Here are the pics of Jacob w/Mom & Dad at his baptism.

Okay I'm back in the blogging world again! May was a very busy month for us. We started out with Jacob's baptism the second saturday of May. It was a really nice program. Thank you to the friends and family who made it there.
If you weren't there you missed out
on Jacob singing a solo! During the baptism
our family sang the song "The Family is of God"
and Jacob sang one of the verses by himself. It was
very sweet and I was so proud of him!


Yeah Geoff graduated!! The stinker kept us on the edge of our seats until the week of graduation! He had flunked English the semester before and was making it up with an online class.
But then the second semester of school he was once again flunking English!!
We kept in touch with his teacher via email and
received the final word from her on Monday the 18th
that he had made up enough work and done extra credit
to ensure that he would actually pass! Graduation was Thursday, the 21st!

After all that he managed to even graduate with honors!

Grandpa Phillips made it to see the miracle of Geoff

Such a fun night! It rained pretty much the whole time. We had fun sitting with Ted's cousin Kristi and her husband David. And Kathy Lopez from our ward joined us too. Thanks to Kristi and David we had towels and blankets to sit on during graduation, cause those bleachers were soaked! This is the second year in a row that Westwood has graduated in the rain. Jessica's graduation last year got rained out. But I think they were better prepare for it this year. Who would have thought that we would have to consider rain in the equation for planning graduation here in Mesa AZ!!! Where it's usually so Dry!
