The first part of September, I took Aaron to BYU-Idaho. On the way we stayed with my aunt and uncle in Nampa, then with my Dad and Step-mom in Aberdeen. It was so good to see family again. My step-mom recently spent 6 weeks in the hospital, so it was especially good to see her up and about. And it's always wonderful to spend time with my Dad.
Here is Aaron in his new apartment:
The three cabarellos. These guys went through Scouts together and were part of the Fab Five that got their Eagles. Isaac and Ben subsequently moved away from Eugene and served missions as well. Now they're back together. I hope they're still smiling after a few months of togetherness.
The guys seem to have a good sense of self-esteem.
Aaron seems excited and happy to be at BYU-Idaho. We had a great time.
In the evening, we attended a luau and Polynesian dancing show for new students. So fun! Here are a couple of clips. (We were in the back of the auditorium, so the quality of the pictures aren't very good, but they're enough to give you an idea. In the second one, someone walks in front of the camera towards the beginning. Don't panic.)
