He has literally worked his tail off this last semester. His daily schedule has gone something like this: wake up at 5:00 a.m., study ‘til 7:00, drive to Provo for studying/class until 6:00 p.m., return home, eat, hit the books again until 11:00, sleep…do it all over again.
He is loving his program and we are excited about the opportunities that are opening up for him. He received an offer to intern with Kellogg (like the cereal) in Battle Creek, Michigan this summer as a brand manager for Frosted Flakes. We’re not sure if he is going to take the offer yet. He went to Michigan to be “wined and dined” and to tour the corporate headquarters. He was very impressed with Kellogg...
...and very unimpressed with Michigan. We’ll see…
One of my first thoughts when he got the offer was:
“If he ends up working for them someday will I have to sever my relationship with General Mills cereals, as in no more Capn’ Crunch and Lucky Charms?( favorites from my childhood that I don’t actually buy- but I like knowing that I could do so without being disloyal.)
His answer was “yes, you'd have to end that relationship.”

Many of you don't know my dad's side of my family. This picture was actually taken last year but I felt that I needed a post featuring these very important people in my life... (Pictured: Chris and me, my dad, his wife Tammy, her sons Kurt and Trent, and my sisters Rachel and Lindsey. Not pictured: dogs, Sandy, Tessie and Ruby.)
Chris and I are heading to Atlanta, Georgia on the 26th to see them and can't wait!!

We went to dinner with my family up at the The Steak Pit in Snowbird Resort and were seated right next to a window. As we were eating we looked over to see a round black ball making its way over to the window. The waitress explained that it was just Larry coming to retrieve his daily loaf of bread. He stayed there for over two hours and polished the whole thing off.
