Goodbye Matt!



My sweet brother Matt left on his mission last week. We had so much fun spending time with him these last few weeks in Utah. He is going to serve in the Spain, Madrid mission. The exact same mission that Dan served in. They are both very excited about that.
My kids will miss Matt so much. He is the rare type of person who, when your kids are crying, does not give them back to you until they are happy again. I have never seen a guys his age so great with kids. He loves them and they love him. As Gracie likes to say, "He's a good uncle."
We love you Matt and are so proud of you!

That's awesome for your brother - I remember him as a somewhat "lost", shall we say, teenager. You look great, but I must say that I'm upset you were in Provo/Utah and didn't call me :)

Hello!!! You are missed terribly. Just this morning we were getting ready to go to playgroup and Connor was knocking at the door asking to go play with Gracie.

Can't wait to see pictures once you get settled.
