So, it’s been a while since we last updated our blog and a lot has happened since then, so we’re not going to try and catch you up on it all. We have both turned a year older and had fairly quiet and mostly relaxing birthdays, although that was almost 2 months ago. About one month ago Dallin received a new calling into the Elders Quorum presidency and was released from Young Mens, which was surprising but also exciting.
More recently, Dallin finished his mid-year exams just over a week ago and we are waiting on the results, but he is confident that he did well in (or has at least passed) all his subjects. With only one year of his degree left we are looking forward to him finishing and being able to work.
The music school Kathryn has been working at for the past year closed at the end of last week. Our last week of lessons was followed by a good bye concert on 5 July. The closing of the school has been sad but also provided Kathryn with a wonderful opportunity to start her own business teaching piano. Almost all of the students that were at the school have moved with Kathryn which has been a great blessing as her workload will only increase slightly but it will result in a payrise! She starts teaching as of July 21 and is a little nervous but still quite excited.
We also just had a trip to Sydney to spend a few days with Callie, Luke and their families. We had a great time although Blaise and Lady were unwell for a bit of the time we were there. We were only there for a few days and as always, the time went too quickly and we wish we could have stayed for another week! We took the opportunity to go the Sydney Temple which for Kathryn was the first time she had done a full session in a temple other than Adelaide. The temple is such a beautiful place and we just love being there!
Love Kathryn & Dallin
