And Drew will be serving a mission in...

Jackson, Mississippi!!!

Thanks to all of his amazing friends who showed up to to see Drew open his letter. 

He is so very happy and excited. I know the people of Jackson will love him (almost) as much as I do.
So incredibly proud of this kid. 
So grateful for the amazing privilege of being his mom.

summer and waiting by the mail box

California is always so good to us. 

I especially appreciated my time with baby Max.

Happy Birthday America. 

Beach time was also divine.

And I discovered something this year.  I actually do think Disneyland might just be one of the happiest places on earth. Especially when Gentry and I had a wheelchair pass. #nowaitinginline

My favorite....Gentry was still restricted to minimum walking, but it was really no problem.

The girls will start school in just two weeks.  
And the waiting part of this post? 
On July 12th, in Salt Lake City, Drew was assigned his mission call.  He has been diligently checking the mail for days.  We are hoping it will come this week for sure. 
I promise to post when we find out....
I keep thinking Japan?!
Dang, I am going to miss this kid so much.
