I have been slacking in the writing blogs department. Here's the new news.

J and I both finished our semesters with A's all around. Impressive! We studied all the time and it was magical.

J has started an internship at North Country dental clinic. They work hand in hand with A.T. Still, and seeing as how he's applying to their dental school, we think it will be a nice touch. Added on to his externship he did at Winslow Indian Health Care, he'll be around 1300+ of public health hours.

I've been working for a local dentist and it is the best thing for me. I am able to still go to school full time (and get A's!)  and work enough to pay for school and the freakishly high rent of Flagstaff. I also started nannying for the dentist and his wife so that has been quite an adventure.

I'm doing another winter intersession class. They are so worth not having a break from school.

I taught the Sunbeams all year and now they are all grown up. . . or at least a good 4 inches taller, each. Now I'll be back where I started with the 9-10 year old class. I'm nervous because I'm used to teaching a ten minute lesson and singing the rest of the time, and I don't think that will fly with "cool", older kids.

J is still teaching every fourth Sunday, but really he teaches about 2-3 times a month. It's exhausting, but now our ward is going to meet later this year so we are at 11!!! Woot!

Lastly, a funny story.

Jake and I were walking into the grocery store and he saw a clump of snow and thought he would kick it. . . but it was ice. And he stubbed his toes. It was hilarious!

WOW you have been so busy. That's impressive. How long until you graduate?

He didn't bust any toes did he? (from kicking the ice) Cuz' that would SUCK!

Dude. Words cannot describe how stoked I am to have 11:00 church this year. I'm so sick of waking up at the buttcrack of dawn to go to church (because yes, 8:00 is the buttcrack of dawn on a weekend).

We just moved from 1 to 9, which is better than 1 but not as good as 11, in my opinion.

Also, tell Jake I sympathize with him. I once kicked at a piece of metal and it turns out it was cemented into the ground.

Stop being a slacker.. Some of us have nothing better to do that check your blog twice daily! Anyway, congrats on the straight A's.. Seriously, that's huge! And Jake and I really want to move back to Flag but that ridiculous rent is really holding us back. It sucks big time. I'm sorry!
