This is a BIG week for our family!
Brooklynn celebrated 20 years of living! We got to talk with her on her birthday and it was such a special treat to sing to her miles away. She’s happily serving the people of Lancaster, California and shining a light wherever she goes.
David will be 10 on Friday! We’ve been reminiscing that he was Donovan’s age when we first moved here. He has been counting down the days because he does not love being 9. I guess 10 is a bit of a rite of passage at our house, that time when you are no longer a “little kid” (though 10 is still so little from this Mama’s perspective).
Also happening Friday, Addie will graduate from high school! She will be leaving in just a few short weeks to head to college and I am really trying to prepare myself for that. She is an amazing young woman and will do great things, but man we are going to miss her! (Only boys from here on out!)
With all of this in mind, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland’s recent Facebook post resonated wholeheartedly with me. He said:
Seeing my grandchildren progress is a great thrill for a grandfather. My extended family is currently in the midst of some wonderful experiences—including the recent temple marriage of my grandson and his lovely bride and my granddaughter receiving her temple endowment and subsequent departure on her mission next month.
