The last 2 weeks have been so fun for us because we've gotten to see so much of our families! Last weekend, we had my sister and her husband, Reed's older brother Jay and his family, and Reed's parents (for a few hours!). They were all able to come to the last 2 regular season home matches against USC. Unfortunately, they didn't get to see Reed play much (mostly because it was senior night). But we had so much fun with them-especially when building a volleyball net in our kitchen!
This weekend my parents and my little brother Bryant stayed with us Friday night before heading up to BYU-I. Unfortunately, Reed had a calc final Friday night from 7-10 and a statics final Saturday morning from 7-10. But it was still good to have them here.
Saturday night Reed's parents were here for the quarterfinal game of the MPSF tournament when BYU hosted UC Irvine. I won't get into it to much because it just makes us all mad, but Reed didn't get to play. The coach pretty much made the worst decision ever and started the 3rd string setter that hasn't played all season in our first post season game. The Cougs took the first 2 games easily, but blew it at the end of the 3rd game. Finally after struggling much of the 4th game, Coach Patchell put the senior setter in and he finished off the Anteaters (pretty intimidating, huh?). It was the most disappointing win! We were all pretty upset that Reed and Brian have put in so much work this season to just get brushed off at the end like this. Hopefully next week will be better.
In other exciting news, I'm pulling out all my Tupperware and favorite casserole recipes because I was just called and the Compassionate Service Leader in our ward! I'm actually really excited for this calling and can't wait to start making meals for all the new moms in our ward!
This week Reed will be finishing up finals, going to California to play CSU Northridge in the semi-finals and hopefully playing in the conference championship, I'll be walking in graduation and enjoying all the family coming to town this week!

This weekend was also an awesome General Conference. Unfortunately, Reed didn't get to see any of the Saturday sessions. I personally loved the Solemn Assembly. It was so neat to see the General Authorities stand and sustain each other and then to get to do it myself. We are so thankful for President Monson and all our other leaders and for the unwavering structure of the Church.
