OK, he didn't arrive in this car, but our exchange student Felix came for 2 weeks. Porter met Felix in Germany this summer & they became great friends. We were so lucky to have him be a part of our family, we only wish it was longer. Felix, we love you! Come back soon!
Felix made it to our ward Halloween Party as our German Mexican!
He carved pumpkins with us.
He was puzzle solving with Ellie & Max after receiving a box of Krispy Kreme donuts with a riddle. Felix was asked to Sadies & Zuka ate the donuts!
He & the boys dressed up for the dance.
We all went to Park City to see Olympic Park.
We rode the chairlift to ride the Alpine slide.
Max was a great passenger.
Making a go on the bobsled. Doesn't go very fast on the concrete! Thanks for making your stay memorable Felix, we love you!
We got to take the girls & Grammy with us for our first ever visit to the Santa Ana Zoo!
A cute train ride!
A great picnic spot!
At Pumpkin City the greatest was the tractor driving! Notice Ty's knees & who would have guessed that Max would have been such a great driver? He dodged all of the other tractors like an expert, grandpa would be proud!
Football, birthdays, football, soccer, football, birthdays...etc. We snuck in a couple of days at Lake Powell, a quick trip to California for a few of us, and maybe some homework.
June & July
Wow, after 12 days in California doing all of the beach things imaginable, what more could you want? Oh wait, that was only the first week of summer, we have so much more to come! Yes, German Exchange Students to show a good time, a trip to the farm in Missouri and plenty of football, tennis, swimming and scout camps! Plenty of fun!
Since May has ended I guess I should put it on the board! We had a busy month and it ended with school being out for the summer. We had lacrosse & soccer, a quick trip to Montana, a few mission call openings and warm weather. Summer looks to be full of fun!
Are we already midway through the month? It has been a busy one so far. Porter's Eagle court of Honor, Conference weekend, Easter, Spring Break and visitors galore! We even spent a few days as visitors ourselves! Maybe the month will slow down so I can blog about it...I doubt it!
The month to work on bathrooms. When I made a goal to do the bathroom this winter I didn't realize how close to the wire I would take it. Just in time for Spring I have new floors in 2 bathrooms and a fresh new space! Thanks to all who helped. May all projects get finished on time!
January & February
It seems like we waited forever for snow & then each storm came on a Sunday. We always find something to do to fill the time, including skiing, watching the aerials competition at Deer Valley, sledding, and even a weekend in CA for Tanner & mom. Never a dull moment, even in a meager snow year!
