Brother from Another Mother Grows a Foot or Two...



That is a picture of Caleb and I. I have know that kid since he was five years old and wearing red footie pajamas. We have always been buddies. It has been fun to watch him grow through the years and to really become good friends with him. That is why, tonight, when I said goodbye to him for two years, it was hard.

For those of you who aren't LDS, or Mormon, Caleb has chosen to serve a two year mission for our church. Basically, young men aged 19 years old are assigned to a mission. There are thousands of missions on the planet. Caleb will serve in the Fortaleza, Brazil mission. He flies out on Monday and will serve for two years. Basically, a missionary gives up his, or her, life for two years to preach the gospel. This may be done going door to door or they may find people to teach in other ways. You may have seen missionaries before. They dress in suits and wear black name tags that have their name and the name of our church on it. They may have even knocked on your door before. They are very nice. I would recommend you letting them in and talking with them sometime. Their message is amazing and has changed my life for the good.

Anyway, Caleb is an awesome kid and I look forward to hear of his adventure in Brazil. (and I may miss him just a little bit, but that is a secret, so don't tell anybody, ok?)

Not much else to report today. I hope your Monday was not Mundane or Manic but more Magical!

Hey, you should tell him to look out for Grant Zimmerman (elder Zimmerman), My friend Brenna's brother. He's also going into the MTC Wednesday the 17th:-), going to Pueblo Mexico.

Watch your damn language Morgan! HAHA. Thanks. It is funny because I do not notice stuff until I look at pics. I even said last night: "What is that skinny girl in that pic with Caleb?" I also almost peed my pants when your dad was trying to take the pics and had my phone backwards. It was hilarious.
