Dearest Mother,Great email from you like always thanks so much! I could really just read and read all day about what is going on at home! I love it so much! I DIDN¨T EVEN REALIZE SUMMER WAS COMING FOR THE KIDS! That is so weird! I completely forgot that school ended in May. Actually I don´t think I forgot, I just didn´t even think about it. Man that is so crazy! How are the kids doing? Are they excited for Summer? I am so happy for little Joely Oley :) He is so great and part of me wishes I could be there for his graduation on Thursday but I will get to see pictures which is almost just as great :) I was just thinking the other day that this year for our family is SO CRAZY!!! There are like 50 things happening and they are all huge!! Kari and Kylie are pregnant and are going to have their babes, Shaun got married, Erik WILL get married (I am crossing my fingers for that one ;) ), Joel graduates high school and leaves for his mission to the Phillipines (I still haven´t figured out how to spell that), and I am sure many other great things are just awaiting us. Our family Christmas card this year will be fun haha!! :) I am really so grateful to have such a wonderful family. I LOVE telling the new people we meet about my family and showing them the picture of all of us in front of the red barn in dv. Even though they all always tell me that my sisters are all gorgeous and that I look bigger now hahaha, I still love showing them and telling them about you all. It makes me so happy to know that through the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the truths that have been restored to modern day prophets of God, my family can enter the Celestial Kingdom and live together forever. My mission has helped me so much to understand more the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I thought I understood it before my mission because it seems so simple. And it is, but now it means so much more to me. Repentance means so much more to me and I love teaching it to those who are seeking it and who are seeking change in their lives through a better way, or the way of Christ. I know that Christ has redeemed us and saved us from physical and spiritual death and that His Atonement is the way to Him.
