Where is the summer going?

Wow. This term has really flown by. That's exciting though, because soon Jeff and I get to go on our honeymoon!

I am really looking forward to spending some time with Jeff without work and school. I'm really looking forward to not having to work, to clean, to cook, and to do homework. :)

Grandma Boling flies in on Friday night. She'll stay the weekend. I'm excited. :)

Shane Bies proposed to Ali (my cousin) last night. I wonder when their wedding will be. I hope we can go. I would love to see all of the family again.

Summer thoughts

I wonder how Amy is surviving California. She only has two more days. We've been playing phone tag, so I haven't been able to actually find out how she's doing.

Jeff finally went swimming in our apartment's pool. It was fun. He's really strong. I could just hang on to him instead of trying to tread water to stay afloat in the deep end.

We got to go babysitting together again yesterday at the Roush's house. It was fun to pretend to be parents with the kiddos. Jeff is going to be a really great dad. I hope I'm able to figure out how to balance everything. I'm so bossy and such a perfectionist. I hope I can figure out how to get my kids to like me, love me, and respect me, and somehow deserve to have them feel all those things to me.

I wore my retainer today for the first time in years. Haha.

Family Gone :(

So Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Amy, and Dan have come and gone. It was really nice having the family all around. It was wonderful to do a temple session with Mom, Dad, Jeff, and Grandpa. I don't know if I'll ever make it to the temple with Grandpa again, but it was a wonderful experience. I'm so grateful for all the temples in Utah.

Maria Haynie came home from her mission two weeks ago. She had been out for nine months. She started having brain seizures and was diagnosed with epilepsy. It is a miracle that she was able to stay as long as she did. Her medication stopped working, so she came home. I've been able to see her twice, and we hope to go to the temple together to do names that my great-aunt Fern gave me.
