Eric is still traveling for his job and gets to see exciting places. He has been to Hawaii 5 times this year. He has also accepted more responsibility at work learning new classes to teach. Brandi was able to go to Idaho with him again for a week. He is going back to college for his Master’s in Business.
Brandi has finished up her Master’s degree in Special Education and was able to get her Student Teaching done this year. She had a great experience with teaching in her own classroom and had a great Co-Operating teacher working with her. She made new friends and hopes to be able to keep up her friendships. She is hoping to get a teaching job at the beginning of the New Year. Brandi was able to go to Idaho with Eric for a week in March. It gave her a chance to see many different temples that are in Idaho. Brandi had a chance to go to Texas for the first time. It wasn’t for a great reason but got to meet my cousin Dawna’s husband and children. It was a hard trip on her and glad that there was family there with her.
Jake is 11 and in the 5th grade now and is at a new school this year. He is now a foot shorter than his dad and almost as tall as his mother. He tried out for the school Honor Choir and actually made it. He is excited and his first performance is this month. He earned is Arrow of Light and Webeleo’s badge in Cub Scouts. He is now in the New Boy Patrol in Boy Scouts. This is his last year in Primary and pretty soon will be a priesthood holder.
Trent is 9 and in the 3rd grade now and is at a new school this year. He is growing like a weed now and is just a little over 4 feet tall. He just recently earned his Wolf badge in Cub Scouts. He has adjusted well to the new school and enjoys being in the 3rd grade.
As a family we have been able to take many different trips. We started the year off with going to Flagstaff, Arizona for Brandi to be able to take a test for her schooling. After she was done with the test we spent some great time being able to play in the snow and going sledding for the first time. Another big trip that we took was up to Colorado to see Eric’s brother Chris and his family and little boy Adam get blessed. This was a fun trip to be able to spend time with everyone and to have all the cousins around to be able to play together. We had a chance to be able to take some great pictures of everyone too. We took a couple of trips to Utah. One was for Brandi’s cousin’s wedding and the next one was to visit with Eric’s brother Tim and family. We took a trip to Ventura to help Eric’s dad fix his Grammy’s bathroom floor. We also went to the Ventura Fair and I meet up with a friend that I meet earlier in the year.
We hope that this finds you all doing well this holiday season.
