Gordon's "non-farewell"!

Gordon had his "non-farewell" on March 8th and Chris and I were able to be there. It was really great to see him one last time before his mission and it was a lot of fun. We got to see Natalie, David and Rylie, Grandparents, and lots of other family members. We heard Gordon speak in church about prayer and faith and he did really well. He's going to be a great missionary!!! We love him and are so proud of his decision to serve a mission. He's been preparing for it his whole life and the time has finally come! Here are a few pictures from that day. I'll post more later.

I love the pictures. I did not get many of his friends. To busy talking and doing food.

So I see you've been busy. I don't miss the stress of midterms, but I do miss the learning. Now I'm learning about Pokemon and Polly Pockets. I always thought Rexburg was the coldest place in the world. Who would live there? HaHa. But if you are really in the 60's, that's only a dream for me. Is all the snow melted? We've still got about another month before that happens. Fun for you to get to see Gordon off.

Hey Sister! sorry my response is so delayed I have been working like crazy. I am not exactly sure what our moving schedule is! I think Corey will be driving up to Twin Falls with John on Sunday. We don't have a ton of stuff just a small uhaul. I will have them call you and Chris by Saturday if they think they need help. I loaded it myself with Aimee and my Mom so I am thinking John and Corey should be able to unload it. You have no Idea how much I appreciate the offer though. It really means alot to know you guys are so willing to help! Love you!
