How to become a Texan

1. Have a dozen spoonfuls of this yummy stuff.2. Eat at a real good BBQ
(we got ribs and brisket....mmmm)
3. Get put in jail4. Put on yer cowboy hat5. Watch the cattle walk down the street
(did you know their horns can be 6 ft. long?!?)We have been able to do quite a bit of exploring around Ft. Worth. We are trying to explore it all while we have the chance. Besides exploring we have doing a lot of this

We spend a lot of time at the Library. We don't have internet at our apartment and so this is where we get it. Jordan has some online classes that he is taking on top of his internship. I have been trying to learn Spanish through some classes the library offers online (but don't test me...yet!). I have also found a new love again of reading, if you haven't ever read any books by Shannon Hale you need to!
In our ward we have been called as Ward Missionaries and we LOVE IT! Every Tuesday we go out with the missionaries in our ward. We get to go to their appointments and listen and when we feel prompted we share our thoughts. We have taught so many people and have invited people to go to church with us. It is SO exciting! I truly believe it has strengthened our love in our marriage and our love for the gospel. We truly are blessed to have a prophet on the earth Today and the Book of Mormon to help us return to live with our Savior.


So our blog is somewhat like my journal and so every time I get on I have to back track. So stay with me.

I Graduated!
and this is how it feltThe day was perfect! I had so many supporters there and I am so grateful for that. I really could not have made it through college without my roommates, parents, family, and Jordan. Thank you for helping me to be a college graduate!My parents: one of the biggest supporters. I can still remember receiving packages galore from them with all of my favorites. They were always the first people I called after leaving the testing center (sometimes in tears), cheers from my dad left on the phone, and providing for my schooling. Thank you!Jordan: He has helped me to stay happy and understood the real meaning of "work hard, play hard". He has helped me to get up in the mornings, helped around the house so I could do homework, made me laugh, and always made my needs come first! Thank you!

It feels good to be done and teaching Kindergarten, which I will be able to do again next year at the same school. Life is good :)
