Graduation! Something that seemed like it would never happen... finally did! I was SO incredibly proud of this guy. He had been in college nearly every semester year round since I met him. What he accomplished was HUGE. In high school he didn't do very well in math and didn't take calculus or higher level classes. He never would have guessed he would be an engineer someday! We are all so happy that it's behind us now and he is able to put his degree to good use.
Boat ride and fishing with dad on Ririe resevoir. She loves holding the pole, we're really going to have to get her one for next year. We will miss living in Idaho, we have so many good memories there.
We got invited by friends to go up to their cabin for Labor day weekend. We had fun exploring a big cave and going on some pretty hikes near Mt. St. Helens. There was even a place where you could climb in the space left by logs that were covered in lava flow. As the lava cooled the logs burned leaving these tunnels. Please note the picture of Lola Fern in the ferns :)
Phil took me on a tour of his work recently. The sheer size of this place blows you away. There are approxamately 1,400 employees at Genie. They build these machines in four airplane hangers! I wanted to take more pictures but I wasn't really supposed to. Phil has really enjoyed his job and the people he works with. He has even found that there are many Russian speaking Ukrainians that work here so he gets to speak Russian often which makes him happy. We are feeling really blessed to be here as a little family. We have been so welcomed by our ward and are making friends already. The Lord has been good to us.
