Last night Jared had his first experience of going through the temple. It was a very nice evening and things were perfect! It was a happy/sad experience for me. Very happy for Jared to be taking this big step, sad because he's the youngest and I won't have that experience again. Sorry there are no pictures, but it was dark when we came out! I would have loved a picture of Jared all dressed up in a suit! Since we have not done his mission shopping, he borrowed a suit from Randy, and he looked pretty grown up and dignified! Thanks for being such a good kid Jared, I love you!

Our baby boy, Jared received his mission call today!!!! He is going to serve in the Illinois, Peoria mission. He leaves on January 6th. I have to say that as his mother I am relieved that he is staying in the United States! It will be much easier to mail things to him for one thing! I can't really believe that this is happening, I mean is he really this old? Is he really ready? He is a very mature, dependable, knowlegable young man, but he is my baby! I'm really not sure I'm ready for him to be gone, he and I have had a lot of time with just the two of us and I've loved every minute. Have I taught him everything I should have? I don't know, but it's a little late to worry about that now! I'm sure he will be a tremendous hard working, obediant missionary. I love you Jared and I'm really proud of you!
