Here, gathered in our beloved South Dakota, are a few members of our Williamson / Mattson Clan. Charles and Luella are to be blamed (be kind, they didn't know what they were doing). We're generally a happy bunch and somewhat intelligent (notwithstanding our tenuous grasp on reality). I'm also proud to say that most of us still have our teeth.

Averie DelGrosso Weds Chaunce Bird. Daxton Bodily is Born. The Dynasty Grows

From the Fortress of Solitude
Pleasant Grove

If you're anything like me, you find your allowable interest in certain subjects webs and flows depending on the season and spare time available; so it has been with the time I've had for family history. 

I will officially be retiring from the Alpine School District on June 1st.  It has been a wonderfully rewarding 30 year career, all at one school - Central Elementary in Pleasant Grove.  There is a part of me that will miss working at Central.  There is a bigger part of me excited for what's coming next - a new career working Renaissance Academy in Lehi Utah.

I'm a life long member of Workaholics Anonymous.  We Workaholics are drawn to work like flies to honey.  Our very reason for existence springs from the value of our work.  So, even though I'm retiring, I'm actually just switching jobs - teaching 6th grade and building a brand new, next generation space education center in a new junior high building set for construction at Renaissance ( a charter school) during this upcoming school year.   I'll be back to 60 hours per week, but I'm good with that for two reasons.

1.  A change is as good as a rest. It will be great to get back into the saddle at a new school. 
2.  I'll be getting two paychecks every month; a Utah State pension and Renaissance Academy
     teacher's wages and benefits.

I plan on continuing this family history blog, the updates won't be as frequent as they originally were, but more than the zero I was doing for the past several months.
