  1. UGH, seminary. I don't think I'd have survived had I not grown up in Utah. Seriously. Hats off to the rest of the church who get up and do it at the crack of dawn!

  2. i can't believe the BABY is all grown up.

  3. I was SO DONE with high school by the time we attended our last graduation. It was worse than if I'd been going myself! I celebrated when I attended my last parent teacher conference. I loved them during the grade school years, but by high school I hated them. To sit on bleachers, in line, for 3 hours to have a 2 minute interview with a 22-year-old teacher who held my kid's future in her grading be told that my genius child was anything but a genius? Who needs that?


thanks for making my day with your thoughts...
