Hola again from us . . . September 30,2013
The Audits are finished 100% before the deadline and we were second in the world - Mexico always seems to beat the Caribbean and they have 5 times the number of units! We are glad to get 100% in - many areas don't get that done. Then it all happens again starting in January. Now we are preparing for our 7 Assistant Auditors to gather here in November for a seminar. We did this last September right after we arrived - so it isn't quite the "unknown" that it was then. We just have to figure out the travel, meals, agenda for training etc. We think there will be two visitors from the Auditing Department in Salt Lake here to contribute and observe.

We fly to Arizona this Friday and will enjoy being with Jason/Angela and family a few days. We have some doctor appointments and will then drive to St. George and the Jera/Jordan house to meet newest grandson Miles at 3 months old and on to Pleasant Grove to be with Jenna/Lane and then our annual training in Salt Lake - which is the reason for the trip. We are excited to be able to see all our "kids" except the Florida ones on this jaunt home. We are really looking forward to it!! One thing we will be hauling home is a 4 foot carved mask that we bought . . . Chuck thinks it won't be "any problem at all" . . . . we'll see!
Our work/life seems to be pretty routine these days with our schedule the same each week . . . which is good and we love all that we are involved in and the wonderful people we associate with.
It will be great to watch General Conference this weekend. For our friends that have never seen a session of General Conference of our "Mormon" faith - it is held twice a year in Salt Lake City and you can get full coverage at http://www.lds.org/. It is always uplifting and timely for our day - teaching about gospel principles and encouragement in living the commandments given us by a loving Heavenly Father.
LOVE TO ALL . . . hope life is treating you well with wonderful blessings to recognize in your daily lives!! xoxoxoxo Lots of Love . . . Mom and Dad, Chuck and Vickie, Grandma and Grandpa xoxoxo
