Here are a few odds & ends of photos & activities.
Mike's mom, Carol Richards, has been in Utah with her husband visiting with relatives (he's working at Fort Douglas). She had a couple of extra hours so she came up to Shriners to visit with us. We had a great time and we sure did appreciate the time she spent with us!
Yep - she has a fractured bone (fifth metatarsal on her left foot). Not a great way to start school seeing as how she is supposed to be dancing in the first ever assembly at Salem Hills High School tomorrow morning. She has to wear the boot for six weeks! No dancing for a while. She has been walking and dancing on it the best she could until we got her into a doctor. No go, kiddo.
This is the "hill" that Hans ran up -- all the way to the top and back within an hour and a half when they were out here last summer. I put this on to show him what it looks like now - a big fire covered the mountain - citizens of Spring Lake were evacuated. Luckily, the canal stopped the fire from spreading into the town. On the backside of this mountain is a scout camp, Camp Maple Dell. All scouts were evacuated (our ward was one group). You can see the green at the top. Sad.
