I still can't believe it has been one year already. Yes, I miss this guy, but he is loving his mission and we just love reading about all his experiences. He is loving Idaho and the people where he has served. He has had great companions.
Today a few of his buddies came over, and we celebrated the one year mark. I love these guys. None of them are members of the Church, but they have been such a great support to him. We had Subway sandwiches, pistachio pudding salad, broccoli/cauliflower salad and, of course, DEATH BY CHOCOLATE. I think they were very happy when they realized I made more than JUST THIS ONE.
We shared stories and I shared a bunch of pictures with them. It was fun to hear about the things they are doing--school, jobs, etc. I have known most of them since they were in elementary school and it is so fun to watch them become such fabulous young men. I know they miss Elder Rob.
Allan was not able to be here with them, but they were very happy when I told them that he wants to barbeque steaks for them one night, so now we just have to come up with a date. I will love having them in our home again.
