first day

We've had a lot of fun going to the pool just about every day. Jacoby loves to swim with his water wings on and play in the sand. We love taking this wagon my parents gave him to the pool because it has enough room for all our crap and I doesn't matter if he's wet. We're having fun in Arizona, but we miss everyone; I don't think that will ever change.
I really love my ward down here and am so grateful for all the friendly and outgoing people who've made me feel so welcome. It's been very hard for me to adjust to being away from home, but they have made it easier. Our relief society has tons of activities throughout the week like cooking groups, craft groups, play groups, book clubs, and even more stuff to keep all the students' wives busy. Tyler and Jacoby on his first day of medical school. I asked for a picture before he left and he said only if Jacoby could be in it. It'll be fun to take one every year of the two of them together and see how much they change. :) Tyler is such a hard worker and will do great in school. I know that it's going to be a lot of work, but it will be worth it.
I've been keeping busy and sane by working on little projects here and there. I've decided I'm going to do a series of posts of projects I've been working on, so I should be posting one pretty soon.

Hey! You got your signature working! Now help me figure out how to fix mine. What is that darling cover up you're wearing? I don't remember that. Great idea with the wagon. I'm glad you're staying busy and meeting new people.

Yay for the first day! It should be a little celebration for both of you. We're so proud of Tyler, and we know it isn't easy being in a program like the one he's in. But before you know it, you'll look back and say, "Where the heck did the time go? And where did you get all this gray hair?" Ha ha. He's going to do great.

I really hope the time in Arizona goes well for both of you, but I miss you like crazy. Love you lots!

It is pretty exciting for the first day to finally be here. I know Tyler is going to be great and you are going to be a really supportive wife--always making sure he gets good food to eat and a nice home to come to. I know it is going to be worth it and your family will be blessed in the long run. Just know that we are all here, ready to talk on the phone or skype and always missing all of you.
