ECHO

Jaycie had a 6th grade
Greek Wax Museum.
She was "Echo."
The story of Echo is how we
get the echo in canyons.


COLE IN THE CHOIR

On Thursday, March 16, we attended
Cole's junior high choir concert.
(Mount Nebo Junior High in Payson)
I had no idea he was in the choir!
He says he really likes it!!!

The concert was FABULOUS!
It's all about the teacher!
Very impressive!

THE ACCOLADES KEEP COMING . . . HALL OF FAME





MORE FACEBOOK FUNNIES


I like to take some of the quizzes
that they have on Facebook.
They're pretty funny.

But, several have been
more closer to the truth than not!



WHAT WILL PEOPLE REMEMBER YOU FOR?
(AFTER YOU HAVE PASSED AWAY)

 Which two Disney princesses are you combined?




This was a face analysis.  It zoomed in on
Courtney (she's in my photo) instead of me.








SAMMY

WEDDING SEASON FOR FORMER STUDENTS
IS STARTING UP AGAIN.

SAMANTHA (SAMMY) RAVEN WAS
SUCH A GREAT STUDENT!
SHE WAS SOOOO SWEET AND KIND!
SHE GRADUATED IN 2015, AND MET
HER NEW HUSBAND, TRUMAN,
AT THE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH.




THIS IS SAMMY WITH HER NEW INLAWS.
THE GROOM'S DAD IS MISSING.
HE IS A MISSION PRESIDENT FOR THE
OREGON PORTLAND MISSION.
THE PRESIDENT CANNOT LEAVE, BUT HIS WIFE CAN.


 SO, THIS IS THE MAN THAT MARRIED THE COUPLE!
YUP.  WHEN I SAW THE GROOM'S LAST NAME,
IT IS THE SAME NAME AS AN LDS APOSTLE!
INSTEAD OF ASKING HIS MOTHER IF THEY ARE
RELATED TO ELDER BALLARD, I ASKED IF THEY
WERE RELATED TO TOMMY BALLARD.
HE IS ELDER BALLARD'S GRANDSON AND I 
TAUGHT HIM IN 5TH GRADE!  
I THEN KNEW, AND ALSO TOLD HIS MOTHER I
TAUGHT SAMMY IN 5TH GRADE!

HOW WOULD IT BE TO BE SEALED BY AN
APOSTLE OF THE LORD, AND ALSO THAT
HE IS THE GROOM'S GRANDPA?


BREANN'S SHOWER




BreAnn Wayman was on my
5th grade team for 2 years.
She is so positive, kind, and thoughtful!
I really enjoyed working with her!
After 2 years in 5th grade, she taught
1 year in 1st, and then 2 years of the
English part of Chinese Immersion
in 1st grade.
She is in her 3rd year of teaching
4th grade at Blackridge Elementary, which
is on the main road to Cedar Fort and
Eagle Mountain.
Cami is her principal.
We also went to dinner and movies
every now and then.

BreAnn is getting married on March 30.
We went to a shower for her on
Saturday, March 11.
Condita and Kiliya picked me
up in their new vehicle!!!
WOOT!  WOOT!  BONUS!

Me, Condita, Kiliya, AnnaLea, and BreAnn.


This is Lori Banks Richardson Huey.
She is BreAnn's aunt.
Her and BreAnn's mom are sisters!
She taught her first several years
on my mom's 1st grade team!!!

She started the year before me.
She also got married, then her husband died,
then she was remarried.

Her and her soon to be hubby will
be attending a Jazz game next
fall as their wedding present!

TEN VIRGINS


The Stake Relief Society 
needs to have at least one
activity per year for the
sisters in the stake.

On Sunday, February 26, the 
Stake Relief Society presented
"The Ten Virgins."

It was done as a musical
about the parable in the Bible.
(We were able to pay for
it through Deseret Book)

Each sister was PERFECT for her part!


This is the invitation and poster
I had made up.
Phil Chadwick took the words,
and attached this picture to it...and
sent it to the printer.
The poster hung in every Relief Society and
Young Women's room.

It was also sent out as an invitation
to every Relief Society President
three times . . . every other week.
They could forward it to all of
their sisters.
It was also in every ward bulletin
and announced in Relief Society
every week for 6 weeks.



Here is the program I made.
Beware . . . there are a TON
of pictures!
I put them all on here in case
any of the sisters involved
would like a copy.
