Here's a picture Marlo sent of Grandpa's funeral. I thought it was a very nice funeral, and I thought it'd be fun to share some things we remember about Grandpa. What do you guys remember about him? I remember some different things because I am the oldest, but my favorite is that he always called me Chela, and when he and grandma got back from Hawaii they brought us grass skirts and grandpa showed us how to hula dance. I wish I had that on video!
So I made it so that only the authors (aka us) can see the blog, so because of that, we can talk about whatever we want (including the new addition!) I put on a timeline for the baby so you all can see when he (as Cory says) is coming!!
You want to know what I do all day????? well before I got this computer from Mom and Dad we used to sit around and stare at each other.......... that's very boring. so now I have this clip on loop and my made does all the cleaning and cooking and she even goes to work for me and brings the money home. :)
I thought it'd be fun to start our new blog with a day in the life of everyone in the family. What do you do from sunup to sundown? I'll start with mine and Cory's.
We wake up about 6:00 everyday and get going early. I head off to school, or go for an hour walk and then head off to school (depending on the day), and Cory starts making his rounds to the contractors and running errands. His phone normally starts ringing at about 6:30 am and doesn't stop until about 6:30 pm... which is awesome because he really loves cell phones! ;) I teach my music for ballet dancers class on tuesday and thursdays, then I take a ballet class and then teach my ballet technique class at 11:30. On monday wednesday fridays, I take a music theory class at UVSC, then I take a ballet class, and teach my technique and pointe classes. I'm done pretty early in the afternoon, but still have a lot of prep time. I am teaching Dance as an Art Form- a general requirement for fine arts- next semester so I'm trying to get ready for that!
Cory loves his job and has been extremely successful at it. He just landed a major account which is great for us! :) He has been into catfishing lately and caught some gigantic ones on Utah Lake a few weeks ago with his Dad. He marinated and grilled them for us and they were pretty much the best fish I have ever tasted (I know all you fish-haters don't think there could be such a thing, but there is...) When he gets home, he relaxes for awhile and then he goes into the office, where he doesn't return for many hours. He has a busy school load this semester, and his math class especially requires a lot of work everyday.
I'm performing for the last time this weekend, and we are moving (again, unfortunately) this weekend as well, so this should be a fun week!
Can't wait to hear what you all do everyday and see some great pics!
Welcome to the new Billings Family Blog. Since we are so scattered now, I thought it'd be fun to keep in touch by doing the blog thing! You all are listed as authors, so all of you can post whenever you want, whatever you want! Let's keep in touch!
