Mia June Cotting was born today. She was born at 1444. She measured 5 lbs 13 oz and 19 inches. Wendy and Mia are both doing great. They will be going home in a couple of days. We are very excited to have her join our family.
Today Jason started Paramedic School at the University of Utah. The program will run through some time in November and is expected to be very tough. We hope that this will help Jason get a job with a fire department once he has his paramedic certification.

Jason started his fire academy today that is being taught by West Valley City. This will get Jason his Firefighter certifications so he can apply to more departments in the future. We are hoping this will help him get on a fire department sooner. The academy will last until December.
