I'm Back!

Sorry about that. What was intended as a little break turned into six months! Thanks to the encouragement of all my friends and family, I'll let you know how things have been going.


We had so much fun this past summer and fall since I have felt like being active again.

For our anniversary in July we went to This is the Place Heritage Park. We walked all around the town, rode the train, explored all the tiny pioneer cabins and the beautifully restored buildings. It was all up and down the hillside but it didn't bother me, what a surprise.

Then accompanied our daughter, Kristin for her birthday and we enjoyed Snowbird. I got on the alpine slide 3 times and the zip line down the mountain twice. Felt like a kid again!

See the beautiful garden Robert and I had this year, yummy vegetables to enjoy too. It was so much fun to pick the many varieties of tomatoes we grew and tons of squash and garlic. Want some?

Since I couldn't find any support group to my liking for diabetes, I started my own at the Riverton Senior Center.

It was a lot of fun to visit with others who want to stop diabetes in it's tracks. We encouraged each other and got help from some professionals so it wasn't just the blind leading the blind. It really wasn't hard to put it together.

We went camping for the first time in 20 years up in the Uintas with our kids and grand-kids. We saw deer and mosquitoes up close, what a treat!

In the fall I started attended the Silver Sneakers class again at the rec center, my funnest way to exercise. Good friends, good music, good instructors!

Then we got our mission call to serve an inner-city mission for 18 months. This was my secret goal for the year.

Our family has turned into an energetic bunch since our focus has changed into doing things rather than watching things. More to come!
