Our Favorite Missionary.....

.....biggest news of the moment.  Our son, Zach (19) just left for a two-year mission for our church.  He reported to the MTC (missionary training center) in Provo, UT on November 2nd, where he will be studying the french language for 2 months before he leaves for Paris, France.  We miss him terribly....obviously this is bittersweet for our family.  For twenty four months we will need to communicate through letters and weekly emails instead of phone calls and text messages; he has put dating and his education on hold; he has set aside his athletic pursuits.   And to be perfectly honest....there isn't any other place I would rather him be, and nothing else I would rather him be doing....xoxo

Zach would love to hear from you!

Being in the temple with Zach and our family made for an amazing day.....One of the best days I've ever had as a mother.

Saying goodbye at the airport was so bittersweet.  I just kept thinking about how wonderful it was going to be in two years when he comes home.....
