Livin' the Life :)

Me and Jena

Grandma Silcox, Me, and Grandma Kathy

Utah State Ambassadors

Me and Heidi
Wow! This weekend sure flew by! But can I just say; I am loving every second.. and just trying to soak everything in.
Quick Update: there are only one week and five six days left of school.. and then I graduate.. Have I really been here that long?! It doesn't feel like it.

Okay Where to begin! :) Friday I went up to Utah State to meet my new team. On the way up I stopped in Provo to go to lunch with one of my best friends, Heidi. It was just so fun to catch up and talk! Funny story okay so we are sitting there eating our lunch when this bee happens to fly on over and just land right by me.. So I try to keep myself composed. Heidi grabbed these guys that were sitting next to us and had them come and kill the bee. It was so funny. I am so grateful for laughter and good friends!
Next stop USU! Whoot Whoot! I am so excited to be going there in the fall.. and just being up there makes me want to be up there! I am excited to work with such cute and fun loving people. I can tell that I have a lot to learn, and that there are many adventures a head of me coming up. But I am looking forward to making new friends, and stretching myself next year.
Next stop home: I stopped in Kaysville late Friday night to sleep.
Next up Nephi: Okay quick story. Kena had a dance competition in St. George this weekend.. and she forgot her costume. So While I was home I grabbed the costume and dropped it off at my cousins house in Nephi early Saturday morning, and Shay drove to grab the dress and take it to St. George! Go Team Anderson! (or I guess Anderson/ Leavitt! :) )
Next Stop Noyes Building: I had a final for communications at 9:00 am on a Saturday morning. So having not combed my hair or brushing my teeth, I sauntered in approx 8:55.. aka right on time.
Next up Final Luncheon: For ambassadors we had our final's lunch in.. and I consider myself to be the LUCKIEST girl in the entire world because my two grandma's got to come down for that. It was so fun to have them down here and to show them where I live and where I go to school, and to have them meet some of my very best friends. It brings tears to my eyes.. because it was just so fun to see them.
Next Spring Ball: I Went to the Spring Ball with my one of my new really good friends; Jake Thomas. He is witty, funny, clever, and just so nice! And a great dancer. He knew all of these ballroom dances, and so we just danced the night away. Needless to say.. it was a BLAST!
Okay, wow.. long post! thanks for tuning in! :) Love ya!

haha.. so everyday I volunteer in Mrs. Nilsen's 1st grade class. They have now become my class :) haha.. I feel so possessive of my kids and how they are learning, and I get excited when they succeed, and get bummed out when they miss their math problems. I love Mrs. Nilsen, and she has really taken me under her wing. My grandma Kathy teaches first grade; and Mrs. Nilsen reminds me exactly of my Grandma Kathy. I have just grown to love this teacher.

.. Anyway, so that is a brief history prior to this story. Okay, so I am sitting there correcting homework when little Janna runs up to me and says Kylee, my tooth hurts so bad. I look at her, and that tooth was hanging by a string. Have you ever seen the cartoon movie.. I can't think of which one.. (Shay I know you will know what one I am thinking of) but one of the cartoon characters blows her tooth in and out cause it is so loose?. Pretty sure Janna could be this cartoon character. Haha.. So then I am laughing so hard because Mrs. Nilsen sees, and is just grabbing her stomach and saying "Janna, your going to have to wait until you get home to make that tooth feel better. You know how I can't handle loose teeth." I thought she was just kidding at first, but she was serious. I guess she gets so queezy at loose teeth. She told me that when her kids were little she would send them over to the neighbors house to have the neighbor pull the teeth because she couldn't handle it. So I was just in histarics laughing at Mrs. Nilsen's reaction. Anyway, So I said, "Janna, come here and let me have a look" So she did, and I said, "try to pull it out". She tried. It didn't come out. So I said okay, hand me a tissue. I was handed a tissue. And now for my moment of glory! Out pops the tooth! And Janna is just yelling, I can't tell from the pain or if it was more of a victory yell.. like an Oh ya! I just lost my tooth! Anyway, we got a tooth necklace from the office for her. And she did a show and tell, and told the whole class how "Teacher Kylee" pulled out her tooth for her. Wow, I felt like a Star! :) haha.. what a fun day in the first grade! I am so stoked to be a teacher!

Dream Big

(Ryan Shupe & The Rubberband)
When you cry, be sure to dry your eyes,'Cause better days are sure to come.And when you smile, be sure to smile wide,And don't let them know that they have won.And when you walk, walk with pride, And don't show the hurt inside,Because the pain will soon be gone.

And when you dream, dream big,As big as the ocean, blue.'Cause when you dream it might come true.So when you dream, dream big.

And when you laugh, be sure to laugh out loud,'Cause it will carry all your cares away. And when you see, see the beauty all around and in yourself,And it will help you feel okay. And when you pray, pray for strength to help you carry on, when the troubles come your way.
