My missionary son has been gone for almost 9 months! He emails every week and sends photos and videos. He is doing great! He loves people and loves to serve and that pretty much sums up how a missionary spends their time. In the picture above he is second from the right holding a fire extinguisher. This group of missionaries is helping restore a home that was badly damaged due to severe weather.
On Sunday, my missionary will get to Facetime with us for Mother’s Day! Hooray!! Missionaries call home twice a year, on Christmas and Mother’s Day. I’m excited to get to talk to my boy. I’m feeling a bit nostalgic for how quickly the years pass, so here are a few shots of my oldest. <3
That boy of mine had a rough introduction to the world. He was born 11 weeks early and weighed 2 1/2 lbs. He spent the first 7 weeks and 2 days of his life in the NICU. He is 3 days old in this photo.
