So this Labor day weekend Mike came down from Logan. It was really good to see him. Friday we made some amazing cookies and hung out with his family. Saturday we went to the Manti temple. It was great to just spend a day with each other. I think every adventure we take he meets some of my crazy family members. This time he meet my Uncle Mike and Aunt Maria. They are some of my favorites. We talked for a little bit and then headed home and had a BBQ with his family. Sunday we went to church i played the musical number which if found out about on friday so it was kind of last min. my brother being the brat that he is asked " how long did you practice that song?" (cause i did mess up a little) i said " this morning" he quickly tried to cover himslef and said " oh that wasn't bad for practicing just this morning." so yeah... I went over to my grandmas for sunday night and will be here till monday. But my little cousin Caleb is so funny. He is four and the funniest little guy ever. we were up on the property and he saw a moth and said " look at this pretty butterfly. that is right your so pretty mister butterfly." i started to laugh so hard. He just looked at me and said " don't you think he is pretty." i just said "yes he is very pretty." Later we were going into my grandmas house. I asked him what my name was and he said "rissa" I asked him what Kacylias name was and he said "rissa 2" it was pretty funny. it's funny my cousins don't look anything like me because i am so dark and they are so "white" well at least the ones on my dads side... ha ha

WOW it has only been the first week and a half of School. I already have a quiz on Friday on the first 3 chapters in Anatomy, A 2 min presentation in corrections, and my volleyball girls have their first came next Tuesday. I already knew it would be a rough semester but not like this... My Monday .. holy cow! i had classes till 1 and then worked till 4:45, I went to volleyball at 5 till 6:30. i had a meeting at 6:30 for YSA and then i had to go back to the JR high for a parent meeting at 7:00 then to a block party that i sadly had to miss.. but i still got to have stake from the party. I was proud of myself for not wanting to kill someone or something by the end of the day. I don't mind staying busy but when it is one thing right after the other and you have to go across town do it.. things get way to heck-tic. I did get a run in so that is always good.
This summer has been the best summer ever. I went to working full time to earn more money for school and decided that i wanted to make this summer fun to make up for all the work i would be doing. I met a great guy (Mike) and we started dating in April. ( so i guess it's been the best spring and summer) Just so everyone knows how Mike and i met it's kind of a weird story. Mike and I are both from Price and we both know some of the same people. Last summer i went back east with the seniors from my stake and some parents went also. The parents i happen to ride the last streach with were also his friends parents (confussing i know.) We started talking about dating and she brought up Mike. I thought that would be cool, dating an older guy that i had seen around and kind of new about, so i told her talk to him and have him ask me on a date. Thinking nothing of it for a while (say about march of '08) we became friends on the wonderful internet site Facebook. After commenting back and forth for a while i gave him my number. we started texting and then he came down one weekend from Logan (where he is going to school). He asked me on a date and we went to dinner and back to his house for a movie. It was fun and the next couple of weekends that he came down we hung out and went on dates. He then moved down here for the summer to work at Pro-Rehab because another job fell through, thank goodness, that would have sent him to Iowa. We spent many fun filled nights together through out the summer. We went to the Manti Pageant with my best friend, Went to the Zoo with Daisy, Adventured to Provo and SLC, and went to Greg and Ivy's wedding. We share many inside jokes together and many interesting moments. By the end of the summer we had became each others best freinds and found it really hard to leave each other. The funny thing is we were in the same ward my first year at CEU and we didn't really talk. the only time we talked to each other was when he asked to get my records. He also helped with Track my Senior year but i was doing running and jumping while he did throwing events. But here is to My best Friend, my turbo, and my Mikey. These next few Semesters will be rough with out you but i know we can do it. Best of Luck in school and I'll see ya when i see ya. Love you
It's that time of year once again. WOW! surprisingly i am really excited to get back to school. I don't have to work all day anymore i am doing a lot more then that so it is nice. I am taking 15 credit hours so we will see how busy i am. I am going to be a loser this semester though but with good reason. 2 of my really good friends are going on their missions. (Bradey Wilde to South Africa and Stephen Vogel to Independence Missouri) My really good Lauren is going to SLCC and My Mikey is going up to USU for his last year. and my best friend Megan is getting married. with them all leaving that just means more time to study and less or not as much partying. so the wonderful classes that i am taking shouldn't be to hard. I have Anatomy plus the lab, Geology, Music, Intro to Corrections, and service learning ( I'm coaching volleyball! it's awesome). Our family school pic. Every year we always go out on the back deck and get our pics together. don't mind me i has going to work so i was in my scrubs.
One weekend (august 3rd) Mike and i went up to the Provo temple. it was so much fun. we did baptisms it was really cool. Mike then meet my amazing cousin Kiarra. She is one of my favorites. The first words out of her mouth to him were "Your tall." sounds like something i said the first time we talked. No kidding. We then made our way up to Salt Lake to have lunch with Megan and Steven. It was nice to sit and talk to them. They are funny but can go off the walls sometimes. Mike and I went to see the Joseph Smith movie and walked around temple square. I love the temple it is so amazing. On the way home we Stopped to see the New Draper Temple that is being built. we got lost getting there but we got there which is all that matters. I think Mike learned not to follow my directions. (but i did get us to the Provo temple with ease.)

Our Next Adventure was going to Greg and Ivy's Wedding (august 9th). It was really nice and really hot. Kenna and I went to Ivy's to Help with grand kids and then went to the temple for a few pictures and then to Scott and Amie's new apartment. It's little, I wish i had a picture because a few of the doors were to little for mike to walk through. We went to the lunch in and had some amazing food. Mikes parents came to get us (we drove up Amie's car) so we had to stuff mike in the back seat with me. I felt so bad for him. he had to sit side-ways for 3 hours. his poor back and legs. lucky for me i had a pillow (mike) the whole way home. all in all it was a great trip.
