My Man

Drew and I sometimes have "build up sessions," where we just compliment one another for a certain amount of time. I was thinking that Drew was due for one, and I wanted everyone else to hear it. I love the picture, it's right after he rocked his 800.

So here is the list:
· SOOO good looking
· Athletic
· Smart
· Doesn’t stress.. EVER
· Helps me to not stress
. Always wants to have a spiritual conversation
· Never in a bad mood
· Takes care of all the “man” jobs around the house
· Gets along with everyone
· Loves people for who they are
· Gives people the benefit of the doubt
· Optimistic
· Active
· Competitive (which I like)
. Can figure anything out... it doesn't matter what it is
· Never spends money, but let’s me
· Kills spiders for me
· Determined
. Funny
· Makes me laugh
. Confident
· Loves me inspite of my flaws
· Understands that I am a girl
. Knows me better than I know myself
· Rational
. Awesome track runner (I don't know how it's physically possible to be that fast)
· Not critical
. Loves kids
. Truly loves to serve
. The most unselfish person ever
· Never gets mad (I seriously have only seen him upset like twice… in 7 years)
· Loves to dance
· Loves his family
· Well rounded in every aspect
· The best person I know

I thought I would update everyone on the past few weeks. Because I know you have been dying to know.

Well, my parents came out last weekend and we had a blast. The boys played golf I got to go to breakfast and shop with my mom, and then we all went to the BYU football game (and did some other fun stuff too). I am pretty sure my parents learned the fight song, and got a taste of BYU. It was just so nice for them to come out. It was a short weekend, but so fun.
I love BYU football. I am really not a big football person, but the games are such a blast. That's a picture of the dance they do before games start.

On another note, school is going well. I think that the beginning of the year is harder than any other time. It's been pretty crazy. Last week Drew was at cross country camp, and it actually worked out. I was at the school most days from 7:15 a.m. until 8:15 p.m. It's calmed down a little bit this week.

My kids are pretty darn cute. The first few days I was thinking oh geez these kids are a lot different third graders (which is true) but I have already grown to love them so much. The thing about teaching is you never know what a day will hold. The things that happen are so unexpected. I have already had so many stories that I've shared with Drew each night. Sometimes I just find my self laughing at night thinking about the things they say or do.

I think it's going to be a good year.

Lastly, I just had to share that I joined a work out class at BYU. It's not an aerobics class exactly. It's like this abs, cardio, free weights class. I think it will be really fun. The girls in the class are really nice. I have always joked around about classes, when I hear the music going and see all these women jumping around.
But, I decided that it was a good choice for me because once the after school program starts and winter comes my motivation to work out is going to drop. I am also glad that it forces me to leave the school. Otherwise it's hard to leave work undone. So just picture me in my cool work out outfit doing some high leg kicks and dancin to the music baby!
P.S. Don't you love this picture... classic
