally worth it! I went to Oakcrest (A form of girls camp) and then ward girls camp, where we got pedicures. It was quite nice. I got to spend a week at efy. It was amazing!!! I met some awesome people, and heard some awesome stories and lessons and whatnot. Through out the summer I’ve been volunteering at our school. That’s been pretty interesting. A lady in our ward works there, and they needed help. The bonus was I got to see my schedule weeks before anyone got theirs, and I know a bunch of stuff about the new teachers that they’ve been hiring. As for my future plans… I joined the marching band. I’m going to be in PIT, or percussion or whatever it’s supposed to be called. I’m planning on trying out for any special choir our new choir teacher will be doing, and I am most likely going to try out for the ninth grade basketball team. I’m totally excited for everything. I love you all, and I hope to see you soon!!!




I started off the summer with Driver’s Ed and was hauling myself out of bed earlier than I had for school; hardly a fair start to the summer. But as soon as that was over I just hung around home. July we went to girl’s camp, which was probably the best girl’s camp I’ve ever gone to. And a couple weeks ago marching band officially started (tenor sax, for those of you who didn’t know), so my tan line on my ankle is very hard to miss. That’s going to be my main focus for the next few months.


Ross & Jennie


Ross & I have done some hiking this summer, which has been real fun.  We’re hoping to hike Mt. Timpanogus in September.  We’ll see what happens.  Ross is in Kentucky this week at work-related meetings. Lucky guy.  I can’t believe how fast this summer has gone by.  It must be a world’s record!  Ross has spent a lot of time working in the yard – plus growing what I must say is the most awesome pumpkin patch in all of West Jordan!  We’ll have to send pictures at Halloween.  My summer was spent working on weddings.  My good friend had a son and a daughter get married in July – just six days apart!  That’s cruel and unusual punishment to a parent if you ask me.  I was the ‘Wedding Planner’ (like the dude in ‘Father of the Bride’).  It was very stressful but a lot of fun at the same time.  I’m hoping that the things I learned will come in handy when our kids get to that stage in life. 

We hope life is treating you well.  See you the next time around J.
