CSI at The UPS Store

I got to work this morninbg and found the the UPS Store that I worked at had been broken into over the weekend. I put my key in the door and the lock came out with it. I went in and checked the drawers where we keep cash and all of it was gone. i called my boss and the cops. come to find out there were five other stores in the area that had the same thing happen. i had to fill out some paperwork and stay out side while CSI form South Jordan came and took pictures and dusted for fingerprints. I guess that is an exciting way to start the week.

As other updates. We are still moving to Idaho. we found a p0lace in Idaho Falls that we like alot. for a three bedroom two bath up there is cheaper than our current one bedroom one bath. me and becca are both getting excited to move. well there isn't much else to report.

Well a lot has happened with me and Becca in the last month. It all started when I found out that I did not get accepted to BYU. I was a little disappointed at first, but also kind of gratful. Now me and Becca are going to be moving to Idaho so i can finish up school at BYU-Idaho. we are both getting excited to be around family up there, but also sad that we are leaving family down here.
Becca has been doing well in school. She just took her first benchmark and recieved the highest score in the whole school. She hopfully will be able to find some specialtiy dentist up in Idaho that she can work for.
well i can't think of much else so until next month.

I love Blue Berry Muffins with the crumbly topping. The other day I bought three boxes....cuz the grocery store always seems to be out of the mixes. They make great Visiting Teaching treats and kid snacks...and they're just good.

We had a fun Labor Day weekend. Andrew & Kelli surprised us saturday night and called and toold us they were in Salt Lake and wanted to go out to dinner. we went to Famous Daves Barbeque. It is the only barbeque that Becca likes. Their main attaction is below and yes it is a trash can lid holding it all.

Sunday we decided to skip church and go to the zoo with them. we don't feel bad cause we hadn't seen them for almost a year. Charles and Juniper loved the snakes, lizards and crocidiles for some reason. They definitley didn't get thaat from the Rogers side. i got some really cute pics of both of them. hopefully i can remember to bring my camera to work so i can post them. monday Becca had to work so i cleaned the apartment waiting for Ned & Kristy's fam to come for the small BBQ we had at a park near my aparment in Midvale. it was fun except for the desert melted. oh well.

Becca is really enjoying her school. The only thing is she is very tired cause she works from 6:30 AM to 2:30 PM and then goes to school from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM. down in American Fork. She catches trax home from work, hurry and changes and then takes three different buses to get down there. I guess that is what we get for only having one car. well i can't think of anything else so see ya.
