Papa and Grammie are missionaries! Three weeks ago they left for the MTC in Provo and one week ago they left for the Puerto Rico San Juan East Mission. So far they are doing great and loving every minute. We are so proud of them and we enjoy hearing about their adventure. Luckily, as senior missionaries, they don't have as strict of rules regarding Internet and cell phones. Sadie loves getting my phone out of my purse and saying "Papa phone". Many times we get a hold of him or at least get a returned call that same day.
It turned out great for us that Mike's graduation was the weekend before they left for the mission field. We got one last visit in!
We went to the Raleigh Temple.
We went strawberry picking.
We went to graduation.
We had a family night lesson about missionaries. The only missionary pictures we had were of young elders and sisters... so we had to settle for grandma and grandpa pictures. Sadie was a little confused about the fact the that senior missionaries in the pictures were not at all like her grandparent missionaries!
We got to sing while Grammie played the piano.
We are thankful for the time we had to spend together. We love you!
