Farewell and Such

Ryan spoke in church on January 20th. He did an awesome job! I can't think of one thing Ryan could have done better. The Bishop stood up after and complimented both Ryan and Tod on their talks. He told all the future missionaries that this is exactly what he expected from them when it is their turn to talk. After church we had everyone over for bagels and donuts. It was a Great day!

January 23rd Tod left for the MTC. Early in the morning both Ryan and Tod went to the temple with Bishop Jackson. Ryan Loves the temple. Both he and Tod went to the temple for the first time January  16th. They have both been back several times. It was a special day for me as all of my children were there in the temple together.
I ran to Tod's house to get a picture before he left. I am sure going to miss these 2 boys!

Last night Ryan was set apart as a missionary. The Stake Presidency and the Bishop came to our home. It was a truly inspirational experience. Ryan is a choice son and will be an awesome missionary. He received a lot of great advice as well as many blessings.

Monday, Ryan had the chance to fit in one last fishing trip. Ryan, Rick, Richard, Tom, Kevin and Ty all went ice fishing. I heard they had a blast!

Today we dropped Ryan off at the MTC. I have a lot of pictures, I will update later.
