Quick Update

Life is good:
1) Kelsey got accepted into a Masters program at Texas Women's University (TWU)! She will be pursuing an arts or fine arts degree in dance. She starts in the fall. We are very excited about that.
2) I got my car window fixed, $160 later. It wasn't too bad...lesson learned I suppose.
3) It has been 103-105 degrees everyday of the week with the forecast indicating the weather will continue to be like this for a while. If you live where it's not this hot, enjoy it for us.
4) I am liking my job alright. College to the full-time grind is a hard transition. I'm surviving.
5)Kelsey has a birthday on Saturday. She'll be 21 and alcohol will finally be legal ;).

Pics of the Robbery :(

Learning the Hard Way...

This week has been a tough one to say the least. First off, it wasn't too easy to come home from the family and great weather in Salt Lake to the stifling heat at home. But more than that, we had some unexpected (and unwelcome) experiences this week as well.

On Thursday my friend Emily and I went to the Rec Center to work out like we do every weekday. We made the mistake of putting our iPods down (which we had never done before that day) and within probably a 4 minute time period between checking on them, they were stolen... They watched the security tape and could see the woman who took them, but unfortunately couldn't identify her. She snuck past the front desk while staff wasn't looking (with her young daughter), sat down next to our iPods, put them in her purse and took off.... yeah...

Then, this morning as we walked outside to drive to church, we were met by two police officers asking if we were the owners of the silver Camry with the window busted in. We told them what had been taken (pretty much just our brand new Garmin) and they're going to file a report. It took about 2 hours to get everything cleaned up (Grant fixed up the window with some leftover plastic stuff) and now we need to get a new window. We had stored the GPS was in the glove box but left the cord plugged in so they must have been looking for that.

So, basically we're left this week iPod-less, Garmin-less and passenger side window-less. Luckily we didn't lose anything we can't live without (beside the window) but we'll certainly be more careful from now on about where we leave things....
