Home Stretch

We're on the home stretch--the last 3 or 4 weeks of our summer, and the last year here at BYU! We're much more excited about the latter than the former, but we will be grateful when things cool down a bit in autumn.

It was wonderful to see Mom and Rachel this week. Rachel is about to start her first year at Dixie State, and they stayed with us two nights before driving down to St. George. She seems excited to go, and we think she's going to do a great job. The only thing she's going to have a hard time with is keepin' those boys away!

Yesterday we went to the library to check out a book. Stephanie and I have been reading together this summer, and we recently finished To Kill a Mockingbird. It's fun to read together, and I haven't done hardly any casual reading since before my mission. Anyway, we're about to start A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain. It should be fun.

We love our new piano, we love our cute giggly baby, we love the warm summer (when the heat doesn't kill us), and we love you all. Have a great week!

Good luck! I'll have to come see your piano some time. Hope Heather's Happy!

Have you seen the movie of "To Kill a Mockingbird" with Gregory Peck? It's excellent! If your library doesn't have a copy to check out, you can watch it the next time you visit us. :) (We own it.) I read ACYIKA'sC a long time ago; I remember liking it, but that's all I remember. Enjoy! We love you!
