Dads 50th Birthday

This past week was my dads 50th birthday. My mom wanted to through a big party for him but thats really not my dads style, so we had a little get together with my grandparents and my parents friends. I have started to fill out a couple of job applications for the fall. One of the jobs is in Idaho Falls, and the other is in Aberdeen.

Easter as fun we went up over to Morgan, UT to visit my Granny and Gramps last saturday. It was good to see them, it had been a while since I had seen my grandma. On sunday we did the easter thing with the Jones's. Morgans brother Court and his wife and baby came up so the whole family was there.
Below are a few pictures of my Dad in the sleeping bag that Me and Meagan got him for his birthday. Its suppose to be rated to -25 degrees, so he should stay toasty.

Still winter

The snow was completely gone up here in Pocatello until yesterday. We got about 6 inches of new snow, to help reminded us that winter is still not quite over. I took drive today up into the mountains that are east of Pocatello and they still have lots of snow. Hopefully with all the snow that we have been receiving this year the farmers will be able to have good crops. I went and talked to the people at Blackfoot High School that are going to give me letters of recommendation, and I am going to have them send in confidential letters. The confidential recommendation means that I will not know what the letter says about me, kinda scary, but I'm confident that they will give me good recommendations. I think future employers will like the fact that I had enough confidence in how I performed that I did not need to read and hand pick recommendations that were guaranteed to be positive.

Morgan has her short week of work this week so hopefully we will get to see more of each other. Her volleyball team did very well in the tournament this past weekend in Salt Lake. I believe they finished in the top 15. I am not certain how many teams there are but I want to say there are about 50 or so.

My sister had these on her blog and I thought that it would be kind of fun to try. Morgans is pretty good, she didn't even morph that much.

Trying Something New

Blogging seems to be the new "yuppie" thing to do, and I will try anything once so here we go. I have really enjoyed looking at my sister Meagans blog, as well as Morgans brother Court and his wifes.

Things here in Idaho are going great. The snow has finally started to melt and is almost completely gone here in Pocatello, but has a long ways to go in Malad. I have been busy getting all my stuff together and sent in to the state department of education, so I can hopefully land a teaching position here in town next fall (Morgan says that its about time I get a job :) ). This week I need to make the trip to Blackfoot and get a couple letters of recommendations to put in my portfolio. Other than that I am basically ready to start applying for jobs when they open up.

Morgan has been really busy between work, running her volleyball club, coaching, and playing in a city league. It hardly seems like I see her on the weeks that she has her 4 straight nights, of 12 hour shifts. The nice thing about her schedule is that every other week she has 5 days off so we still have lots of opportunities to go and do things together.

It amazes me that Morgan and I have been married now for two years. It seems like it was just the other day we were going to SLC to get married. However, if you were to ask her she might say its felt like at least two years. I have to admit I can be difficult to live with on occasion. Its been a great two years!
