David got a call from Union University and they informed him that he was accepted! Here is a picture of David holding the official letter they sent him after the phone call. He is going to be a Pharmacist!

Shiloh and Casy Jones

While David was interviewing for Union University, he took the time to travel around and see some sights from the area. Jackson is home to the famous railroader Casey Jones, and there is a museum to him and to railroads in Jackson. Shiloh battlefield is an hour and a half south of Jackson, and so David went there to see his first civil war battlefield. He really enjoyed his trip.

Union Interview

David had an interview for Pharmacy School with Union University in Jackson , Tennessee on November 11. It is a small Baptist college that opened a Pharmacy school about 4 years ago. David was very impressed by the school, and the people her met there. They told him that they would cal him with there decision on Tuesday.

Gravity Works!

Today, Hyrum thought he would see if Gravity works with clean laundry, school books, library books and toys. He used the 2nd story porch to do his experiment. It still works. Here is Hyrum cleaning up, above him is the porch he used in his "experiment".

Watercolors, Dad's Chair, Haircuts and Berry loving

We had a few interesting things happen recently. The kids made their cousin Abram birthday pictures, but they used their fingers to make the watercolors since David couldn't find paintbrushes. A member of the ward recently gave us a very nice chair, David loves it since it is almost a miniloveseat. Heidi decided to give our potato plants a "haircut" and so she got ahold of some scissors and did. Heid is also a HUGE cherry fan. Here is her simile after she consumed a bunch.


We recently went camping with the Simmons and the Herbs. It was a lot of fun. It is the first time the kids have gone camping and now they kleep asking to do it again.
