Missionary Monday

One year ago, there was a whole lot of packing going on around here.A trip to the MTC and our Jordan became...
Elder Jordan.
Notice how I could not let go of his arm. June 25 marks the halfway point.
One year down, one more to go. Don't get me wrong, there is no place I would rather have him be than serving a mission and representing our Savior, it is just such. a. long. time.
Heaven help us all. Six months until our next phone call.

One year?!? Already? So fast to me, but what do I know. My pregnancy probably went fast to you, and let me tell you, it was not fast! :)

Everyone always says "already"? It went so fast! But they aren't counting every.single.day.and.minute.
I feel your joy at having him serve and I know your pain at missing him.
But hump day is huge! Let the downhill slide begin:)

It has already been a year!?! Wow, time flies faster and faster all the time!

(ps I love that everyone's comments are the same!)

Wingtips...Andrea kills me.

Man...I can't believe that before I know it my little men will be on missions. Whoa.

I want your nephew Sam and my Brian to be companions. That would be so awesome.

Congrats on making it a year. It is a sacrifice for the young man to serve AND for his mom to have him serve.

Every time I hear there is a transfer I wait anxiously to see if that Elder comes here...
