Finally feeling better. (I think)

Just thought I would show you a picture of the New Draper Temple.

Well it's been a while since I wrote anything. Not because I did not want to but I have been sick for the last month. Yep, just like everyone else. Last Sunday I finally went into the Instacare office because I was still feeling crummy. I was only there for two hours. I know, it has to be a record. While I was there I saw a bunch of people from my ward, so I am not sure who was in church last Sunday. When all was said and done the doctor said I had Bronchitis and two other -things that end in -itis. I can't remember. But so far so good. I am starting to feel better I think. I hope everyone else is too. Well since last time I wrote Braden purchased an old non-running ATV from his buddy. I have to hand it to him because two weeks later it is running very well. Brooke is in school and Saturday she had I take home test that we all had fun with. (We are lucky we didn't make her flunk the test) She passed with flying colors. Whitney and Jason have purchased a new car. A BMW! They even let me drive and it is way cool. Jason helped me out last Wednesday with the scouts (we are working on our Aviation merit badge). He did a great job and pretty much assured the scouts that I have no idea what I am talking about when it comes to flying. It was a good night. Stacey has been flying a lot and this last trip she has been in Chicago a few times. Tonight she ends up in L.A. I talked to my grandson Andrew on the phone and I said "I love you, lots" He told me "I love you, watch too grandpa" back. So I need to speak more clearly. He is awesome. I hope you all have a great week.

Well another week has gone by. Last Saturday we celebrated Dads birthday and Crystal's birthday. It was good fun at the Marriott watching the kids in the pool throwing the ball at each other and eating pizza and cake. It was nice to see everyone. I know that the kids had a blast. Brooke is working on a presentation for school. She has to explain how to do something. She is telling the class how to wash a car. I am hoping she learned something from it because our car could use a good washing. Come to think of it so could her car. Braden is working on a four wheeler that he has. It has an electric problem. I was helping him so it probably has more than an electric problem now. He will figure it out. I don't know if I mentioned it but he has been on the Atkins diet. He has lost quite a bit of weight, the only problem is that he eats enough eggs that we need to own chickens and probably a cow or two. Stacey has been flying a lot but she is home today. She went flying with Jason on Saturday and was the pilot for a while. Courtney and Doug are in Nevada looking at his new job and the city they are going to live in. Andrew is back in Iowa staying with his cousins and probably having a ball. Well I hope everyone is well and enjoying life. Talk to you later.
