While we've been out...

So as promised, here is an update on what has been going on with the Shaws since last we wrote.

At the end of April, Clayton graduated from BYU with a degree in Exercise Science. I wish I actually had better pictures of him walking, but the department is pretty big and we didn't have the best seating. But here are some pictures from afterwards. This is not the end however. Clay will be taking the year off to improve is requirements for grad school, and we will be applying as soon as August. He'll be going in to Physical Therapy. Right now, our top two choices for schools are UofU and UNLV, but we'll obviously go where ever we are accpeted. Right now he is working with a physical therapist and will soon be taking some independent study courses to improve his GPA. He will also retake the GRE to up that score too.

Shortly after graduation, we took a trip to Disneyland. I swear that half of Utah was there. We ran into a lot of LDS people and it made waiting in lines a lot more pleasant. Not that the lines were very long. The longest we waited in line was 30 minutes, and that was for the Peter Pan ride. We went on on the major attractions three or four times a piece. On our last day, it was overcast and in the low 70's. Because of this, we were able to walk right on to Splash Mountains. After we got back there was no line so they let us go again, this time we got a boat all to ourselves. We seized the opportunity and got a great least we think so. We also really enjoyed the Tower of Terror, and Soarin' Over California. It was a lot of fun to get away. The weather was great, the crowds weren't too big, and we had a lot of fun.

We are looking forward to see all of our family this summer. Both of our families are coming to Utah within the next month and we are so excited to see you all!

Updates to come...

I have more time this summer so there is no excuse for me not to update more regularly. Wish me luck because we know how bad I am about updating:)

In the next week, I will add some pictures and a new post for some of the more exciting events that have happened.
