It's Laura's Fault!

So...I've been released from my calling as Scoutmaster in our ward...and it is Laura's fault! Not that I blame her. She has begun another semester of design in her Architorture (architecture) program and her classes are from 6-10 on Tuesday and Thursday evenings...right when our youth nights are held. To give her the benefit of the doubt, she didn't actually ask that I be released, but simply told the bishop what her schedule was going to be this next year and I think that he made the right decision. Although it is a bit tough to know that my time in the ward YM program is at an end, apparently my time in YM is not quite over...I was just sustained as a counselor in the Stake YM presidency! I'm not sure what this means - but it probably means that I messed up the ward youth program sufficiently that I am now to try and make up for it on a stake basis.

So yeah...Laura has begun her design class. It's only been 6 days since she has started, and she has already had 2 late nights (besides her actual classes), and many other hours working on this first project. It's amazing to me how she does it, but she is extremely dedicated to getting her stuff done, and done very well. I think she probably has the best major GPA in her program.

And so it has begun. One more push this year and she will be done! Even though I'm probably her biggest fan of finishing her Architecture degree, I'll be relieved when she finally has that degree in-hand (probably as much as she will be), and so will the dishes, the laundry, the rooms, etc... She does so much for our home that when she's "gone" for just a little while I become a lot more appreciative of what she does.

Just a quick pic of her at her "drawing board"

She is working on analyzing a piece of downtown Ft. is the actual picture...

And here is her rendering...amazing similarities!

Wow, I don't know how you two do it! But that is awesome that you are on the home stretch Laura. Your work is amazing! And you'll have a great time in the stake YM Jared; I'm sure they'll let you tag along on a few campouts and merit badge classes.

i think you got all of my artistic talent- it's the only reason i can think of that stick figures are hard for me!

Jared... haha. Have fun with your calling. I just got released from mine, and nothing's on the horizon. I'm enjoying it 100%.

Lavern... Seriously! You really are amazing. That's all I have to say.
