Jered Skousen Family update
I'll start off the updates, I guess.
The Jered Skousen family consists of Jered (I think), Grace Ann (my wife), Sarah Ann (14 1/2), Lisa (12), Taylor (11--he's a boy), and Adam (8 next week).
We live in Gilbert, AZ (suburb of Phoenix).
I work for National Instruments and am their best employee.
Grace Ann is loved by everyone in our current ward, our previous ward, and a ward in Page, AZ we only visited once.
All the kids are the smartest ones in their respective schools--and we have bumper stickers to prove it.
Sarah Ann plays the cello (best in her class), piano (could probably do it with her eyes closed), and is a Freshman of the Year at Mesquite High.
Lisa dances with a performance group (everyone in her group wishes they were as good as she), plays cello (best 6th grader in the state), and piano (the Brown family is always calling for advice).
Taylor is a world-class chess player, but humors the local school club each Monday, also plays cello and piano (at the top of his class) and baseball season is starting in 2 weeks (where he could play all 9 positions--at the same time).
Adam also plays chess--at a grand-master level--and piano (child prodigy).
Otherwise, not much to tell--we hate to boast.
