We are still without a primary residence. Grant and Sandra are being great hosts for us. They house and feed us during the week and we spend the weekends up in Ogden. Lisa treks up to Kaysville a few times a week for cub scouts, guitar lessons, piano lessons, etc. She is becoming a great commuter. (a little empathy for my daily drive!)

We just spent this last weekend with the Halverson Family celebrating the 4th of July. We started the morning bright and early (3:45 am) getting ready to cook for the Hunstville Breakfast in the Park. After breakfast we all enjoyed a nice "small town" parade.

After the parade we enjoyed a nice family barbecue and then went swimming at Ryan and Christy's parents house. We had a great time until Alicia jumped off the diving board and went to the side. She "kissed" the wall. She hit right above her lip and just below her nose. Angelina Jolie has nothing on Alicia's full lips!

The house is coming along slower than we want. We have a punch list of items that we are discussing with them to have them fix. It seems to me that it would make more sense to do it right the first time and not have to incur the hastle of fixing it again. All the same, things are turning out beautifully. We are excited to move in.

We have started attending church in our new ward and really enjoying it. It is huge. There are 694 people in our ward, including the Halversons. They announced today that they are going to split it next week. We had a ward swimming part at the Farmington pool this last week and there were around 600 people in attendance. Everyone is in the same situation we are trying to get to know each other.

It has been a great summer. We are getting more and more excited to move into our new house and start a new life in our new neighborhood.

It is very rare I get to leave a first comment! Your house and activities look great. We love having you with us during your transition.

The house looks amazing, I wish the house we are moving into looked like that, or was atleast half the size. I hope Alicia is doing better.

The house is looking great! I can not wait to come and see the final project.

I don't think you are homeless anymore. Let's get a new update! And pictures pretty please! (For those of us far away!)
