I finally got the family picture that Merril took scanned into the computer. I hope the resolution is still good. We've done a few things since I last posted. We went to Laura's graduation which was really good. I didn't get any pictures though. Grandpa Evans took some and sent up. I'll have to scan them too. This last Thursday after work Dawna and I went to Meadows and enjoyed a few nights at JoAnn and Terry's home there. It was very peaceful. The weather was great. We read and played games, tore down a little fence, went on nice walks. I did take some pictures but it was the old fashioned way with a film camera so I will have to get them developed. We got home Saturday about noon and mowed the lawns and water and weeded the Garden. Cameron, Lesley, and Alexis came over about 4:oo and that evening we went out to Owyhee Ward for a birthday party for Lesley's Grandmother Myrtle Smith who is 98. It was a lot of fun seeing lots of friends.

I was looking forward to getting a lot done this week but my body had other plans. I've been going to a PT to improve flexibility and range of motion. I've been getting better and better until Sunday when a lot of the pain came back. Well today I know what the pain is. I had another kidney stone. I went to work and didn't feel good so I came home. Within a hour I called my mother and off to the hospital I went. I thought I could weather it out at home. I guess I'm not the tough. The nurse stuck me three times before she got the IV in. Then she didn't draw enough blood, so the lab tech came back and stuck me a fourth time. The stone passed while I was there at the hospital. The CT scan shows I've one more still in the kidney. I hope it goes through without much trouble. So now I am a day behind on getting stuff done at work before we leave this weekend for Laura's Graduation. Oh well. Work will always be there.

Wow I've been a slacker. Oh well. These pictures are from the week and weekend of Davids missionary farewell. He is in Cwmbran (pronounced cumbran) Wales. It is north of Newport. He is doing well and loves what he is doing.
I have a great family picture taken by Merril and will post it when I can scan it in. Life has been busy although a little quiet. I have thought about the day when all the kids were gone quite often and did not look forward to it at all. However after this weekend at different places with lots of children it is a lot more peaceful. Unfortunately when kids travel they sometimes are a little cranky which is to bad. I still love it though when they come to visit and I am never ready for them to leave.
