We stayed in Utah until Wednesday. Monday Scott and I spent the day car shopping. We did research online and then headed up to Ogden and picked up a van. It's 8 years newer than our old van. It's still old and might be a lemon. Fingers crossed. Tuesday was pioneer day and we swam in Sarah's pool (Clark's girlfriend). After that some of us went to Incredibles 2 and the rest went to Ant Man 2. We then had burgers with all the good stuff and Jeff's homemade peach ice cream. Yum! The fireworks show was especially intense as some of them sent out sparks farther than expected! On Wednesday the kids had one last hoorah and played on the slip and slide. We headed home and our "new" van drove really well.
Nothing much else has been going on since we've been back. I tried to teach as many classes as I could to make up for my vacation time. I've put in an application with two other companies and haven't heard back yet. The one company said they get hundreds of applications a day. I don't know if that's true but teaching ESL online is a popular gig. I just checked with the one company and an interview slot opened up tonight at 12:30 am. I don't think I can handle that especially since I'm getting up early to teach. Ugh. I think I'll keep hoping for another opening.
I took the kids to play at the river on Friday and we floated the ditch at DeMeyer park today. I can't believe it's almost August! Crazy.
