ROME!!















So my little sister Laura got her Mission call yesterday! She called me at about 12 noon and said it came in the mail. She was soooo excited and wanted to open it right then but Mom wouldn't let her open it until everyone was home from work. They arranged a conference call for 6 pm. I dont dont even know everyone who was on the phone...My parents and siblings, me and Chad, both sets of grandparents, my cousin Clara, my Aunt Leslie and Uncle Owen, I think I am forgetting someone...but it was pretty fun. Laura opened it with all of us listening intently. She will be serving in Rome Italy!! She will be going to the MTC in Provo for 9 weeks and will be learning Italian! She leaves April 30th!
So, I was way off with my guess of Texas! But that's ok...Italy is much cooler! Laura will be an amazing missionary! Everyone she meets likes her within seconds. She will do great! And she will be buying me some shoes and purses...right La?
Anyway, that is so exciting that I cant follow it with anything else...
