Baby Anne!

I get to help babysit my adorable 7-month old niece this week while her parents are away.
She is such a sweetheart! We are having a great time.
She is already a little musician in the making.
Going for a walk and picking flowers. Does life get any better?

Last Week of EFY :(

This was one of the most exciting moments of my week.
This kid let me take out his stitches! I felt very official.
Saying goodbye to all of my wonderful new friends. This was a sad day.

A Week off from EFY Spent with My Wonderful Family!

The beach was seriously freezing.
But it was so beautiful! Gotta love the Oregon coast.
I found a cute new boyfriend.
We have cute feet.

We spent two weeks in Tacoma and then came back to Forest Grove yesterday. Some of us decided to spend our afternoon off at the beach. We went to the Tillamook cheese factory and then went to the beach to play for the afternoon. It was a great Saturday.

I Love to See the Temple!

After our first session of EFY, our leaders challenged us to spend a few minutes on the grounds of the Portland temple on our way from Forest Grove to Tacoma. I could feel the amazing Spirit that surrounds the house of the Lord as soon as I entered the gates. This temple is so beautiful! I've decided that I would really like to get married in the Portland temple.

Dehydration Never Was Happiness

One of our great purposes in life as health counselors is to try to convince the participants to drink water so that they don't end up dehydrated. We motivate them by offering stickers to anyone we see drinking water. As a result, people randomly start drinking water around me all the time. I was talking to a friend at the dance on Friday when I was suddenly surrounded by boys sipping water. I thought it was hilarious. Way to be hydrated, boys. This picture is also an excellent display of how unflattering my wonderful red polo shirts are.

The Most Official Part of My Week

Meet my partner, Lynn. They say that a picture is worth 1000 words. This one captures Lynn perfectly. Participant check-in is one of our favorite times of the week because we feel like we are doing something really organized and official. We go through all of the kids' records and then talk to them at check-in if there are any medical concerns. We get to meet lots of awesome kids and parents this way. Notice the sweater. It always manages to be freezing during check-in, even last week when it was super hot all of the other days.
