Since we got married we have been creating a new life together revolving around our church calling, school, and trying to make friends with other married couples (that part is harder than it looks). We'll try to update our blog often with any fun news!

Don't Be Trashy!

Bryan is in a Business class where  he was elected CEO of his company consisting of 16 classmates. They created their own business called "Rexcycle" where they will be taking out the recycables for single womens' housing complexes.

Each apartment (six girls) pays $40 per semester for Rexcycle to take away their recycables. Bryan's company have a projected $21,000 in revenues with over $14,000 in profits!

He already has a lot of busy days and nights since he is the final decision maker, but it's also saying a lot that everyone trusts him to be the CEO to determine the final future of Rexcycle!

 Here is their fun website with the slogan, "Don't Be Trashy!"   http://www.rexcycle.com/

New Sunbeam Teachers!

We've been teaching the Sunbeam class in our ward for a couple weeks now and love it!  Of course watching  six kids all under the age of  3 can get a little crazy, but they are all a blast and kids really do say the funniest things! And it really is the coolest feeling to have the little kids look up to us.

One little girl handed us a note before class with hearts on it that she had her older sister draw for us. So cute! In opening exercises a little boy was holding a picture of a candle so when the music leader asked "Who has the light?" all the kids yelled out "JESUS" all at once! Funny stuff. Aside from all the funny things the kids say, we're trying to teach our little Sunbeams class to not speak when the other is talking, to raise their hands when they have something they want to say, etc... it's working out okay so far.

 But this whole "I miss Mommy" thing we're still having trouble with. I guess it is a huge adjustment from Nursery to Primary so we shouldn't be too surprised. So far so good, we'll see how this Sunday goes!

Christmas and New Years

Christmas was the first time we saw our families since the wedding, so we had to make the most of it! We drove from Idaho to Oakland and spent Christmas with the Crane side, then we went to Las Vegas to spend New Years with the Giffords. It was a long drive but definitely worth the trip to see the family again!

Since school has started up we've been trying to figure out job choices, internships, best places to work, etc. Any tips? Talk to you all soon!
