i am now officially an adult...

Wow. That is all I have to say right now.  I started teaching third grade yesterday and I have made it through two whole days of teaching.  After yesterday, I wasn't so sure of the career I had chosen, but I have flip-flopped since.  Today went much better.  One way I know this is because my throat doesn't hurt as much :)  I feel like I can now say that I am officially an adult because I have a real job (by that I mean the one I went to college for).  I just hope more days can be like today than they will be like yesterday.  I was so grateful to have Darrin the last week.  He knows how scared I was and helped me through all my first day jitters.

Waterbury & Boston

We got the chance to go to Connecticut on a trip with Darrin's family. Darrin's dad got married in the Boston temple. The temple was beautiful and it was such a good experience to go. We just went for three days but it was fun being around Darrin's family and meeting Melanee's family, the woman Randy married.

Here we are waiting in the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.
Darrin was pretty bored, so I decided to entertain him by
taking a few pictures :)

What can I say? He likes me...

As I'm sure you can figure out, he didn't know I was taking
a video. I thought it was pretty funny.

This is the Boston Temple. It is so pretty and the grounds
are really pretty too. There were all kinds of flowers
there. There were all kinds of trees in the East,
I had no idea! I'm just glad I didn't get a picture of my hair.
It HATED the humidity.

Here's Darrin snuggling his dad before the wedding.

The happy couple right outside the temple.

Darrin's niece, Maia. She liked my tube of
lip gloss. She might have just liked the taste of it though...

We went to this historic house, built by Josiah Bronson,
an ancestor of the Bronson family. It was built in 1738 and
most of the house is still in its original condition. It was really cool.
I just can't say that he was a good-looking guy-maybe
if he smiled.

Here's Kurtis, sitting in an antique chair in the Bronson House.
