Just taking a look back at all the happenings in 2008
. The major event in the beginning of the year was in April when I graduated from BYU-Idaho with a degree in Family & Consumer Science Education
Composition. I know what a mouthfull. I started school way back when it was Ricks College in the summer of 2001. Took a little break to serve a mission on Temple Square. Then I returned and have finally finished!!!
My family was able to come out for it and it was such a memorable experience. I did it!!!
Then, in May, as a graduation present, Colby's family treated us to 3 days in Disneyland!!
I had never been there before. We had a lot of fun, but I think that three days might have been
a little much. But it was a good time and we loved it.
The next major even of the year was my father and I ran in the Teton Dam Marathon. Now I know many of you are thinking, "Tara you are not a runner and isn't your day a pretty big man"
Well, no, i'm not, and yes, he is. But bring it on because we did it. But it was only a half marathon.
Granted we had to walk a little, but by the tenth mile it was a cinch. It was so exhilirating to run across that finish line with everyone cheering for us. I had shirts made for us. On the front they said, "We Are Marshall" on the back they said, FATHER and DAUGHTER, usually where you have a last name. Everyone commented on them and loved it.
