Called To Serve!!!

We are so excited. My youngest brother, Jeff, just got his mission call and he is going to the Uruguay, Montevideo Mission. Jeff is such a good sport.....he received his call on Friday morning and wanted the whole family to be there when he opened it. So, Friday night my family met for dinner in Provo and then came to our house to open it. He is so excited for where he has been called to serve. He enters the MTC on June 18, 2008. We are going to miss him so much, but are so proud of him for his example and desire to serve a mission. Congrats Jeff.....We love you!

That is so amazing! He is such a good kid and will do a great job! Good luck Jeff!

Please tell me Jeff isn't really old enough to go on a mission! I remember when he was just a little boy. (This is making me feel ancient; I can't believe I'm old enough to say things like "I remember when he was just a little boy." Yikes.)

That is such exciting news, though, congrats, Jeff!

Yeah! I'm with Miranda though, maybe Jeff ought to show us some ID before her struts off to some foreign country! Where has the time gone! Tell him congrats for me that is really exciting.

That's so exciting! Your mom is going to be very busy women the next couple of months with a newborn, wedding and future missionary. Wow! I had a great time today too! Let's keep it on the feast side instead of the famine.

That is so exciting. I don't really know Jeff at all but if he's anything like his older sister, he will do great! How fun for your family.

Hi Marcae,
I love you, When Terri said she saw you I was freaking out because I was supposed to go to Tai Pan with her, but I had to work. I work at Gymboree if you are ever shopping on your way through. I love the new blog, new thoughts and letting progression take a role in your life. I love that your keeping Kate alive because it is a treasure to remember. LOve you Tami

Congrats to your brother! I can't believe he is old enough to serve a mission. I still remember when I met him at my first Roper family Christmas party (he was so little!)

I am so excited for your little girl to come. I am sure you are right--she and Kate are getting in some quality sister time. Matt keeps telling me the same thing about our baby and my mom. It is fun and comforting to know the gospel and know that our families are forever!

You are such an amazing person!
