Michael and I have been going to Orem's Citizen's Academy for the past couple of weeks. Citizen's Academy is a program Orem has set up for its citizens, where we go 3 hours each week and basically do and learn what the officers do. We went to the shooting range once and shot all the guns the police use, we did a building search and arrested a suspect, we learned how the detectives lure in online predators, the list goes on... this week we got a K-9 Demonstration. Our Orem K-9 Officers put us in Dog Bite Suits and basically let the K-9 chase us in the suits! It was pretty awesome! I got pulled down twice by Zorro, it was incredible how strong and fast they were! Michael was a little better, he was able to keep standing and basically swing the dog around while it clung on to Michael's arm! The dogs were sooo smart! They listened to the commands, knew when to stop or go or watch the suspect. It was absolutely amazing how well trained the K-9 were! We'll post some pictures as soon as we get them from the Sergeant!

Today Michael showed me how to play a song on the electric bass... but because my fingers were too short and totally not used to playing the bass, I decided to alter it so that it was easier for me to play... :D It didn't turn out as good as I imagined it would be, I still ended up getting blisters on my fingers! :(And yes... I look like a complete idiot!

For our annual Primary Class Party, Michael and i took the kids to Trafalga. We teach the 10, 11, 12 year old boys. There were about 8 of them and together we played miniature golf, drove the go carts, some went batting at the batting cages, and some played arcade games. The kids were all pretty good and had lots of fun! :D
March to the Go Carts!
