Catch Up Post

This post may go on and and on and I try and catch up on the various and sundry events that have happened. And since this is my only attempt at a journal, I will spew them out for posterity's sake.

Diana graduated from Dare in December. I came accross the picture of the boys at their dare graduations and so I thought I would post those as well.

Tent in fifth grade. Seems like so long ago.
And Jared with his DARE officer. He has grown a foot or two since then.

Here is Diana with her very bee-u-tiful teacher.

Good job! She was very stressed out over her DARE essay and spent an evening convinced that she wouldn't get it done and wouldn't graduate, but it all worked out in the end.

Another amazing even in December was Trent's concert with his CSN college choir. He looks good in his Tux, and it made me do a double take to see him sing. He did well and it is fun to discover new and hidden talents. I was too far away to get a very good picture. Trent is the one right behind the piano. I figure that when you are in college you don't appreciate your mother getting up and running up to the front to snap your picture. Maybe I was wrong, but I don't think so.

And Diana was in her school play. It was about some teachers and kids at an elementary school who were hoping it would snow so there would be a snow day. To make it more fun, they changed the names of all the characters in the play to be names of teachers at our school.
Diana had the part of the music teacher, Miss Friend. How teacherish does she look?
Here she is with some of her friends and cast mates.
Here she is with the real Miss Friend. Freaky twin like don't ya think? Can we say mini me?
Her she is after the performance accepting her flowers. A star is born.
My sister was able to fly down from Salt Lake for the day and be there to see Diana perform. It was a great day and I think Diana may have caught the acting bug.

I think you are right about not running up to take a picture... a little to old for that!

I LOVE Diana's glasses. They are exactly like Miss Friends! How cool is that. What a fun post. Glad to get caught up a bit. Wish I could have been there for the preformances. Congrats to all for a good job!

Wow I am surprised that anyone even still checks my blog. I was pretty sure I would be talking to myself.

OK Alison and April, next time I will run up and take a picture. Although I will be posting my bowl game pics, and he was seriously not impressed with my picture taking there. But hey its my job to be annoying, right?

I love how everyone is smiling in their pictures except Trent. Go Diana!
