Loving Life in Lehi

I can't believe we have been in our house for over a month! We are loving everything about this new adventure. Our house is coming together and we even have grass now (with trees and bushes soon to come).

We are so excited for barbecues and bonfires this summer.

Aside from working on our house we are having fun making friends and getting to know our ward a little bit. We have already met so many nice people, it's great to feel so welcomed.

Last night we went out with some friends from our ward to a restaurant called "Porter's Place." It's an extremely old building on Main Street in Lehi. It used to be called the "Hot Spring Brewery Hotel" and it was ran by Porter Rockwell who was Joseph Smith and Brigham Young's bodyguard. Pretty sure the place was haunted, but the food was good and the atmosphere was fun.

In other news, the end of this school year has become extremely busy! I am happy to say that in 1.5 weeks I will have survived my first year of teaching! Everyone says the first year is the hardest, so I am happy that it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I had definite ups and downs, but I'll be honest - since I started teaching PE in January it has been smooth sailing. A couple weeks ago Rod escorted me to the end of the year 7th Grade Ball. At my school, they are very big on proper etiquette and ballroom dance and the year end ball is the culmination of everything they learned all year. They were short a few boys so Rod had to stand in and dance the whole night! Foxtrot, waltz, swing, salsa, etc. He was such a good sport. How cute is this picture?

So far this weekend has been really relaxing with my two favorite boys.

Life in Lehi is good!
