Surfing Sarah

There are a couple of stories from last week that I wanted to share. Last week was Sarah's spring break and while I wasn't able to do anything with her, Lisa and Sarah spent a lot of time together. Because I felt like I was missing out I decided to go and join them Thursday afternoon. For Christmas we gave Sarah some surfing lessons. She's the only kid who has really wanted to get into surfing but she is pretty much self taught and we thought she would enjoy some professional help.

She had her lessons on Thursday so I stopped by the beach on my way to the temple. I loved watching her. She's actually pretty good. I can't wait to see her in some big waves.
Of course I looked pretty funny there on the beach dressed for the temple. I looked even funnier once I took off my socks and shoes and rolled up my pant legs. Of course as always happens when you roll up your pant legs you can't help but walk too far out into the water and then along comes a big wave and your pants are all wet. That just meant that I looked even funnier walking into the temple with wet pants.
















































Another thing Lisa and Sarah did last week was go to the science museum. They have a booth there that takes your picture and then they show you what you're going to look like as you age. Not bad looking for a seventy year old woman is she? I'm glad to see she still has all her teeth.
I thought I would add this picture of her for a comparison.
