Summer Livin'

This summer has been a hot one for us! We are looking forward to an air-conditioned home, even if it means moving to Winnemucca NV! We've stayed busy with our Manager job at the apartments we live in, and although it keeps us from being able to up and go whenever we want to, it has been a blessing to not have to pay rent for the last year. The "move" is absorbing most of our summer, so we are trying to get in our fun wherever we can. Washington has been good to us, but I think we are ready for a change. Most of our friends are moving on, so it just feels right to move-on ourselves. Tyler is working for the university this summer, and Allie and I try to brave the heat at the park and have fun with all of our neighborhood friends. Allie particularly loves our neighbors next door who are from Azerbaijan (a little country near Turkey) they have a little boy who is two and just loves Allie, all three spoil her rotten. I'm just now 10 weeks pregnant, and trying to make it past the "sick phase". We are really excited about this pregnancy, and are grateful for the timing, even if it is in the middle of another move. We really wanted Allie to have a sibling that wasn't too much younger than her, and these two will be almost exactly two years apart.
I was recently just released from my calling as a counselor in the Primary, and am now filling in with the Sunbeams until we leave. Tyler is still serving as Young Men's President/Scout Master, and I don't think they are going to let him out of it until we are gone and they have no choice! This last year was a little crazy for him with the calling, school, and practicum, but he did a good job of balancing everything. Life is good, and we are happy and healthy!
