We have been to all of our classes!

Jon really likes his first aid class. On his first day the teacher passed around pictures of severed limbs and deep wounds to desensitize the students. Apparently those pictures will passed around each class period. First aid is set up to be very hands-on and user-friendly. Jon thinks the teacher has a really realistic approach to the class. There will be skill tests that are pass / fail, and if you fail you basically do it again until you pass.

My family recreation class seems like it will be really fun. The teacher has set up the class in how I feel I would set up a class.. so clearly it really appeals to me. Everything we learn in the class, she said, we will use again in our lives. We have lecture Monday and Wednesday, and Friday we take a weekly quiz (so no midterms) and then we will play different games that can be used as wholesome recreational activities for families.
I am also continually thrilled with my New Testament class. My teacher reads straight from his Greek translation of the Bible and refers to early-Christian writings that he has gotten to translate himself. He has a very scholarly mannerism :)

Jessica and I went to Lori's wedding reception on Thursday night. Unfortunately Jon could not accompany us because he was too busy looking at severed limbs that night. It was soo fun to see all of the family. I loved talking to Heather (Tanner) and Michelle. I also had a great talk with Uncle Charlie about photo-shop and digital photography.
Here are just a couple of pictures:

Lori looked soo beautiful! And was still her loveable tom-boy self, even in the big white dress.Jessica, Dave, Lori and I. (this is not my favorite picture of myself.. but mom really wanted to see my new haircut)

We are happy it is the weekend! I hope everyone has a good one!
