The professional wedding pics!

While I was in NY I was finally able to see all of my professional wedding pictures and I must say, they turned out pretty great! They were all taken by Summer Potter and she sure did a fantastic job! I posted some of my favorites below. While I'm blogging, I figure I should keep everyone posted on what's going on in our lives. I mentioned before that Matt got the call to be a seminary teacher...well I did too. We'll be team teaching together every morning. We have 28 students...9th-12th grade. We're really excited to have the opportunity to teach together...what a blessing for our marriage. While it will definitely be a challenge to teach together and not offend or step on eachother's toes, it'll be a strengthening experience for us both. It's just what we need. There's no calling I'd rather have than one with the youth and serving with my husband makes it all the better. We're both really grateful and excited. I actually took a class called "Introduction to Teaching Seminary" during my last semester at BYU-I. I learned a lot in that class and think it will be a great help for me. And Matt, although he's never done this before, he knows a whole lot about the sciptures and he's a really great teacher. Matt's practice is growing and we're so grateful for that...we pray that the growth will continue...starting a practice is a tough thing to do. I am keeping busy with cooking and baking and cleaning and running most of the errands. Soccer is over but I'll be playing again in the fall. I got the chance to go rafting on the Deschutes again this past weekend with Matt's sisters and dad. We're going camping this weekend with Matt's family. We're having a great time! The fall is going to be very busy. I'll be going to school full time as well as teaching seminary...but I'd rather be busy than bored. Life's great!

This is my favorite out of the pictures of the two of us...it's just so sweet and candid. It was taken in the field right next to the temple in Palmyra.

Matt and his cousin Shane...so silly.

I've got better ups than Matt...just call me Jordan.
