Accepted! and Loved

Accepted at Law School
Joseph received his acceptence letter to the S.J.Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah this week. He hasn't officially accepted yet, he hasn't heard back from a number of other law schools. . . but we are all excited and relieved. The law school at the U is among the highest median GPAs of all law schools. You can read the U's Law School Profile by clicking on the link (photo on right: U Law School Library).

Joseph is still attending graduate level classes in Public Administration this semester and is hoping he will be accepted in the program as he works towards a concurrent Masters degree. He has been carefully planning and figuring out his schedule for the next few years. He really enjoys his classes and the other students in them. He also thoroughly loves his work at the disability law center and the Neuroworx foundation. He is also still working with the legislators on the hill (see photo above left: Joseph at the Capitol steps).

Accepted without the Bulky Black Boot
Church members in Taylorsville were able to find it in their hearts to accept Tim at stake conference today without his boot. He only has to wear it part time now, and he declared today his coming out event. It was a great stake conference, especially without the added baggage. The new x-rays taken earlier in the week showed everything healing nicely (not that we can tell from the new pictures).

It was a season of love and celebration with Elizabeth's birthday and Valentines Day both in the same week. Gloria's valentine for Tim was a handcrafted masterpiece that can never be thrown away, Tim's card sang Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe" to Gloria. For Elizabeth's birthday Denny gave her a cool pink mountain bike for the occasion, so now she can take the kids on bike rides. She was so delighted!

Since Tim's work has all switched over to Sprint cell phones the family started the move this week as well. Tim and Gloria drove though the snow as did the kids and all met in North Ogden at McDonalds with the new phones. The grown ups had almost as much fun playing with the phones as the kids did in the play area.
