Our third and final Eagle!

Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts.
Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me...
Anything can happen, child.  
Anything can be.

A day trip to San Francisco while Anne Marie was home.

Chase began his Master's program in Linguistics 
at San Francisco State.  Visiting his new apartment,
Kris and I were reminded of our own San Franciso days!

How much do I love you? 
I'll tell you no lie.
How deep is the ocean?
How high is the sky?

Unfortunately, Ty's senior year in soccer was cut short
because of a broken arm.  The injury occurred during one
of his games and has left him sitting on the bench.
Big bummer. 

The team went on to win CCC and now are in the playoffs.

Years ago, Grandma and Grandpa Rowan gave Anne Marie
a little crystal which hung in her bedroom window.  She
took it with her to college but somehow during her
move to Boston it disappeared.  It had become 
very sentimental to her and she genuinely mourned its loss. 
 She took this little video recently after G-ma and
 G-pa surprised her by sending
her a new crystal.  

After Conference dinner at G-ma and G-pa's.

Anne Marie said:  "Who needs Santa's workshop 
when you've got Grandpa's?"  Always fun
to visit his shop.  She walked away with
a cool bracelet this particular day.

Turlock High School had its first Powder Puff
football game in over twenty years, I believe.
You can see the girls playing ball and the
guys being cheerleaders in this video.
(Ty is in back row, far right.)
They all get an 'A' for courage!

Elder Harper is from Kentucky.  He fried up some
genuine "Kentucky Fried Chicken" for Kris'
group of young men.  It was really delicious.

                                       Camille, Emily, and Ty
Emily Humphreys is one of Ty's best friends.  She took the
missionary lessons over several months and when the time
was right she was baptized.  Ty managed to baptize her even
with a cast on!  They 'practiced' in our front room. We love
 Em.  She has become 'part of the furniture' at our home.

A few days after the Giants won the World Series, Ty
and a few friends drove to San Francisco and 
spent the night with Chase so they could all
go to the big parade.  They had a blast.

And this was Call's contribution to 
the celebratory cause!  Haha!
