Happy happy, just not quite enough time..

I drove Thelma down this weekend to home sweet home. This was my first time making the drive from Provo to AZ all by myself, but I surprisingly enjoyed myself! I had a great time thinking to myself and jamming out to some good tunes :)

This is one of my favorite views on the drive home, just south of Page. You drive through a mountain enclosed road and then, bam. a beautiful view that screams Arizona!

Home was great! I got to play with my nieces and nephews, pick some fresh nectarines and apples in the summer evening, sleep in my own bed, do some shopping with my mom, and spend a little time with my parents, my sisters, and my dear friend Chelsy. Being home for a day was just enough to tease me! It sure did get me excited for August, when I actually get to spend some real quality time home!

My nieces and I! They are quite the goof balls!

4 days. That’s it!! 4 days til I fly with 7 other TEE students to the Dominican Republic to teach tech classes! It’s coming too quick! While I was home, my sister Grace kept on teasing me about how much I’m going to melt there! We looked up the weather and it said it was in the 80’s with 80% humidity…. Then she was like, “well at least you have AC where you’re living right??” Actually no, we don’t. Grace just started laughing away! Oh how she loved giving me a hard time! Then my other sister Wendy was saying how she had a friend who went on a mission there whose nose got soo burnt that it was red and all crusty! Ahh!! I think they just like to tease me more than anything… That’s what they’re good at ;)

Our lil TEE fam will be living and teaching together just outside of Santo Domingo


  1. Correction Anita: the temp said it was 103 with 50% humidity! haha! And then you asked Jeff how he stayed cool in the Philippines and replied, "Sweat- your sweat will cool you off."

    In all reality you will have a wonderful time and I can't wait to hear all about it. And see your cute little red crusty nose :)

  2. Umm...I thought it was 103 with 80% humidity. It's a shame you couldn't have hung out longer. Have fun in your little sweat shop, hot house! See you in August. Love you!

  3. I was great to see you while we could! It was WAY TOO SHORT! We will have to take you kayaking when you come back in August! I love you, babe!
