As for me, I'm just pleased that I could get up early as I head out the door on the first day of school to face my little class of second graders! (Only 11 students this year!!) Unheard of, but awesome! Low stress for me this year! Woo-hoo! My theme once again is: "Camp Read-A-Lot"...I'm holding a newly recovered cushion for our reading bench! I love teaching! It's always exciting to see the kids' excitement on the first day of school!

LeeAnna & Doug Haymond.
Angie Larson, Paul Blad, Me, Brooks, Nielson
(Angie's parents owned the Cow Palace Lanes...bowling alley) Paul was my first grade school crush, and Brooks and I were nominated Biggest Flirts our Senior Year.
Paul, Roger, Brooks, & I all met up at McDonald's the next morning by surprise. Whitney & I were at the drive-up about to order when we heard this sexy, masculine voice coming from the speaker saying, "You can have anything you want, honey!" Out jumped Brooks and Paul from behind. We about wet our pants laughing so hard. We all visited for a few more hours. It was so fun hearing of their lives since high school and remembering fun childhood memories.Whitney had to hear all evening how much she looks like me. I think she is a much better version of myself. Road trips are always fun with Whitney along. She entertains and keeps me awake by playing, "Name that tune" with her I-pod. Good times!!I always loved being able to see this beautiful sight from nearly anywhere in the valley. We often went there for baptisms, firesides, and performed in the annual Mormon Miracle Pageant each summer. I always enjoy reading about the early pioneers that settled the Sanpete Valley and sacrificed so much to build this temple. The best event that took place here was in November 1989 when my parents were finally sealed for time and all eternity!
I feel so incredibly blessed to have been raised by great parents, to have lived so close to the beautiful Manti Temple, and to have been always surrounded by good friends who brought so much joy and laughter in my life during my childhood and teenaged years. When you grow up in a small rural town such as Ephraim, most of your classmates are with you from Kindergarten on up through your Senior year of high school.

Many of our camping neighbors enjoyed similiar water activities though with a lot of loud music and alcohol involved. I'm grateful this family knows how to have a good time without it; although some might think we were drinking if they observed us! Good times...good times!
