October Creeps Into November

Panel Discussion with Joseph
Joseph was invited by the advisor at the UofU disability center to participate in a Panel discussion on disabilities for the UofU Gay and Lesbian Coalition last week. One of our former Sister Missionaries, Jenny Jones, who lost most of her eyesight after the mission, was on the panel as well. Joseph did great and everyone learned a lot.

Halloween isn't one of the Taggart's favorite holidays, but now Elizabeth's kids are getting older it is getting more fun. They went with the family to the Ward Halloween activity here and had a blast.

Real Salt Lake Wins Their First Ever Playoff Game
Joseph and Tim went to the first ever playoff game for Real Salt Lake. It was a great game, held in the new Rio Tinto Stadium, with Real scoring in the last minute of play to win 1-0. The event was competing with BYU football (Tim listened on the radio), UofU football and the Jazz playing at home as well. All the Utah teams won including the USU Aggies, and Weber State.

It was Tim's first time in the new stadium and as always he enjoyed taking photos (note the player on the ground above right holding onto the referee's leg). It was a beautiful fall afternoon, the view of the Jordan River Temple from the stadium is impressive, especially with the fall colors.

After the game Tim and Joseph came home and watched the Jazz beat the Clippers on TV. Gloria enjoyed a little peace and quiet finishing the second book of the Twilight series.
