Welcome to SUU!

We are now officially students of Southern Utah University!  I am so excited to be able to really get into my classes.  They seem like they will be fun, but definitely a challenge!  I have a few papers to write, observation and volunteer hours to do, and I have to make lesson plans and teach at a preschool a few days... eek!  I'm hoping my Pintrest obsession will finally pay off and I can hopefully find some fun ideas to do with the kiddos. (and if anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears!).

Last week I was feeling a little left out because everyone was posting pictures of their kids on the first day of school and remembered the good old days when Mom would take our pictures on our first day of school.  We were always in our favorite "new" outfits that we were had been waiting to wear, with our brand new shoes and pretty new hair cuts.

Since today was our first day at a new school, I thought I'd participate in the picture postings!

Scott's first day at SUU.

Britt's first day at SUU.
I know we're not as cute as all the kiddos, but we were still excited!

Quote of the day.

I love the Harry Potter series and the world that J.K. Rowling has created.  She not only created a fun exciting story line, but fictional characters that we can look up to.  I found this picture/quote fitting for starting a new school year.

Bye bye for now!

Goodbye Facebook, Hello Blogging!

Dear Facebook,

I hate your stinking guts. You made me Timeline. You are scum between my toes.



I decided it was time to join the blog world and abandon Facebook for a few different reasons.
1. I didn't want to change over to Timeline, yet it made me.
2. I can't control the information being posted on my wall for everyone else to see.
3. I really don't want to know what everyone is doing every moment of their day, I just want to know the important things, like... relationship updates, grand new adventures in life, and what not. (:

Now that I am done ranting about the dreaded Facebook, this is what is new happening in the Potter Life!

Scott and I are now living in Cedar City.  We have been here for almost two months and love it so far.
We've been married for over a year now, wow!

We'll both be starting school on Monday.  Scott is going to major in Chemistry with an emphasis in Healthcare, while I am going to major in Family Life and Human Development with an emphasis in Early Childhood Development. We are both looking forward to school starting so we have something to keep us busy, hopefully just not too busy!

Bye-bye for now!
