"I hope they call me on a mission"

Today being mother's Day, we got to talk to our missionaries. Logan was so happy to say "hi" and to sing to them. It is so crazy how time flies. David is going to be coming home from Brazil this fall. Logan was just starting to stand up when David left. Now he is walking and talking and running... Judd has been in Korea for almost half a year. We miss them and Logan prays for them everyday. It is funny how different each of our brothers are and how different the places were that they were sent, but they are both maturing so much and growing up. Here are some of the most recent pictures that we have received from them. Heaven forbid they send a "normal" picture...
Here is David contemplating eating an ugly bug. He has been serving in the office as a historian/everything needed on a computer, for about 7 months. Even though most of his time has been spent behind a desk, he has been blessed to still get the chance to teach in the evenings and has enjoyed success in finding some great people to teach. He sounds good, has a heavy accent and kept slipping Portuguese words into his sentences.
Here is Judd in his last area which was also my last area, Kimcheon. He has been learning the language and getting used to the food. He has always been really upbeat which is a good attribute to have when you are a missionary in the land of the morning calm. He was just transferred to Cheju island and is loving it there. The teaching is a little bit of a challenge and the people are stubborned but Judd seems to be loving it and really having a great time.

Isn't it amazing how much a mission can change a person? It's so nice to see those changes. You must be so happy to see them both grow so much! How cool is it that Judd is in your area? That's super awesome!

Your little man will be experiencing eating crazy bugs on his mission too! or at least posing for the camera! What a sweet post mommy!

What great role models you have for your sweet Logan. He'll be a great missionary some day.

I can't believe that is Judd all grown up and on a mission. How neat that you got to talk to him. We actually had a foreign exchange student from S. Korea with us last year. Judd should look him up! It is such a different culture. We learned a lot.

That's fun Logan has two uncles serving missions at the same time what good examples they are for little Logan! tiff

I didn't know that you served a mission... that's cool. And I'm glad that udd is doing well and enjoying his mission. That's the last one! It was wierd when Rodney, the baby, was on a mission. Are you having your baby soon?

Great pics! It was cute to see Logan singing on the phone. He's such a cute kid. And he knows quite a few songs for his age - very impressive.

Any day now! We're really excited for you guys! :)
