Blake wrote up this mathematical equation as a challenge for a friend and he ended up in the school paper. Here is the article and the link below takes you to the real thing. Blake graduates at the end of July with a degree in math and then heads to Arizona to do his student teaching at a high school.
Jordyn broke her foot in an auto accident on May 18th, and has to be in a walking cast for 6 weeks. She would have liked to use crutches like Miss Mrya but was unable to do so due to other injuries from said accident. Myra severely sprained her ankle jumping off of stairs on June 1st, her last day of school. She bravely went to school for her last day and then to the Dr.s where she learned she will be wearing a special ankle brace and be on crutches for three weeks. Based on the time line both girls should be free and clear of uncomfortable foot supports about the same time.
On Saturday May 21, 2011 Kent and I received a call from an emergency room in Burley Idaho Hospital (on Jordyn's cell phone). The nurse on the other end said "Jordyn has been in a little accident but she is just fine." then went on to say things like "she is in x rays and cat scans now" "the car was t boned on her side" "they had to cut her out of the car" by now I am realizing this is not a "little" accident. The truth was, at that time the nurse didn't know the extent of Jordyn's injuries. In the end we are very grateful that it was just a couple of deep flesh wounds, a broken foot and some bruised organs (the usual, kidney, liver etc.) Here are some pictures.

One of two gashes by right arm pit (please tell me if this is to graphic, I find it interesting but Kent can't look at it)
One week later, Jordyn has seen a dentist and started repair to chipped teeth. Seen a Dr. and had stitches removed. Resumed class schedule (just in time for mid-semester finals), she uses a "back pack" on wheels to get around as she still can not carry weight on her back. She has resumed work out at the gym (upper body only). and is headed out for sushi as I write this.
