Returned with Honor

My nephew returned from his 2 year mission to Seattle, Washington today.

The family couldn't be prouder of his decision to serve the Lord with dignity, coming home a strong faithful servant.

We love you Elder Larsen!!

When we were kids the number one rule in the house was not to embarrass in public.

My dad was amazing at teaching us and maintaining dignity in the family

As an adult I am so fortunate that I work for an organization that has these same fundamental values that I grew up with.  Having this same value system helps decision making simple, makes mentoring people easier, and makes my life much more rich.

The day 22 stressed me out

My only goal on 4/18 was to get REM graduation pictures done and get her announcement completed

Somewhere between the get ready pic and the posing Tarzan declared that he found our new home (What?##@%#?? we have the perfect home)

Somewhere between creating finishing the shoot and creating this he convinced me to come see the home because the adddress is 2222, and there is 22 houses in the community. REM didnt help the cause by saying "Mom, today is 4/18 that equals 22"

The first viewing

And 9 days later an offer was made.

Side note - we closed on 5/22

(Move in expected at the end of June - in process of a small :"remodel" first)
