Looking back Part 1

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.
