The Future

April 8th, 2008 . by Melissa

Although we are in no hurry to get there, Jason and I often consider our wonderful future together. This happens a lot on Sundays at church with all of the cute families gathered around us, our 3 year old neighbors and their fun games of peek-a-boo over the pew. Yes, on Sundays we often speculate what joy our own little ones will bring us and wonder if our success at peek-a-boo will mean success in parenthood. But on Fridays…Well, last Friday Jase and I decided to hit up the ward party eager to mingle with our fellow ward members, possibly make a few new lifelong friendships. Jason had a bad feeling, but that was overpowered by my own eagerness to socialize. From the moment we walked into the stake center we were hit with the aura of children. No, not the stinky diaper aura, rather the story book themed, paper hat wearing, duck-duck goose aura. And when we walked into the cultural hall Jason’s bad feeling was confirmed, it was not a ward party but rather a primary activity with parents. We literally went in one yellow crepe papered door and out the other. Someday we will fit in that way, someday in our wonderful future.newmanfam1.jpg

    Glad to see Jason’s stick figures have survived. They came in really handy on the BYU photonics webpage as well.
