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!
