Not only has work been busy, but so has life after work. On Wednesday night Jim and Ammon went with me to attend a work BBQ in South Fork (up Provo Canyon) that corresponds each year in August with the annual University Conference. We got steak and salmon and lots of other goodies in that meal. Fall has come very early this year as shown on the mountains at South Fork.
These two will be picked some time this week.
Ammon seems to be enjoying school. He is taking English, Seminary, Men's Choir and photography plus the resource classes he is taking (many just to do assessments at the beginning of the year). Next semester he will take health and science in addition to choir and seminary. He was very nervous before going to school but he has adjusted nicely and seems happy. He will see the orthopedist on Sept. 10 to see if his arm has healed. He hates the sling and is anxious to get it off.
We received an e-mail this week from the BYU Football team informing us that they had 3 tickets for us to take Ammon to a game. We will go to the Weber State game on Sept. 8. Ammon will get to go out onto the field through the tunnel where the players come from and he'll get to watch various activities before the game starts, including a real-live version of the Haaka which the team does before every game.You never get to see that on TV so it will be so much fun for him. We are really excited to go to the game.
Life is busy and we are happy. Kaitlin moved out last week and is excited for school to start tomorrow. My knee is getting stronger and stronger every day. Last week, for the first time in 9 months, I woke up and looked down at the knee and said, "It doesn't hurt right now." I have a lot of hope that it will fully heal within the next couple of months. It's been a long 9 months and I'm anxious to never think about this knee again.
