Rebecca's new car

Well, Rebecca found a car she liked and was in her price range so she now owns her own car. She likes the sound of that I think. It is a pretty gold 2001 Saturn. Should work well getting her to and from Chadron for school. It is a pretty car. Dallin calls it the other Rhonda. (We call our Honda, Rhonda).

We are finished (at least enough to move in)with our new family room

About six months ago Neil and I were talking about needing a family room so we had a place where everyone could sit down together and enjoy time. Neil teasingly mentioned that the garage had a lot of space. His comment really got me thinking and I thought it was a great idea. We talked some more, drew up plans for a family room and storage room, and kept thinking about it. We decided it was a good idea and got started in October 2009. Neil has put in lots of evenings working on the project. He has learned new skills. We have had dust and noise in the house. We have enjoyed working on the project together, and now we will all enjoy our new family room. Picking out paint was interesting. We ended up creating our own color for the trim and doors. Now I really do like the paint color. Thank you, Neil for all your hard work!! It looks beautiful!! We had carpet laid on Friday and enjoyed a movie together on Sunday. We hung pictures today and now it looks like our dream family room.

Drum Roll, please...Rebecca has decided to attend...

Chadron State College in Chadron, Nebraska. She gave it a lot of prayer and thought and feels good about where she is headed. We are glad she has a decision and can go forward. We are grateful she has this opportunity to further her education. I guess we'll have a reason to learn more about Nebraska. She really thought about going to BYU and was grateful for her scholarship there. She feels this is the best decision for her and we support her. click here to check out Chadron State

A thought about Rebecca leaving for college. The other day I was in the hall by the maps with David. I showed him where Chadron was and told him that Rebecca was thinking about going to college there. He was kind of sad and said, "But I really like this house. I don't really want to move anywhere else." I told him we weren't all going, only Rebecca was. He responded "She can't do that. I'll miss her." I thought that was pretty sweet. We'll miss her!! But we really are grateful she has this opportunity.

We love you, Rebecca!! Go Eagles!!!
