John and Rita were married on September 9, 1988. In the last 20 years our family grew to eight crazy but wonderful people. We enjoy living in Eagar located in the white mountains of Arizona. My kids have great friends in RoundValley and love the mountain life. Today has been a fun day! Dont get me wrong there is alot of work to do around here. The chickens and horses need to be cared for every day and the cow needs to be milked morning and night. Rulon and Ryan had to spend their morning splitting and stacking wood and then helping their Dad build a coop for the chickens. But after chores were done there was time for Christie to ride horses with friends. Rulon to go fishing with his friends and I tried to help Kylie, Ryan and Kate fly Kites. I'm not very good at it so soon all the kids went into the house to play the Wii but we tried! Cammie is living in Thatcher. She took some classes at E.A. this year but decided she would like to go to cosmetology school next year for hair and makeup art. We are very proud of her and the responsible young lady she is. She works hard and is wise with her money. Christie graduates in may and will be leaving us soon. It will be sad to have those two fun girls gone. We are still busy though with Rulon, Kylie, Ryan and Kate. We just finished basketball and now everyone is running track and also working on football. There is no off season for Football in Roundvalley but my boys love it. I'm proud of all my children and their desire to choose the right even when they have to stand alone or with a small group. I'm grateful for my husband and proud of his hard work to provide for his family. We have always had everything we needed thanks to his hard work and the blessings from our Father in Heaven.
