Random September

* * * * * * * * * * *
Bruce got his mission call and opened it with a huge crowd of our family around him. He has been called to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He has been called to labor in the: TAIWAN, TAIPEI Mission. He will learn the Mandarin Chinese language. He is so excited. He jumped up from his seat as he read where he was going and could hardly talk he was so excited. It was so much fun to watch him open his call. That is the same mission my brother John served in. He is happy to have someone else serve there who will be able to speak that language with him. CONGRATS BRUCE!!! We love you!

Bruce with his parents, Travis and Karey.

Colin, son of Nairn and Maria was given a name and a blessing in September. He is such a sweet and handsome boy.

This is Nathan on the morning he was flying back to serve the rest of his mission in Finland. He came home on a medical release because of a problem he was having with his knees. He was so happy he was able to go back to Finland to finish his mission. We miss him, but he is where he needs to be right now... serving the Lord and the people in Finland.

Agh. I hate seeing all of these fun moments that we miss out on, well, I like seeing them, but hate that we have to miss out on them. Looks like there is a lot of fun events and family gatherings going on.
Thanks for being the documentarian so we don't have to entirely miss out.

The picture of the lot of boys in Grandpa's truck made me feel sad for my boys. The three oldest would have been in that truck with those boys, that is their cousin crowd. Sad.
