These Are Great Times

Although oftimes the days seem to run into each other when one is retired, there are those that stand out. Yesterday we had planned to go to the Mt. Timpanogos Temple with Rich and Sharon, but plans got changed, so Carl and I went to a session in the new Oquirrh Mountain Temple. Kind of nice because you can call ahead and get reservations. We love this temple--so calm and peaceful, as they all are, but this is less crowded and smaller.
Then today, Saturday, Curtis and Shandy had invited us to come down to observe Dexter's gymnastics class. What a treat--lots of cute kids ages from two to four, tumbling, running, and having a ball. The two teachers were so great with these kids. The biggest part of their job is getting the little ones to listen to directions, and those kids were great.

Here Dexter is being directed around an obstacle course. He is a serious listener, that little guy. Plus he was decked out in coordinated workout duds!
Look, Grandma and Grandpa, I can balance on the balance beam...(thanks, Mom, for helping out)
In this exercise, the student and a parent had "jousting sticks" made of soft foam rubber, the object being to knock each other off the beam. Of course, Dexter was the winner here.
We finished up the day with a long, long visit with Rich and Sharon. It seems so good to have them close once again. Boy, can we ever find things to talk about!

Dexter looks like his Daddy at that age--another QT Pie. It makes me laugh :)
