Elder Bald Kid

My sweet boy sent us an Easter card and a small stack of pictures. The card was nice, but I needed those pictures. Already, I can see how this fellow is learning and growing…

and finding friends from school…


and finding pals from work…

and finding out who he really wants to be.

This boy of mine will be leaving soon from the Missionary Training Center to the other side of the world. In fact, he said, that the next letter we get will be the last hand written one for awhile, because…

he will be in Siberia. Mail is very slow from Siberia.


Everyone says to me, “It’s really cold there.”  That or, “Isn’t that where they take criminals?”

Apparently, they send some really good guys to this far away place too.

A very special one comes to mind.

~I love you my boy.

  1. How fun! He looks great and no doubt will be an awesome missionary – it’s got to make a mama’s heart swell!

  2. Such a crazy thought! It’s not new to think of him over there, but it’s strange to think we’re already at the place where he’s going to be there soon. So weird. I almost can’t imagine it… even though I can. Does that make any sense at all?

  3. Launi,
    I love this. I think he is awesome for going there and I know he will love it and do well. I would bet that he has a good heart.
    Bless you for all that you have done and continue to do to raise such good sons.

  4. The sooner he leaves, the sooner he comes home.

    The sooner he leaves, the sooner he comes home.

    Chanting it helps.

    I’m glad he’s having such an amazing experience already. I’m so proud of him!
