Last Moments

Today was such a wonderful, bittersweet day. I had my last class at It's Yoga early this morning. I'm going to miss Brittany pushing me so hard 2 mornings a week. I have grown so much practicing there. Next Amanda babysit (again) while Stan and I went to our last temple session at the Provo Temple. Having a temple in walking distance has been so wonderful- for us and the kids. I kept tearing up once we were inside. They asked us to be the witness couple. Next we grilled yummy malibu pork (on the things we've found in our freezer) followed by our last trip to The Quarry. I seriously love that place. I've taught yoga for 3 years in that building and been climbing for just as long. Israel, Eliza scaled the wall, and Julia enjoyed swinging. Stan and I put in our last climbs on the lead wall. I know we'll be living close to Joshua Tree, but the conveniences of a indoor climbing gym just 5 minutes away will be missed. Next I finished setting up all our utilities, signed the rental agreement for our house (we're renting the 1 month and closing after Stan's first pay check.), and worked on packing the kitchen. This evening Trina watched the kids while I played on our ward's co-ed softball team. We won both games- our first time of the season- I was really happy with our playing together as a team. It helped that we had more than 7 people. My team will keep playing, but I'll be gone. It was so nice to end on a win with some nice plays and some good hits. Israel had so much fun playing with Travis. They are such good buddies, but one or both families has been gone for much of the summer.

Leaving is so hard. I've been laughing at all the things I'm sad to be missing.
*having to tape the freezer door shut*
*not having to move the table out each time we eat*
*parking the RAV in that spot that gets a little bit of shade*
*teaching my tiny yoga class*
*using my over the sink Ikea kitchen storage rack*
*hearing our neighbors*

Life is changing
I know a lot will be wonderful but now is wonderful too.
These last 3 years have been better than I ever imagined.
I'm sure the next 3 will be too

Robin - I forgot you had a blog! I am happy to have stumbled upon it. Thanks for the yoga lessons - I have loved them. I am determined to continue on. And, I am very impressed by your quilt - did you quilt the whole thing by hand? It looks amazing! Is there anything you can't do? Good luck with the move - we'll see you tomorrow!

I know how you feel about leaving Wymount. It was definitely bittersweet for me, too. It's exciting to get a bigger/nicer place to live but there is something so wonderful about student life at Wymount. Good luck with your next adventure!
