Weekend with Family

We enjoyed having William, Kenzie, and Skyler in Ukiah this weekend. They came up from Morgan Hill for a visit; William ended up attending his 20th year high school reunion. Sheri Bradshaw also came to Ukiah for the reunion. Kenzie will stay in Ukiah for a couple of weeks. Kenzie was with us on the weekend and will be at our house this week during the day while Bruce and Marlene work.

Saturday we saw Jacob and Austin who had just returned from their weeklong Duty to God camp. They were excited about climbing Mount Lassen. Bonnie and Greg met them at our 24th of July picnic (held on the 19th).

Exciting News!

Jim and Cheryl just called tonight (Wed. July 16th) so Jim could ask for Dad’s approval and blessing to marry Cheryl. In the morning they leave for Salt Lake City to attend Jim’s brother’s wedding.

They already purchased their rings last Saturday, have been considering the date for their wedding (possibly either Sat. Oct. 11th or Sat. Oct. 25th), have looked at wedding dresses online (Cheryl will try on dresses in Utah this weekend), and started their invitation list. They are planning on being married in the LA Temple followed by a reception in a courtyard outside their stake center.

In the new order of things, however, they’re not engaged until Jim has the ring from the jeweler to give to Cheryl and formally proposes to her. All of these events started snowballing last week. We’ll have to get the details from Cheryl later.

I’ll be glad when they’re “formally” engaged so the whole family can know the exciting news.

Trips to Eureka

Dad and I have been up to Eureka twice in the last couple of weeks. Austin was ordained a deacon on Sunday June 29th, and Jacob was ordained a teacher today Sunday July13th on his birthday.

Bonnie returned yesterday from a week at Young Women camp in Oregon. The boys are attending the Boy Scout Duty to God campout with the Ukiah stake this coming week. We'll drive them to Ukiah when we return tonight; I hope all the boys' gear fits into the Honda.

Greetings from Mom

It's time for me to see what this blogging world is all about since most of the family is now writing to a blog. Actually I'm not going to tell you yet that I'm doing this. I need to see how it works out.
