Dave's Funeral

Our close friend Dave Widauf passed away suddenly. It has been really hard on Matt who spent a lot of time with Dave. Matt was honored to be asked to dedicate the grave. We saw Margaret and Jay Hicken at the funeral - Dave was a professor at Utah State in the same department with Uncle Jay, so they had known each other for many years as well. I had never been to a military burial before - it was both comber and touching.

Goblin Valley

I went to visit Matt in Green River this weekend. We went hiking in Goblin Valley with our friends Bill and Karla Kepsel.

The scenery was stunning!

Here is Bill contemplating a plunge off a stone diving board!

Karla and I had fun exploring!

Before it was called Goblin Valley this area was called Mushroom Valley. This photo shows why!

Happy Mother's Day

My Mother's Day gift just keeps on giving as the blooms get more colorful, more plentiful, and of a bigger variety!
It's hard to believe how much they grew over the weekend! Pretty blossoms too! They are happy in the window sill, I think!

These happy looking "Fleurs" were delivered to me in my classroom with a note that read
"Awesome mothers grow awesome daughters.
We love you! "

It made my day and my students got a kick out of it too.
I decided to leave them at school since they look so happy on this window sill. The kids and I are anxious to see them bloom!
Happy mother's day to all!
