Random happenings in July

Well other then the 4th we did have a few fun adventures.
The first was that Collin was blessed on July 5th. It is so
nice to have so many family members who hold the priesthood
and are worthy to use that blessing. A lot of family members were
able to be there since it was the holiday weekend so it was fun to
share that with them. We didn't get a picture of
him in his outfit but this is one at the lunch after, isn't he so cute!

I finally finished up with school for the semester!
Whoever had the idea of summer school should be hurt...
Whoever had the idea of online classes should be hurt...
and Whoever thought that we should combine the two should be hurt!
I have never been a big school girl, so why I decided to take so many classes in the summer I am still not sure about! Not only that, but I am a huge procrastinator. I only do things right before they are due, so when my online class said everything was due on 7-27 by 11:59 p.m. I figured I was fine to wait a little while. It only showed 4 assignments and 4 test so I thought I would be fine. I was so wrong! One of those assignments was a general assignment that had 15 assignments in one! I started the class a week before it was due, and I finished at 11:55 p.m. on 7-27. I am pretty sure that I will never do an online class again!
Also this month I decided I would apply for an internship with Kassidy.
It was very last minute and so when I called I was lucky to getan interview on the very last day they were holding 1st interviews. For the second interview Kassidy and I had to go up together, and on the way home we decided we would just have fun and do whatever we wanted. It was one of the best trips I have ever had to Salt Lake!
First we decided to go over to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house.
I had never been inside of a temple, except for the baptisimal font, and it was so BEAUTIFUL!!!
I really was so happy that we went, because it is something that I don't know if I will be able to go to another open house for years!

We also decided that we would stop at the lavender fields. I had always wanted to stop and so had Kassidy so we decided why not! It was just before sunset when we got there and the lighting was perfect! We had so much fun running, and jumping throughout the field and taking tons of pictures to go with it. After we were done there we decided to drive over to the lake right by it and walk around there as well. It was so fun to just relax and take the side roads. It also really made me want to do a road trip sometime. Having all the time to just stop and view anything you want sounds like so much fun!

Well back to the internship! After the 2nd interview they told us we would know in about 2 weeks if we had got it or not. And boy did they keep us waiting forever!!! But when they finally did call we found out....WE GOT IT!!!! We are being sent to St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands! We have a week of training in Salt Lake starting on 8-17, then we fly out on 8-22 and will be there until the begining of January. I can't believe that something I was so last minute about turned out to be such a great opportunity! And the fact that I get to go with my best friend is amazing! Once I get over there I promise I will try to keep the blog updated on all of our adventures!
