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.

I'm so excited that you have a blog! It was really fun to catch up with you guys! Your graduation pictures are so cute! I love that you and your dad ran a 1/2 marathon and that you took pictures! I would like to do that with my dad sometime! We're definitely having our movie night--that will be so much fun!

2008 was a good year for you! Your blog looks awesome! Don't even ask me how many times I've listened to "Over and over again." We have the same taste in music! That is funny that you almost got the same bed spread!
