It's finally here!

I finally received my student teaching placement. I will be in Kearns, Utah teaching at Oquirrh Hills Elementary School in the 3rd grade. I am excited about it! I had a feeling all along I would be in 3rd or 4th and here I am. I am ready for the challenge and the fun that this experience will be.

Jon Schmidt

Ron sent me this email about Jon Schmidt and his new song that is Taylor Swift's Love Story meets Coldplay's Viva la Vida. It is so cool! I love all of his music. He is very entertaining. I saw him in concert up here a few years ago and loved it! This song is very interesting and creative. You should check it out!

His website also has playlists that you can listen to. I love it! His website is

Seattle Sounders

Last Saturday, July 11 I went to a Sounders game with the Singles branch here. It was interesting but fun. It was my first MLS game and a good one at that. The Sounders played Houston Dynamos and won 2-1. Houston scored in the first half and then Sounders scored one in the first and one in the second half. After half time I decided I should take a few pictures I took one of the game as a whole and then as I was taking my camera out one of the Sounders players went to go score a goal. I totally had it and when I went to look at it a girls head that was walking by was in the picture and I missed it! One of the Sounders players bicycle kicked it into the goal. Overall it was a good game and it was very crowded. The fans there are crazy and really into it! It was great. After the game I saw this older man who was wearing a bright green pimp suit! It was a highlight after the game! I took a picture on my phone.

After the game a big group of us went to Cheesecake Factory. It was delicious. Even the food and of course the cheesecakes. I split a meal with a friend and then ordered a lemon raspberry cheesecake. It was heavenly and I have been craving it since I have had it. I will definately have to go and get some when I move to Utah. It will be a lot closer.

The New Way to Lose Weight

The last week was quite an interesting week. Last Thursday Greg and his family came up to visit. Friday I went to work got off at 12:30 then came home and had a headache and a really bad stomach ache. As Friday continued on I was sitting outside watching Dad and Greg paint the house and continued to feel pretty crummy. Come Friday night and Saturday I definately had the flu. Not only was it over a holiday and family was visiting but it lasted for quite a few days. Come yesterday I was finally able to eat and keep it down or in. Needless to say I am 10 pounds lighter and am feeling much better now. However, Greg's kids have it now. Sorry guys!

I also have an update on student teaching placement. I still don't know but should be sent to me end of next week! Hopefully they send it on time and I get it before I leave. I am so ready to know! All this waiting better be worth it.
