The Reunion..........

Here are some of the long awaited photos from the reunion. I would say it was successful and fun, but really I was running around like a chicken with it's head cut off so it seemed fun and successful, I sure hope it was. It was so good to see all the people that came out (Thanks!). We had dinner catered from Sammy's ,we had lots of prizes to give away, we had a walk down memory lane with some sweet photos and memorabilla, and we also had a great slideshow (I will try to post it so check back)

If anyone took more photos please email them to me provohigh2000@gmail.com so I can post them.

"We CANNOT wait to see everyone tomorrow!

If any of you are just now deciding to come, you can still pay via PayPal. We won't be taking money at the door unless you have arranged it with us.

We really want everyone to come and cannot wait to reunite and kick off the July 4th weekend together...PHS style!

We have planned for a memorabilia table and we would love contributions. Got an old Letterman jacket? Bring it! Some favorite dance photos? Dig 'em up!

We have worked so hard. We can't wait to see you all and promise a night of laid-back fun."

I just got back from my second tour in Afghanistan and at present I am a House Wife. I suck at it too! My wife get's mad when dinner isn't ready, lol; and I ended up tearing the oven apart because I thought the self cleaning mode switch thing was a child safe lock. My three cheese Texas Toast looked like a glistening scorched asteroid on the pan when it was all over. I think I'm going to go back to school and get a degree in something. Probably Aviation...
If you ask my wife Amber, she wold say that my private life is driven by seeking out new and more interesting ways of almost killing myself. However, professionally... After high school I went on a mission to Peru. After that, a career in graphic design that developed into a client management position at a design/advertising group in Provo for about 11 years. I also joined the Army reserve and completed two tours in Afghanistan developing governance, infrastructure, economy, and legislature in different provinces districts and villages along the Pakistani border. As a hobby, I try to secure investment for projects in Afghanistan that will ignite industry and provide alternative livelihoods for young men and women with no other means.
...And I play allot of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2/Nazi Zombies. My wife is a strong WAVGA (Women Against Video-games Association) supporter. HE HE HE!

After barely graduating from Provo High (darn student fees) I attended Utah State University and graduated in Apparel and Textiles, a fancy way of saying sewing. I met my husband, Paul, and we were married in 2002. We were convinced we would stay in Logan FOREVER but 3 years, 4 states, and 9 moves later (Arizona, Nebraska, Utah, and Montana) we ended up in Pleasant Grove and have been here ever since. We have 2 children, Luke (4) and Abby (2). We spend most of our time together outdoors, especially golfing and camping. As you can see I still LOVE to sew and spend most of my time making ridiculous theme costumes for Halloween (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, King Kong, Nacho Libre, Football Game).

Jill (Russon) Austad

After graduating from Provo High, I went to continue my education atBYU-I (Ricks) and then BYU. I was roommates with Terri Herrin atBYU-Idaho. I graduated in 2005 in Dietetics and then did aninternship through Utah State. While living in Syracuse (Utah), I metmy husband, Michael, who lived across the street. I moved back toProvo for a job and we dated long distance. After 6 months of dating,we married in the Bountiful temple and have been living in DavisCounty. We are looking to buy our first home. I married into afamily which my husband is the shortest (he's 5'11"). You can imaginehow I fit into the picture. I'm as tall as his 9 yr old neice! Whenwe got married, I had 3 part-time jobs and my husband was going toschool full-time and working. He recently graduated from Weber Statein Computer Programming and working his first job. I have workednumerous dietitian jobs till I found my love at Primary Children'sHospital working on the cancer floor. I recently spent numerous hoursstudying to be certified as a nutrition specialist in nutritionsupport and realized I have no desire to go back to school. We havebeen married for 2 1/2 years and love to travel. Our last vacationwas a cruise to the Virgin Islands. I'm excited to catch up witheveryone at the 10 year reunion!

After graduation, I went to UVSC and got my associates. I then transfered up to the University of Utah for my Bachelors in Biology. I lived in Salt Lake until 2006. I have been working as a paralegal since 2001 all while attending school in Salt Lake. I met my husband in Provo and got married in the summer of 2006 in the Provo temple, and we now have a beautiful 1 1/2 year old daughter named Kylee. We bought a cute little house in Orem that we fixed up and now call home!

What have I been up to in the last 10 years?

Well currently I have been married for 4 1/2 years, have one 9 month old baby boy, a yellow lab, work part-time as a Recreation Therapist and live in Logan.How I got there?

From graduation I went to Utah State for a year. Then decided to teach english in China for a semester. Came home and went on a mission to Sao Paulo, Brazil. After my mission I came back to Utah State for another year and decided to transfer to the University of Utah to finish my degree. During that year at Utah State though, I worked at Beaver Mountain Ski Resort as an instructor. It is there I met my husband Spencer Bott who worked in the ticket office and as a lifty. We courted through the winter by eating mac and cheese in the lifty shack. We then went long distance for four months while he worked in Alaska and after that summer were married in November of 2005. We lived in Salt Lake until I graduated then moved back up to Logan where Spencer started a cabinet business.

We have been in Logan now almost three years. We bought a home when we moved up here that was a junker inside and out and have been fixing it up thanks to my husbands sweet carpentry skills. I just barely put in a flower bed after having it bare or full of weeds for two years. We are perfecting our farming skills by now owning a very large garden and considering a chicken coop and a cow.

Our son was born after 4 years of me being too scared to have children but I am very grateful I finally got over that fear. He is super cute and has curly hair just like his dad.

Spencer is still doing his cabinet business part-time but has decided to also head in the direction of a paramedic/firefighter. He is currently in school and will hopefully be done in about 1 1/2 years.

The only sad thing to report in our life is that my mother passed away from cancer nine months ago. This was difficult being the only daughter, about to have the only grandson, and having her pass three weeks before he was born. We have survived though and I find I am stronger than I ever thought I was.

So that is my life. It has been mostly fun and rewarding. I am excited to see you all in a few days!
