Josh and Kristie's Song

Video from August 11, 2007...2 years and four months later...
This is the song that my sister Kellie and our friend Vince wrote for our wedding present. You cannot really hear the song all that well due to the children making noise but it is still awesome! We're going to get them to record it so that we have a good copy.

We returned home Sunday night from a trip with Mom and Dad Wallace. We got to spend a couple days with them here and then drove with them to Boise. Conference was great. I missed a few talks, but it was especially nice to attend Priesthood session with Dad. We haven't been able to do that for a couple of years (I actually stayed awake this time, also).

Yesterday we had a break from students here at school. It was one of those relaxing teacher work days. Today it was back to work with kids and all. 7th grade is not much of a challenge now that I have done it a couple rounds. This year the 9th grade is the stress, but only because it is new to me. Once I am organized it is really nice to work with them. They are so much more mature than what I am used to, and our students are very respectful. I never have a problem. I think Kristie is enjoying her stage combat class. She tells me about all the men she gets to beat up. That and other classes keep her busy.

We hope everyone is well. We love you all!

So we are both back in school and getting used to this lifestyle again. I am teaching 9th and 7th grade this year, and Kristie is taking a full load of classes at BYU. She is working less than before and taking 16 credits. It makes for a boring home life because all she wants to do is study and all I want to do is plan lessons.

We wanted to include a couple of pictures from our recent trip to Zions Park and St. George. We were there for a total of three days. We went to Snow Canyon on the 10th, Zions and a Shakespeare play on the 11th, and Kolob Canyon on the 12th. When in Zions we found a little friend. He was particularly fond of Kristie. She was okay until he wasn't satisfied just being on her shoe. He started up her leg and that was when she knew she had had enough.

Yellowstone July 2009

Post Family's Yellowstone Trip

Two weeks after spending time in the Yellowstone area with the Wallace Clan, we were back up there again with the Post Family. This photo was taken on the steps of my (Kristie) uncle's cabin that we used in Mack's Inn. We had a blast!

Katie and Kurt took their canoe up and we pulled out one of Uncle Greg's canoes to use. We floated the river one afternoon and stopped for a little dip in the river at a swimming spot we found. The water was freezing until we got used to it and it was so much fun. After getting back into the canoes and heading back down the river, Melissa, who was steering in the back of the canoe I was in, squealed "I've got a leech!" I looked back to see her foot by my head with a leech making its merry, slithery way up her leg. Kurt pulled their canoe up by us and offered to pull it off for her. Melissa turned her head and said "I'm not gonna look," when Kurt pinched the unattached side of the leech and it came right off. Luckily, it had not embedded its suckerish face into her skin. It was fantastic! I giggled about it the rest of the way down, grateful it wasn't me but also paranoid that I had a friend of my own; ends up, I didn't. Phew!
