I Hope they Call Me on a Mission!!!

I just love this picture of my Todd and Angela. They are so cute and have grown up so fast. Todd is showing me in this picture that he has pretzels in his mouth. He has always been my pretzel boy. There has to be pretzels in my house always.

In May, Todd received his mission call. I have never seen a missionary as excited as he is and was on that day. He is going to be serving in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. I still can't believe that he will be leaving. He reports to the Missionary Training Center the first part of October. I hope we can keep him excited that long, but so far he has been keeping busy.

This has always been a big part of Todd's life to prepare for a mission and serve. I think it has become an even bigger part after seeing his older brother, as he has been serving and is serving in Ohio. It will be hard for these two brothers to not see each for four years. They just love each other and are very close. What a great blessing to have two boys that have wanted to give two years of their lives up to the Lord to serve and help others to come unto him. Todd will be a great missionary. He loves people, and truly cares about them. He also loves his Heavenly Father and family and that helps him to realize what is of most importance.

It will be hard to send Todd but it will be great two months later to get one of my missionaries home. What a crazy but wonderful time!!!!

I know I have promised to get better at this, but I just want you to know that I LOVE my life and it has been crazy, with new mission calls, baptisms from the other missionary and also going to Hawaii with my family and my mom, one of my deepest dreams. It has all been so rewarding. I want to share some of my soul with you and those things that I have felt lately. I hope to share SOON. (Maybe after cleaning up our flooded basement)

I know that I need to do so much to my blog, like add pictures, add background etc. I know that I have definitely neglected this part of my life. I can't believe that life has been that crazy for me. The last year has definitely been full of a lot of craziness.
I have been subbing a lot in schools, I just finished a long term sub in fourth grade and just loved it. My family and I am getting ready to go to Hawaii for ten days. I am so excited. I have been made the Primary President in my ward in my church( The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints) My son, Todd is turning in his missionary papers in this week and is so excited. AJ has been out on his mission for almost 16 months. He is doing great. Mike has retired and is working as human resources for the same place he was working. My kids are so awesome and I just love to spend time with them. The are getting so big that you wouldn't recognize them. I hope to update and put pictures on soon, but for now thanks to all who truly care and are my friends and my support.
