Pageant weeks are over.  We survived.  Your mom only fainted once.  We had two weeks of getting up at 5:00am every morning, except for one day, when we got up at 4:00am.  Most of the days were filled with lots if people in all the various sessions.  That part was very nice.  It was just the early mornings that got old.  It will be so great to be on our normal year around schedule starting tomorrow. 

Your mom got some kind of bug that kept her down for two days and feeling punky for a week.  She thinks she is over it now.  The first indication of anything wrong was when she fainted in initiatory.  That was embarrassing.  Luckily the bug didn't hit hard til Saturday night so she only missed Monday from the temple.  We also didn't go to the branch for the weekend.  By Monday night she was fine again.

They said this was the first year in the history of the pageant when there was no rain at all.  The days have also been fairly moderate.  It has been beautiful.  The problem is the farmers are all complaining.  The corn is all late coming because of no rain.  Thunderstorms are scheduled for this week so maybe that will get better.

We are so excited to hear from all of you at the reunion next week.  Thank you to Sandy and Kurt for planning it and to all who will help.

We love you all.
