Long Over Due!

 I have been so horrible at updating this thing.  I don't know if anybody really looks at it to much, but if you do I am sorry.  I mostly like to update because I like looking back at the memories. Since I am not a scrapbooker and I am a horrible journal keeper it is good to have a few things here on this blog.  Anyway enough rambling. 

 These past couple weeks have been quite exciting in my family.  Carissa, my little sister, made the choice months and months ago that she was going on a mission.  I am so proud of her and this decision she has made.  I am so lucky to have such an amazing sister!  She received her call to Uruguay and had been so antsy to leave and get started with this new adventure.  She left for the Argentina MTC just this last Wednesday and we received an email the next day saying she had arrived safely!  I will really miss her these next 18 months, but am so excited for the things she will gain in her life for bringing the message of the gospel to the people of Uruguay!
Since she was going to the Argentina MTC we were able to take her to the airport and see her off instead of just dumping her on the curb at the Provo MTC!  
 Me and Carissa before she went through security!

This is Carissa and the other 2 sister missionaries that left
on the same day.  We were so relieved that she would have
some friends to make the trip with.

Good Luck Carissa! Love you!

My little brother, Ethan, has also made the choice to serve a mission and will be turning his papers in this month!  He was able to receive the Melchizedek Priesthood a couple weeks ago and it was a really neat experience.  He will turn 19 in July, so my parents are going to be down to 1 kid at home when he leaves.  That is going to be so weird!

As for Tyler and I, we are doing well.  Tyler graduates the first week of May and we are so excited to move on to the next step! He has worked so hard to get to this point in his life and I couldn't be any prouder! He has had quite a few interviews with different companies and has heard back from a couple that would like him, but he is still waiting to hear from the one he really wants to get.  This is the stressful part........ I hate last minute major decisions.  Oh well, I know things will work out the way they are meant to.  I am just not very patient!
