Farewell-More Weekend Fun


Our weekend didn't end with those sports games on Saturday. Sunday was actually a beautiful day, but at the same time emotional. Chanse (you all know Chanse by now. He is the darling BF) He is leaving on a two year mission for our church on Oct 14th. He will be going to Argentina and learning to speak Spanish. His farewell was Sunday. So in a nutshell that means he got the great opportunity of speaking in church.

Chanse is a very shy and quite kind of guy. (Moms-watch out for those quite ones. They tend to real the moms in and wrap themselves around your little finger without you even knowing it) The church was filled to the brim with people. As I watched him on the stand before he spoke he was as white as paste. YIKES I thought he was going to pass out. Good thing I know CPR. He told me the night before that he was very nervous and doesn't like to speak in public.

Anyway, once he got up to the pulpit you would have thought he was a pro. His talk was so amazing that it made the hair on my arms stand up. I am so very proud of my daughter in her decision to support him for the next two years. Trust me you will hear lots about Chanse for the next two years. I am also so proud of her decision in picking such an outstanding young man to fall in love with.

Yikes it's going to be a long two years. The entire family is already missing him. I guess I had better brush up on my Spanish just in case he forgets how to speak English.-HaHa. In the mean time I think I have the perfect layout for these photos that are hot off the press. Check back soon.

Oh so sad! Well I a mean it is great that Chanse is going on a mission but 2 years is a long time. It will be neat to see if she waits.

My brother went to Salta Argentina. It was quite a culture shock for a small town boy but he survived just fine. Hope your daughter survives! Love the cards from the expo too!
