Get Ready, Get Set, Go!!!

Tonight was the Project Graduation BBQ at the Lebanon Green. As always, it was catered by Bloods Seafood and that always means that it is a good meal. They do a great job. This year the weather actually held out and was quite nice - not only did it not rain but it was warm and that was a nice change of pace! Below you can see Owen attempting to take down his brother in the Dunk Tank!

Mender Family Photo Session 2007

This is the newest and greatest family photo taken in White River Junction, VT in September 2007. We have included Anne-Marie Safford - the newest member of our family. At least for the next month or two.....Nephi and Anne-Marie are making us grandparents this summer and that will mean we are adding a new member of our family! Also pictured are Owen (right) just newly returned from his mission in southern California and Mitch (left) a senior this year. Joe and I just keep getting older and yet somehow still feel like the same kids we were twenty years ago when we got married.

Goodbye LHS --- Hello BYU

Well it has finally baby is graduating from high school in a few short days. I can hardly believe that 18 years have gone by in a heartbeat.....what an amazing ride. The day after Mitch graduates he heads off for college at BYU.
This summer he will work as a sports camp counselor at BYU ---- his dream summer job and take a class or two. Right now an english class and Book of Mormon class.....let's start out slowly with college life. I suspect his social life will be where he really spends most of his time this summer anyways!
That is a story.....that is quite amazing as well but for now let's just consider it our very own "modern mormon mircale". It is really an amazing story and one miracle we are all happy to be on the receiving end of!
