Teacher meetings in New Orleans have filled my week. I was there with 11 teacher friends from my school. We had classes on technology and online teaching. We stayed in the beautiful 32 story tall Hyatt Hotel.... this was the view from my room.
I like New Orleans...I'm even more fond since Addison served his mission in Louisiana. The food is amazing...beignets, pralines, catfish, jambalaya, red fish, bbq, po boys, tornado fries...it's all good, plus it was 80 degrees for 5 days! We went to Oak Alley Plantation and on a city tour where we visited the unusual cemeterys, listened to Jazz....and spent time in the French Quarter.

Monson is doing good. He loves being a missionary. He loves to study the scriptures and he is now training his third greenie. He has gathered a lot of Michigan stuff while in Michigan State territory. His wrist still hurts....but he is moving forward with faith.
Truman is busy with studying Chinese, math and Biology and training at Texas Roadhouse in Provo. He likes his life in Utah Valley. He was at a Crimson night for the UofU with friend Sam Strong recently and held a snake??? What's that about?
My garage is cleaned out. Hurrah. We can park two cars in there again, just in time for the change of weather. Add and Bre moved all of their stuff to a storage unit while they are living in Grandma Sheri's basement for a few more months. They are working in Ogden, rehearsing for A Christmas Carol at Hale Centre Theatre and auditioning for Disney. All is well in their world...except for a blowout flat tire on the freeway during our first snowfall of the year.
