the end of "the flo" and another mission

This was the text I got from Drew last week...

And he was serious, because, as you can see... "the flo" is no more.

But dang, he look good, right?!

Recently Drew made an important decision.   Just like Sadie, he has decided to serve a full time (two year) mission for our church.  Last night he had his final interview and submitted the last of his paper work.  We should know where he's going in two to three weeks.  He's really hoping to go somewhere besides the United States.  My gut is that he's going to be sent somewhere that has some significant challenges...somewhere where he will need to learn a new language.  We'll see.  With everything in my life that has completely blown up recently, this will be another bitter sweet chapter in my motherhood journey.   Sadie still considers her mission to be one of the very best experiences of her life.  It is my hope that Drew's mission will also be amazing. 
Just like he is.  Sometimes I don't even have words to express how much I love these kids of mine.
They are my greatest strength and the reason I keep getting up and trying to move forward each and every day.
