Back to School

Glen starts teaching on Monday. He is a little stressed out thinking he is not physically ready, as in, his classroom is not ready. Also, it seems he has an electric guitarist in his band class.... He's not quite sure what to do with that. He is amazing and will do an exceptional job even if he doesn't have all of the resources he thinks he needs.
We are still waiting for callings in our new ward. Another couple moved in the same week as us, if not later, and they already have callings. We do have a speaking assignment for the last week of August. I'm glad they gave us so much time to prepare but I fear I will most likely wait until the last minute anyway. I don't know why I think that, but I know myself pretty well.
This month is going to be very exciting! This Saturday, my nephew, Tayen, is getting baptized! Then the next day, my cousin is giving his homecoming talk. He is a stud and I can't wait to see him! He served in the same mission as Glen so they may have some families and areas in common that they will need to discuss. Then, of course, the next Sunday, we are speaking in church. Hopefully by then we will have callings.

In the meantime, we are reminded each Sunday of how awesome our ward in Cedar is. We miss it. We had friends and people who cared about us. Although, the bishop here did call Glen on his way to the church to see if he wanted to go practice the organ which was extremely thoughtful. We were touched. And we are often reminded of the beauty and weather of our beloved Cedar City. It's hot here. The end.

And Cedar misses you three as well. My husbands whole family lives in Mesa/Gilbert/Queen Creek. If you run into any Mabb's they ARE related. CLOSELY related. Probably a brother or sister in law. Tell them hello. We are the only ones NOT in that area.

Your house looks beautiful, your baby is SO cute, Glen's job sounds fun, and you get to work from home. SOunds really awesome for you guys! :) Congratulations!!
