Graduation

I'm so happy to announce that Benjamin has finished his schooling at UC Davis and has earned his Masters in Business! It has been a bigger sacrifice than we realized but well worth the eternal gain and hopefully temporal too;) Ben has also decided to go forward with his past endeavors to do commercial real state and start the American Freedom School ( which is a private,LDS, non-profit organization). We are happy to be going forward in this direction and excited for what the future has in store!
We also went back to Utah for 2 family reunions: The Clark reunion & The Olsen reunion. They were both a blast for totally different reasons. The Clark family went up to Pine View lake and stayed in a cabin/ home and went boating for days. I even surfed a couple times which was so cool! The Olsen reunion took place out past Price, UT in Joes Valley about 7,000 ft up. It was a beautiful camping experience with dirt, outhouses, creeks, square dancing, talent shows, auctions and hundreds of family members. Family reunions are very exhausting but truly priceless and fun. It was a memorable week for us.
Thanks to all of you who have been supportive and kind to us. Life isn't meant to be done alone and we have really appreciated all of your love.
Have a fabulous Fourth of July and Pioneer Day!!
