Hello? Anybody there? Is this thing on?? I don't even remember how to get on blogger!
After much cajoling and pleading from my kids, I think that I may find some time to blog again. Life, it gets in the way of blogging! : )
Ah, so much to catch up on, I won't even try to do it all. The kids have grown, (after all it has been 2 years! What, 2 years?! You lazy bum!)
My mind has been on Joseph lately, He graduated, went off to BYU-I and LOVED it.
Joseph with his brothers and sister after graduation. Caden had already stripped out of his suit.
He turned 19 on January 31st and anxiously awaited the most important mail he is ever to receive in his life. IT came 3 days later and the family all joined us in the big open. Unfortunately I only have video, so no pics of the reading of "THE" letter. He will be leaving July 4th to serve the Lord for 2 years. His destination:
He couldn't be happier. He really wanted to go foreign. He has waited his whole life, (his words) to serve a mission. His best friend, and cousin leaves in 3 weeks for Salt Lake City. They are so excited to be out at the same time.
Tonight we are headed to the temple with Joseph. I am beyond excited for him to take this important step. I am crying as I sit here. : ) He is the Best big brother that parents could ask for. He is patient, kind, intuitive, and a wonderful example for his younger brothers and sister. He is the kid that comes out to the car and brings in the groceries and sleeping kids without even being asked. Man, I am going to miss this kid!!
