In May of 2012 Oldest Graduated and many visitors came to support him! In a place like St George you don't come just to sit at a 2 hr. graduation............. You enjoy ALL things outdoors!
And we did just that!
We visited Pioneer Park, Sand hollow State Park, the Temple, went swimming, played Putt Putt and of course went to an awesome graduation (pictures were posted in an earlier post.....like when it happened :).
It was a great week!
Thanks again to ALL our awesome supporters!
So I have to put a note in about this little guy..........he is the youngest grandchild and my baby brother's youngest child. And if you can't tell by the pictures this was the first time we got to meet him.
So as I look back I remember Nov. 1st, 2012 as a very big day at our house................
First it was Youngest's 14th birthday.........
And 2nd Oldest got a letter in the mail he had been waiting 2 weeks for..................
Oldest received his mission call on his sister's birthday after he had been staking the mail box out for a week. She was so kind to share her day with her big brother. They are very close and I believe she thought of it as a privilege!
He received his call to Kyiv, Ukraine, but since then has returned home to for medical reasons. This whole experience has been an eye opener for us and a reminder that the Lord knows where we are needed and what we can do in our lives to help others.
So for Halloween this year we had a ward Halloween carnival. On Halloween the girls went to help at the neighbors spook alley they set up for the carnival. So as teenagers "to old to Trick or Treat" they had a great time I think.
