Tim opens his call...

 Since Diana was still in the hospital Tim got to open his call twice.  He opened it the first time with his parents and siblings in the hospital, and then opened again with family and friends at the Batson's home in Clay Springs.  There were so many people there, which is a sign of how much this kid is Loved by so many.  I had been asking Tim yes or no questions about where he was going and when he told me he was speaking English I was confident that he wouldn't be going too far...until he told me he would still be going foreign.  So then I started thinking of all the foreign places he could go and still speak English...Africa was the furthest place from my mind.  He was called to the Zambia, Lusaka Mission and reports June 23rd!!  We are gonna miss this kid!!

General Conference Trip...

It's kind of a Tenney Family tradition to take your kid that's getting ready to graduate to conference their senior year.  Well with us having been gone robotics to CA and soon to be going to MO, we figured we probably shouldn't leave all of our kids again.  Plus let's be's nearly impossible to find a babysitter multiple times in a short period of time.  So we decided last minute to take all the kids to Utah with us for conference.  Grandma and Grandpa Martineau said they'd keep the kids not old enough to go to conference.

 Brandon and Porter ended up getting the stomach bug so I took these kids to conference...Tristen, Paul, Eva, Amelia, and Michael

 It was a ton of fun hanging with Brandon's family...some of my kids hadn't seen their uncles and aunts in almost 4 years.
No trip to Ogden is complete without Farr Better IceCream!!

Super-Regionals Robotics...

 With Diana still being in the hospital, Brandon and I got to drive the kids to the Super-Regional Robotics competition in Oakland, CA.  It was a BLAST!  I love road trips, especially when I get to explore new places.  Going to into San Francisco was amazing...I just wish we had more time.  I guess we will have to go back some time!

Our first day there we took a boat to San Fran and spent a few hours checking it out.  I loved every minute of it.  How hotel was right down the street from China Town so that was entertaining.  We had a great time, ate great food, and made great memories.  The Robotics team ended up placing in the top 20 and advancing on to the World Competition in St. Louis, MO, which I will post about later!  

Way to go Jaegers!
