Florida, Orlando!!! English speaking! heard it!!  Johnathan opened his mission call today and is to report to the Provo MTC on August 3rd......  Our baby is due on the 10th, but the doctor said he would not let me go past the 3rd of August.  So I guess Johnathan gets his wish and most likely, he will be here to see the baby born and into the MTC before the Fall semester begins.  (So that when he returns he can jump right back into school!) 

We are very excited for him and know this is a call from the Lord which will provide the growth and development Johnathan needs and the people who he needs to touch.  Congratulations Johnathan!!  We are very proud of you!  (And we are so very grateful Kyle was able to call in when we opened up the letter!)

Mission Papers-----CHECK!

Johnathan's papers are in!  Now the wait for that magical, large, white envelope that will tell Johnathan where he will spend the next two years in the service of the Lord.

Stay tuned for the next update :-)

So again, things are kind of crazy here!!  Two weeks ago, I broke my right thumb, which makes typing, cooking, laundry, shopping, dishes, writing or signing my name all very interesting.  I have a new found respect for those with minor disabilities!  Oh! Did you want to know HOW I broke it??  Well don't laugh!  I was playing basketball with the young men after mutual one night...since three of them were mine.  And yes, I know I'm pregnant...but I have played with each pregnancy.  I try to be careful and not to play too hard.  Apparently I am still fast enough on defense to get my hands on the ball, but too old to do it fast enough to turn it the right way!

I had stopped Jacob at the top of the key.  He was passing the ball to his teammate at the bottom of the key and I stuck my hand into the pass at just the right time to receive the full force of the pass into my thumb.  So blogging has been a little difficult.

We did baptize Spencer!!  Hooray!!  Darren did a marvelous job and the program was wonderful.  We also ordained Daniel that evening and had Grandma and Grandpa there for the visit.
Johnathan should have his mission papers in.....we are still waiting to hear from him that they really are in!!  And he gets home in a little less than three weeks.........but........
Here is the big news you are waiting for........we are having a BOY!!  Can you believe it?!  Me either!!  I guess I am destined to spend the rest of my days in the scouting program and raising priesthood men!  No name yet....still working on that :-)

I am getting a little more excited that we are really having a baby.  I know once he is placed in my arms....I will melt, just like I have with each and every one as I marvel at the entire process!
