Last weekend Phyllis and Kathleen came to visit us and take us out to dinner. It was so fun to learn about their history with Joy and Ruth, they immediately felt like family. They took us to Tucanos and I was happily surprised when they helped themselves to plenty of meat, and felt totally comfortable in the high energy environment. We soon learned their father was a meat cutter- no wonder! :)

Jon got to help out Dr. Moore at a chiropractic both at a health fair this Monday. He learned how to do posture analysis, and learned a lot about different schools and the philosophy behind chiropractic medicine.

We've trained even more this week, and have been rolling our eyes at all of the rude people. A lot of kids come in expecting a 5 star resort and complain that the kitchen is too small, or ask how new we are when we ask the manager a question. We just swallow our words because they look around and soon realize that is by far the best housing for UVU students, and it is sooo much better than the other places around here. Certainly better than any other student housing I've lived in! We also had someone who was mad because there was a $3 charge for putting his deposit on his card. I believe thats pretty standard.. but we offered to refund his $3. (but I plan on explaining he should always expect that with rent or school) Just amazing the little experiences we're having :)

We've been told we can move in on Saturday *cross your fingers* The carpets are getting cleaned in the morning, so they'll be ready that afternoon. We are getting so excited, especially since we will be showing off our own condo to the prospective residents. This gives us an excellent excuse to decorate well, and really make it feel open and home-y. We feel truly blessed.

Boo for all the rude people! So much for the 5 Star Resort. Rick has a story about the I V students.
About a month after school had started, one student called the property managers and asked them when the maid was coming.!!!
