So what do you know? I walk out to go to work today and my car, yes, that's right, my '88 Mazda has a shattered driver side front window. Why would someone want to break into that? I'm a little humbled because after Ryan's car got stolen I just laughed, and said, "That would never happen to my car..." Someone broke the window last night, but they didn't take anything. They attempted to steal the stereo, but for some reason, whether it be they got spooked or it was jammed, they failed. But, I still don't have a window! Needless to say, we are furious because this is the 3rd car incidence we've had since living in our apartment. The complex told us the security gates would be up at the end of May, well, they're still not running. We're so glad to have only another 6 weeks here!
So Ryan has finally started his flight school. It took so long to get things in order, so I feel bad because he's known he's wanted to do this for months, and he's just getting started. Luckily his trainer works with him at Skywest and has dedicated himself to Ryan for the Summer. He told Ryan that he'll have his Private Pilot's license (50 hours) by the end of the Summer. Yippee!!!!

We spent the 4th up in Perry again this year. The city puts on a men's softball tournament every year, which Ryan just loves to play in. He drove up Monday and played every day. Unfortunately, his team didn't make it to the tournament, which was on the 4th, dispite his two home runs, but we enjoyed watching all the games. They had a parade, and plenty of booths and food. We drove to Brigham City to watch the fireworks, which were wonderful, then set off some of our own at the house. It was a nice 3-day vacation. My 5 day break started today, so I've got lots of time to do whatever I want!

We've become fed up with our living situation so we looked into buying a house/condo. After deciding it would be best to get a condo, we looked for two days before finding "the one." We looked at it Friday, put an offer on it Monday, and closed that night. It's been really quick, but everything seems to be working out perfectly for us. The closing date is Friday, the 13th. Our lease ends Aug 31. We're going to get a new countertop, replace the kitchen linoleum with tile, as well as the hallway, and replace the bedroom carpets before moving in, so it will be great timing with our move out date. Here are some pictures of it: The kitchen is huge (13'x13.5') and it has laundry and a huge pantry also, which is the main reason we fell in love with it. Two beds one bath...and a fireplace!! The parking is underneath the building and has a storage unit there too. We get 4 total parking spots, so we won't have to fight for a good spot. It has a big patio which you can get to from the master bed or the living room. Also, cats are allowed. So pretty much, we're very excited! We plan on having a house warming party in a few months, so we'll keep you updated.
