Jordan's Graduation

Jordan's graduation turned out to be a memorable event for all of us.

We were able to see him walk the platform and receive the diploma -- complete with a reception with President Samuelson.

Then we went to Education Week -- Julie, Wendell, Mark and Cindy Bringhurst, and Jordan all attended with us. As usual, it was like drinking from a fire hose, but most rewarding.

Then it was off to DC where we toured the Pentagon and did the usual touristy things. I will never tire of the touristy things around DC. We were luckily there for Laura's birthday, which was a blast.

Then we all traveled to the Big Apple to see Jeff and do all the New York touristy things.

We went to the Statue of Liberty

The Boston Red Socks treated us to a 11 - 3 victory over the Yankees in one of the last few games to be played in Yankee Stadium.

We had a great time at the US Open. Michael John joined us for that affair. We saw some great tennis and I was in heaven for one blissful day.

Our final day was spent seeing "Wicked", which all who attended felt was incredible. Justin and I spent the time at ESPN Zone watching the US Open and the University of Utah embarrass Michigan in the first football game weekend of the year.

Jeff was a perfect host, and somehow managed to bed us all down in his apartment. It couldn't have been a more fun-filled time.

Laura still calls for Jordan everyday. She wakes up.."Where's Jordan?" She goes to sleep.."Night, night Jordan." We go to church.."That Jordan?" He left quite and impression on this young lady.

I didn't know Mary was going to get to go. How awesome! Did her and Chris get to go together w/o kids or did she brave the Bringhursts solo (not that she couldn't handle them)?

Silly Julie. That's our sister Jennie and her friend Amy who went kid free. Not Mary. Perhaps you need me to loan you my non-prescription glasses?
