Quickwater Ranch

Life is crazy and moving so fast! Thank goodness for weekends that give us a break from school for a little bit. Scott's job has it's perks, and this last weekend we were able to go to Quickwater ranch with Vocal Union for a retreat. It was beautiful, the leaves were changing colors and on the second day there was a huge thunderstorm. Being that we went with a music group, there was of course LOTS of singing, and if anyone knows my singing ability it's safe to say I got a LOT of homework done. Scott brought up a projector and we all wathced Mr. Beans holliday which I thougth was hilarious! It was fun getting to know the new group!

It was so beautiful! The camera doesn't do it justice.

We went on a hike and got all muddy.

We played some fun games, but this one was kind of corny. We had to go out blindfolded into the forest and be led to a "friend". Then we were supposed to be able to find it afterwards using our senses. My loving husband led me to a thistle and had me grab onto it.

So afterwards I made him poke his fingers.
This is some of VU discussing the game, it kinda felt like I was a beehive at girl's camp:), plus it was poring rain It was such a fun weekend and a great break!

Scott's BooBoo

We are officially all moved in and have started school!! Scott had a little accident. The day before school we mounted the projecter above our new to us couches. During the movie it all the sudden went dark and we heard a loud crash. We flipped on the lights and Scott is holding his head with blood dripping out from under his hands. The projector and the board it was on landed from a high place right on Scott's poor head! We took him to the emergency room and were there for 3 hours, till 1oclock in the morning. They were going to staple his head but since his hair was short for scarring purposes they did 11 stitches. He's doing just fine. For those of you who know how much I hate blood, I did just fine too. I've even been scrubbing blood out of the couch and wherever the last couple days. (thanks Mike and kelly for helping me out!)
School for us is going good. Just the usual. I'm doing my sr. practicum in IF in a 4th grade classroom. We'll see how that goes. And two math classes in a row, yuck. Scott is taking required classes, plus an intro. into hospital administration to see how he likes it and a mountain biking class. Our apt. is great, a little farther from campus than we are used to but we love it. Maybe I'll take some pics. later.

Cub River

Over Labor Day weekend and before moving up to Idaho, Scott and I went to the traditional Cub River fishing campout near Preston, Idaho. We had so much fun! My dad's cousin and some of his kids came, along with all my brothers and sister. We went on a hike up to where the stream started and all got a drink of the freshest water, MMMM! Kenton was the first to test the water, our little Bear Grills.
The two cooks and our massive steak feast! They finished cooking seconds before the rain started.
Just chillin. Kara, Me, Jake, and my Dad.
Seth, Kiera, and Kyla. I decided to be their family photographer.
My cute cousin Kara and I playing UNO. The last night we got rained out and hung out in the tents all night. When we went out to our tent to go to sleep, all our bedding was sopping wet. figures.

Fishing love!
Scott got really into it.
Every year I get made fun of for not catching a fish. I was determined this year and caught about 8. I decided to unhook my own took a couple screams and I dropped it once, but I was successful!
The two old men ;) who did all our cooking, cleaning, and planning for the trip. My dad and his cousin Kenny. This is them taking their daily nap.
On a hike. The log was very slippery.
