Our First Concert

Back on November 7th Shaun and I head up to Ogden to see the Hush Sound, Spill Canvas, Augustana, and OneRepublic is concert. It was the first concert that we had been to together and it was a lot of fun. We didn't end up getting to see Augustana perform because the lead singer had fallen off the stage at a concert a week or so before the concert we went to and had hurt himself pretty badly. I was sad because I was REALLY looking forward to seeing them in concert, but in the end it was okay. The concert was A LOT of fun!! Shaun even bought me a cute Hush Sound (the reason he wanted to go to the concert) shirt and hoodie. Here are some pictures:

The Hush Sound
(They are really good. If you haven't heard of them you should check them out)

The Spill Canvas
(I had not heard of them until I was checking out info on the concert, but they were also good)

OneRepublic
(They were AWESOME!! They have an amazing cello player. I loved listening to him play!)

Our calling

Well Shaun and I have been living in Riverton for just under a month now and are REALLY liking it! It is really nice to feel loved and accepted so quickly in a new ward. Last week we had an appointment with the Bishopric so they could get to know us and the first thing the Bishop said was "we have a calling for you." Then after a moments pause he said "well maybe we should get to know you a little bit before we dive into that."

Shaun and I will be jointly teach the Valiant 10A (not that the A part matters to you... There is just 2 Valiant 10's in our ward) in our ward primary. This will be my first "big" calling and I am really excited to get to know the primary kids. It will be nice to actually feel like we are a part of a ward, as I did in the last ward we were in.

Shaun and I don't have to teach until the new year, but next week they want us to go check out Primary and see how things are done.

I am excited to be able to teach these kids and get to know them and their parents better.
