Tell me about a typical day for you!

typical day… get up, go to class, go to breakfast, go to class, go to lunch, go to dinner, go to class.. go to room. go to bed. haha ina nutshell thats about it! we’re studying a lot about the lessons and how to find needs of an investigator! its so so fun and interesting! we have progressive investigators too which are teachers pretending to be inv.’s for us so we can treat it like a real situation each week. its great!
What time are you up?
630 each morning, unless its going to be a busy morning for everyone on my floor and then i get up early so i dont have to wait in the cold bathroom for a shower… that is not fun! haha

For months we have been collecting things, running around town shopping, cleaning out closets and packing Austin for his mission to Argentina. It seemed like a daunting task at first, but with the direction of the church we proceded to pack everything he needed into two bags not weighing more than fifty pound. Once the task was completed, Austin looked at these two bags and remarked about how little he really need. There it sat, in the livingroom, two suitcases filled with the next two years of his life. I think it was at that moment that he and I both realized more fully that this life is about the experiences we create and the people we touch not the things we have. We left the house Monday, and after a short and expensive detour that required a new transmission, we were off to Provo, Ut. This was a very fun family trip, it was exciting to start Austin off on a great adventure. Then Wednesday came and although this is what we have always hoped and prayed Austin would choose, we all felt like a little piece of our hearts were torn out and left on the curb at the MTC. And so we begin, with our first missionary, what has been called the best two years of a young man’s life.
