We've had some beautiful weather the last couple of weeks. Fall is my favorite time of year. The days are warm, the sunlight comes at a different angle, leaves crunch under your feet and there is a hint of chill to the air.

This has been an exciting fall, as well. Last week, I was awarded the Award of Merit by the Boy Scouts of America for service to Scouting. We had a nice banquet where eight of us received this award. It was supposed to be a surprise, but someone had to fill out the form, and no one knew what I had been involved in over the years, so our bishop asked me to complete the form and then forget that I did it. It was interesting to go back to 1978 and remember all the positions I've held.

Also this past week, Courtney and Robert closed on their condo in North Salt Lake and officially moved out of mom and dad's house. They are such a cute couple; we'll miss them.

Brad and Mel made plans for next year. It looks like they will be in Normal, Illinois, for the next two years of their lives. Who comes up with these names?
