San Rafael Pro Rodeo

These are videos I took at the Rodeo tonight. The first is of Wild Cow Milking. Miranda may remember a certain cowboy named smiley, at the ranch he is lovingly referred to as the gq cowboy or in high school just Seth Webber. He won. You may enjoy the cowboy tripping, and another one falling off his horse. Watch close. Added note, Tennyson likes to get in the way of my wicked filming skills, please ignore her. JK

The Adventures Begin.

This week I had an interview at the Apple store. I drove to Salt Lake with my dad and we stayed with Glendon and Bobette. They are such a funny pair to be with. I quite enjoyed my little stay. On Thursday morning, we went out for breakfast and then I went to my soon to be apartment. Les and I watched Twilight or as my dad lovinly calls it,"twitchel." I was not overly entertained by the spider monkey. I guess I won't need to put that on my future purchase list. I took trax to my interview in the gateway, and was miffed out how long the train took. I arrived early anyways but, I could have been earlier. We were escorted to a meeting room, where I discovered that we would be having a group interview, in which I was the only female. It made me kinda nervous, but I survived. I felt like I did a good job. They told us they would call us next week, if they wanted to see us again. So, this morning to my surprise I had an email waiting from the manager asking me to come back on Monday. I'm stoked.

Also, I recieved the awards yesterday from the financial aid office, and I have college paid for. YES!!! I feel like my life couldn't be going any smoother. I am so blessed. I love you all, and I will post later about our rodeo activities.
P.S. The picture is from the Gilgal Gardens. This particular image is a representation of Danial 2.

Me and My Baby(or one of the many)

Look at that sweet little face, she was just waking up from a nap.
Today was my Mothers Birthday, I spent the day cooking and cleaning. I made Stew, rolls, cinnamon rolls and Cake. I was thinking way to start the biggest loser with a bang. Tomorrow begins my strict diet change. Tomorrow I will post the great birthday shots. Hasta Manana.

A Few Pics and Memories

This is me with Hermana Figueroa, I trained her in December of 2008.
You may recognize these guys in the photo below. These are my Elders.

Leaving for Honduras February 2008.

One of my first converts from Villa Nueva. Looking at this picture maybe you can understand why I say it isn't hot here. Can you see the sweat running down my neck? It was disgusting.

My Hearts Devotion

Remember dear sweet Tela. It was my home for 3 months. It looks impressive from here.

Well, I decided that I needed to taked the time to post for the last time from Honduras. It has been an interesting week as I am sure you call all imagine. I wish I had more time to post funny stories or great memories but I don´t. I promise that when I get home I will do a good photo show. I feel slightly relieved to have made it to this point. I didn´t ever think that it would pass so rapidly. I love my Honduras. I feel so bad that this is happening(war) and that the U.S is supporting a communist(zelaya). I guess we will have to wait and see how things end. I love you.
