May 2010: I attended Women's Conference at BYU with my friend, Jana Borgholthaus! I LOVE going to Women's Conference and come back trying to be a better wife, mother, grandma, sister, friend etc. ... I think I accomplish being a little better for at least a few days!!!
Eric was nominated as a Natural Helper at school.
April 2010: Taylor flew back with us from England to visit her mom in Boise for her Spring Break. Because of a Volcano in Iceland her trip was extended a couple of weeks. She was able to get back to England until May 3, 2010. Who would have thought a Volcano would disrupt air travel to all of Europe which affected travel to most parts of the World! CRAZY!
Bill found out that he was accepted into PA School in Texas -- YEAH!!! The HOWARD's will be moving to the USA!! I know Texas isn't too close but a LOT closer than England! Congratulations to Bill!
March 2010: For Spring Break .... Robert, Eric, and I went to England to visit Andrea, Bill, and the kids. We had a GREAT time and can't wait for them to move back to the USA!! We miss being around the grandkids!
January 2010: Jason enters the MTC for mission to the Philippine Cauayan Mission. We got to do the Curbside drop off which means you pull up to the curb at the MTC, get out his luggage, give hugs, and off he goes!! Eric gets his Driver's License! Watch out everyone!!
September 2009: Jason decided to go on a mission! Within a month, his papers were submitted and call received!! He will be going to the Philippine Cauayan Mission and will enter the Provo MTC on January 6th, 2010.
August 2009: School Started .... Eric is a Freshman in the High School. First year for the 9th Graders to be in the High School instead of at the Junior High.
July 2009: Andrea and the kids left to go back to England.
May 2009: Matthew enters MTC on May 20, 2009! Because of the Swine Flu he was told no hugs or handshakes were allowed. His group was the 2nd to the last group to be able to have their family attend and actually go in the MTC to watch a video, listen to the MTC President, and say your good-byes. From now on it is Curbside drop off!
April 2009: Busy getting Matthew ready for his Mission to the Puerto Rico San Juan West Mission.
March 2009: Andrea and kids came to visit for a few months. Bill was here for a couple of weeks. We had a lot of fun and miss having them around.

Oh the suspense -- I can hardly stand it!!!We were trying to get Jason (who was in Boise) and Andrea (who was in England) on the phone! The phone somehow hung up on each of them once before we finally got them on speaker phone.
Now where exactly is Puerto Rico . . . to help you here is a map!As far as we can tell -- Matthew's mission is a fairly new mission. They split the Puerto Rico San Juan mission into the Puerto Rico San Juan West & East missions. The West mission will take in the islands of Aruba, the Netherland Antilles, and parts of Puerto Rico.
None of us even came close to guessing where Matthew was going to go! I think most of us thought he would go Spanish speaking but to the CARIBBEAN -- I don't think that even crossed our minds!!
ANYONE WANNA GO ON A CRUISE IN A FEW MONTHS???
What's a missionary post without a couple then and now photos?!
CONGRATULATIONS -- Elder Matthew Ward!!!
