Here's a photo of our house while we were packing up our personal stuff last week, getting the house ready to be a vacation rental.
It looked a bit better when we finally left. We spent a day in Idaho Falls with Jon's parents and have been in Layton at my sister Ivy's house for the past couple of days. On Saturday, we saw BYU's production of Phantom of the Opera, in which my brother Ethan played first trumpet in the pit orchestra. It was great fun and at the end, Mira said, "I loved that so much!" even though about two thirds of the way through, she was moaning, "When is this going to be over?" (It's going to be delightful to travel with her.) Then spent some very pleasant hours with our friends the Ausbornes.
Today we went to church in Layton with Ivy's family and I kept thinking that next week we'll be experiencing church in Czech! We finished the Pimsleur lessons yesterday (there are 30 of them) -- Mám rád Prahu! -- but I'm pretty sure we'll understand next to nothing when we get there. It'll be fun! Right?
