Vearl's family

I emailed Vearl and Josie to put up some news and photos. Since they haven't yet, I put up a few but we're lacking lots of stuff from their recent week with everyone (except BJ) in Minn. So if anyone has a pipeline to Vearl or Michelle tell them to put up some photos.

Above was at Okla State. Below in St George

Colty came to visit Chicago this summer
Played pretty well
And brought a friend.... Nicole

Sara T got married!

Hello wonderful family! I just got married to Frederik Kleiner, and we are loving it! He is German, but has lived in the States and his family is currently living in Alberta. He served his mission in Argentina (because 2 languages apparently wasn't enough ;) )

We are both in our last year of school at BYU and things are going great! I'm finishing up my degree in Early Childhood Education and he in Linguistics. He's been doing some work translating for the Church and he loves it. Life is great and we hope all is going well with all of you!

Love and Light,
Sara (Forsyth) and Frederik Kleiner

Mary Brave; Family Grateful

Hello dear family, I'm happy to write-up an entry for my Mom, Mary, per her request.
Things are well in Logan. Mom finished-up Chemo the week before last and we surprised her with a party when she got out of the treatment. Today would have been another great day for a party! the Tuesday she didn't have to go in for another treatment. She did, however, meet with the Radiologist. In a couple of weeks, Mom will begin 6 1/2 weeks of radiation, 5 days per week.

In other Logan news: we are all grateful to have had no flooding this year. We were prepared for quite a lot of water, which we had, but the weather kept it from coming all at once.
This past week we had an Anderson cousin reunion. Grandma Mary and Grandpa Runar took the oldest grandkids to the Lion House for an un birthday party and we had all sorts of other great love and fun building activities over a few days. Below a couple pictures from that reunion:
