Well school has kept us soooooo busy, and as a result, I haven't blogged for 19 days! Ah! the world must be ending! Okay not really.
So I'll start recounting things to you, pretty much in chronological order. September 12th was our "one year" mark since we started dating! For some, it may seem a little weird to have your one year mark after you're already married… but hey, when you know who you want to/should marry, why wait? Michael is such an incredible blessing in my life. So, we went out to dinner at Macado's! yum. It was nice to get out.
This past weekend, we went to visit my in-laws! I wish I didn't have to use the word "in-laws" because that often carries a negative connotation… and it was so fun! I love them. In french, in-laws are called "la belle-famille", which is so much better, because it means "beautiful family". Family is beautiful! The francophones have it right.
So we went to the most family-oriented place on earth- the temple! Little Jeffrey is all grown up now- he received his endowments because he's going on a mission very soon! I love the temple. Especially being there with my family! 🙂
Well, the last few weeks I've been working out at the barn for one of my classes- I'm responsible for halter-breaking a calf. Mind you, this calf weighs about 500 pounds. For those who aren't into agriculture, halter-breaking is just getting the animal used to wearing a halter and walking with it on when you're on the other end. When you first start, their spirits are wild and they fight against you. So, you tie them up for awhile, and once they're used to being tied you can start trying to walk them in circles… usually walking turns into tug-of-war with an animal over 4 times your size! Haha.
Anyway, I decided to call him "Henry", but later found out his real name is "Hummer" (Henry is so much better…). He'll be sold at the end of October… you know, just in case you're interested in buying a Hereford bull.
So basically, that's all! You're all up to date on our fascinating life!
