Kyle and Shelby found a home. After looking through over 30 homes they finally found the one for them. It is in Syracuse, a few minutes away from us and has a giant back yard and lots of extras. There is a park across the street and a church nearby. We have had fun having them stay with us but are excited for them to have a place of their own.

Our friends had a pregnant Guinea Pig. So now we have a Guinea Pig. (and one less friend). We named it "Magenta" even though it isn't magenta. But on the movie "Sky High" there is a Guinea Pig named "Magenta" - so ours is too.
Colby would like to keep track of how much it poops. You know, weigh the poop daily, store it, etc. I think there are other science projects we could be doing.

Last week Kerry and I went to BYU for EFY. It was really fun being with together and being with the students. We only had 300 people or so at our session, (I like the energy of the big 1200 kids sessions) but it was really fun anyway. They were from all over the states and even some from other countries. Kerry did a great job on her talks, and mine all went well too. (I think the secret is to stay in the scriptures.) I like teaching and being with the teenagers, but I really enjoy my time with the young adults who make up the team of counselors. It is so neat to see them at the edge of adult things and wondering what to do. Now that they are older they all think they are at the "end of all their troubles", little do they know. I can't wait to see what happens to them.
Brian and Meggie. We think they should get married. Doesn't this look like an engagement picture? (She later ate that cookie)
We also got to see Alycesun C., a friend from last summer, who was nice enough to stop by and say "hi". We love her. Aly and Alyssa are going to room together. The boys better watch out. Heartbreakers.

We pushed and pulled our handcart all over the place. Miles and miles. We gained a better appreciation for the song, "Pioneer children sang as they walked and walked and walked and walked and walked..."
We wore pioneer costumes for the three days. Kinda.
At one point, they separated the men from the women to simulate the men going off to march in the "Mormon Battalion". So the women had to push the handcart up the biggest hill. Kerry was a real trooper and probably could have done it by herself, with the kids in the back yelling "are we there yet?"
Even with all the work, the hardest part was the 6 hour school bus ride to get there. It was so long. But it gave us time to practice sign language with the others. (Kerry and I are both working on it. I think I am a little obsessed.)Anyway, yea Trek! Only three years until the next one. Which Tanner will be old enough to go to. That will be awesome.

My form demonstration.
My weapons demonstration
Sparring round 1. (I'm in black)
I am not sure I ever want to do this again. It was fun because it was karate, but the way the whole thing was run was pretty disapointing. Not only was there no one to compete with, but whenever judges are involved it is pretty wierd. But, I got 3 medals, and a t-shirt. It was such a long day, but it was really nice to be with Kerry. She was a real peach to drive with me 4 hours each way, then sit there all day to watch me for 5 minutes.

We had lots of Robbs at our house this weekend. It was great. We were very glad that everyones vacations worked out so they could all come and visit at the same time. We had our 5, and Grandma Robb, Kyle, Shelby, Kaden, Adam, Angela, Brylan, Dysan, Makea, Devon, Michelle, and Grandpa. We had so much fun on the trampoline, in the swimming pool, badmitton, and turned the karate room into a dorm room for the kids.
