Classmate Update - Susan Belnap

Remember how sad it was when one of our classmates moved?
It seemed like our little world was torn apart. When Susan Belnap's family moved to Arizona, many of us were extremely sad. I know that a few of our classmates kept in touch with her through the years, but a few weeks ago I heard from Susan and she said she would send an update and a picture of her family. I am so excited for you to see her beautiful family and hear about the recent "happenings" in her life. Thanks Susan, for sharing this with us. I hope you'll plan to come to our 40th (can you believe it???) class reunion in 2012! By the way, you're still as pretty as ever!

From Susan:

Hi everyone!  This is Susan Belnap Farmer.  I don't know how many of you remember me.  I moved from Moreland to Mesa, AZ in 1969.  My mom was in Idaho over Labor Day and saw Doug Murdock who told her about the blog.  It is so fun to find out about what a lot of you are doing.  I met my husband, Scott, at BYU and we were married April 28, 1977.  He is from Midway, Utah, but I was lucky in that he wanted to live in Arizona, so I am close to my parents and brothers and sisters. 

We have 5 kids and 3 grandkids.  (I am so jealous of those you who have so many grandkids!)  Our oldest, Jeff (the bald one in the picture) and his wife Zoie are the parents of those cuties, Hyrum-5, Emilee-3, and Ava Jane-5 months.  Jeff is in the army and is currently stationed in South Korea.  Zoie and kids are waiting in Riverton, Utah for their permission to join him.  Tori is our second, the girl on the right.  She and her husband live in Roswell, NM and, sadly, have not been able to have any children.  Our third, Danny, on the far left, married Paige June 18 of this year and live here in Mesa.  He is a Junior High history teacher.  Adam, #4, is in the middle in the picture and is currently going to BYU.  He will graduate in 2012 and is planning to go to medical school - hoping to be an orthopedic surgeon.  Our youngest, Stacie, the redhead 2nd from left, married Dan on August 19.  This has been a very busy summer!  They are currently at BYU also.  We miss having our family close to us.

Scott is blessed to be the Mesa, Arizona Temple recorder.  He started this calling/job November 1, 2009 and he says it is the best job in the world!  This has made it possible for me to be a temple worker also.  I schedule live ordinances on Tuesdays and am an ordinance worker on Fridays.  We have a good life here in Arizona.  If any of you would like to come down and warm up during those freezing Idaho winters, you are certainly welcome.  We have lovely winters!  And if you would like to come in the summer, we have a great pool!  Just don't come in August unless you really want to be miserable.  It is way hot and humid and yucky!  We put up with it for the wonderful rest of the year.  Would love to hear from any of you!  Susan
