My daughter is driving now

At 15 and a half, Lindsey officially now has a driver's permit in the state of Texas. Beware. I took her driving for the first time {ever} on Monday right before her piano lessons. This is where the $300+ investment at Austin Driving School should be paying off. I'm taking my friend Yvette's advice and letting most of the driving training begin there. Please say some prayers for us.

Actually, Lindsey did very well on her first time behind the wheel. It's still scary to have my 4'11" child driving. This is all new to me.

Good luck! I failed my driving test the first time I took it- whoops! Sounds like Lindsey is already off to a better start.

Boy am I glad I moved! Lindsey on the road...oh no! J/K Learning to drive was the scariest thing I ever did. I was so afraid, I would always try to find ways to get out of practicing. I am sure Lindsey will be fearless!

oh wow! I remember how scary it seemed at the time, and now it's just second nature. Remember the first time you had to go on the freeway? Yikes - that was petrifying!
(I too, failed my test to get the actual license the first time - I was 16. I pulled into an intersection which was only a 2-way stop, the other direction didn't have to stop... good thing the car we were in had a break on the passenger side. Darn! I'd been doing so well prior to that. Had to take it again... devastating!) ~ Tina O

okay, now I have postings under my own name... not sure what that "events at" was from!
Go Lindsey! Such a fun exciting time. I loved learning to drive.

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party!

Hopefully this title, Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party, does not sound irreverent, because as an Activity Days leader, I felt compelled to come up with a fun end-of-the-summer event that is also uplifting, and after all, who doesn't love a splash in the pool on a hot day in August?  My current church calling, or official role that I volunteer for, allows me to plan two activities each month for girls ages 8 to 11, that will encourage them to learn and live the gospel, serve others, and use the talents Heavenly Father has given them, to learn to do many good things.  This year's seminary course of study for high school students is The Book of Mormon, and since I am a huge fan of this inspired book of scripture, I came up with this idea to have each girl show up to my house with a written summary of one of her favorite stories from within its many pages, and share it with the rest of the girls, while outside in our swimsuits near our backyard swimming pool!  As each girl shares…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
