I started my Internship at Madison Memorial Hospital last week. So far... it is the coolest thing ever.

I keep waiting to find out that I'm doing everything wrong, and everyone hates me, but so far, I like it. Each day is NEW because there are new patients with interesting (but sometimes very, very sad) stories and issues.

I'm away from my sweet Mady girl more, but I am home by about 3-3:30 each day so I still get to spend some quality time with her. We found a GREAT nanny, Hannah, who just might have been sent from Heaven. It's a relief to know she is well taken care of.

Today when I got home, I took Mady for a car ride. She has figured out that she can spot the temple from nearly every part of town and loves playing 'spot the temple'. She asked me "Mommy, go run on grass at park please?" and so we went to the park and played on the slides and I think she played on the swings for an hour!

I guess I forgot to explain this picture of Garrett and Jenny... they were trying out my one time use toothbrushes after lunch... this is in Fred's office. Garrett and Jenny are the other Social Work Interns, they're great! The hospital provides free lunch everyday for us, it's awesome!

Zoo last weekend...

Shameless brag :)

This might be way too small, but it's my grade report for the Winter semester! If you click on it, it will be larger. I start school again next week, on Tuesday. Hopefully I will be going to some sort of orientation at the hospital on Monday. I'm going to be taking 11 credits (3 classes + my internship)... I'm excited but nervous to start my internship!

Sunday :)

It was 61 degrees outside today! So we used the bubble machine that came from the Easter bunny, and practiced our graffiti skills on our back porch.

I do not like seafood. The only thing I like is my Dad's fried battered halibut or rock fish... and salmon patties. At the end of last summer, Kendall went to Alaska for a few days and went fishing, and my parents sent back A TON of fish that was all vacuumed packed and filleted. I bought a deep fryer a few months ago ... but finally tried it out today! It wasn't quite as delicious as my Dad's, but still tasty! I think I still have .. oh 20 lbs in the freezer still lol. Anyone up for a party?

It keeps me from snacking?

Kendall's mom Jenny gave this project to me for Christmas... I actually finished it like two months ago, but just got around to taking a picture of it.
This one I bought for myself last month-ish, I just thought it was pretty.

This is a link to watch a clip of He is Risen from General Conference.

Check this out. I'm quoting someone else:

"The last verse of this defies earthly music"

Park fun!

Mady before:

My baby girl is growing up!

Racing to the swings!

Que Pasa?

Here's some of us from my Macro class sorting clothes from our clothing drive for the Haven shelter in Idaho Falls. I don't remember if I was trying to look like a dork, or if that's just how I smile.

Mady's new favorite place to hang out is Barnes & Nobles

I tried to get a picture of my new glasses. I finally gave in to the dry horrible Rexburg weather... can't stand wearing my contacts more than two hours or so. Since at my last eye exam, my eye doctor kindly reminded me it was illegal for me to be driving with corrected vision.....

Sorry Amanda, not the best picture! These are our friends Amanda & Wade and Wanita in the back. Jack is in the back too, but I guess you can't see him. Amanda was babysitting Mady while I was at school, but they moved a couple weeks ago :( This was on our trip to get Chinese food... which I wish I had taken a picture of, SO MUCH FOOD!

This is Mady at our FAVORITE place to eat, Original Thai. We love Thai food. like obsessively. They know us and we practically don't have to order. It's sick. The best part is, Mady loves Thai food too!
