Ephraim! Through and Through

I have just been in Ephraim Utah!! My first session of Ephraim was amazing! I had amazing girls and wonderful guys! I had two amazing Co Counselors and a wonderful roommate. I had the opportunity to be on Variety Show, so I got to pick acts and help put on the amazing show! One of the best acts we had was a Acappella group of 5 guys and they rocked the house! This week was amazing! And I had some amazing experiences and loved my kids so much! I love growing in the gospel and everyday I am more and more thankful to be a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

This is Sydney and I love her! She is from Cedar City, and is AMAZING! We loved having late night chats and sharing great experiences about our kids. She is awesome, I love her!

Here are some of my KIDS!

Thatcher Session 1 Holla!

Hey All So I just finished my SECOND session! So did anyone know how small Thatcher, AZ was? Because I did not! The wonderful Campus of Eastern Arizona and all of its facilities is at least 2 minutes apart from each other, 5 minutes maybe in a hurricane.. But seriously this campus was tiny, but almost a diamond in the rough because it was perfect for EFY! This session was fantastic, it was sad not having my first kids, but I loved my new kids all the same. What i love in particular is that they were all completely different, and by the end they were great friends. I know my sessions are only going to get better and better! Watch out Ephraim, because Counselor Kim is coming to town! :)

SO! A New Week= New Kids + New Co Co's!!

This is Jennifer! I love them both! They are both RM's and full of knowledge and greatness! They taught me so much and were so dang AWESOME!

Oh.. Boy...

Let me introduce Tallan to some of you who may not know of him. He is basically AMAZING, in every way possible. One of the Hardest things for me while being at EFY has being away from this fella. We met in March and have been dating for a couple months now. He is awesome and hilarious, and handsome, and a complete goof just like me. :) He makes me Happy!
