Updates!

So, I am at work right now reading all the blogs I check and nobody has updated a lot lately. Everyone is busy with summer fun and work and life. I figured I would blog too. I can't post pictures, but hey- my life is exciting.

First off- Thank You's are in order to my good friend Shauna for being our real estate agent in Provo. We are still looking for a place to live when we come home and Shauna has been more than wonderful at calling places for us, and going over to look at them,take pictures,and send them my way. THANKS SHAUNA!!

This week- we move out of our Jingan apartment (the owners who were graciously letting us live there for FREE sold the place) to live somewhere else. This will be fun to get to know another part of Shanghai, and will be a good trial run to see if all of our souvenirs fit into our suitcases. Cross your fingers for us!

I have found several potential jobs!! I found several awesome secretary type jobs in Provo that pay really well and include benefits (we REALLY need benefits) and another is a Teaching Job!! It is in Alpine School District and would be amazing if I got it. Its at a middle school, teaching FACS. Right up my alley. I totally want a middle school too. So, I need everyone's fingers crossed and prayers sent out.

I sent in the ok to go to my high school reunion. What?! Have I seriously been graduated for 5 years? I am still a senion in high school!! Trust me, I look like one for sure. As I student taught at Timpview, teachers would stop me in the copy room and would tell me that student aides aren't allowed in. Yeah, thanks! I would rather look young than old though! Its going to be weird. I have no idea who will be there (I keep in touch with most of the people I wanted to). At least I have my hottie hubby and my College Diploma to show for the past 5 years! Woo- go me!!

We come home from China in just under 3 weeks! Its gone by so quickly. We are trying to squeeze everything in before we go back. We're also planning a last hurrah trip to Guelin (google image it- its beautiful) so I hope that works out!!

LOVE reading about your summer, lives,and family! See you all in 3 weeks!

Yay! Almost home! The dang reunion was planned over the opener of the hunt, which is like a national holiday for most guys so I don't know if I'll hit up the reunion or not. Funny though, I feel like its been a lot longer than 5 years that we've been graduated!

Yay!! Come home and play with me in Utah County Land! Must admit, I'm getting used to it but it's still not the most friendly place...

Good luck with the jobs that is not the funnest in the world. I can't believe it has already been 5 years! Don't think I am going to make it to the reunion though so let me know how it goes.

You are so cute... Let me know when you get back in the states and I would love to help you figure out your credential file. Have fun the next couple of weeks you will miss China so much when you leave.

Please write a good blog post about the reunion. I'm curious how it will be, but not curious enough to actually attend.
