Blake leaves on his mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in a little over two weeks. This past Thursday, Blake and Trevor flew home from BYU. Trevor leaves tomorrow to go back to Utah. It’s been wonderful to have our whole family together here in Virginia before Blake leaves for two years to serve in the Arizona Scottsdale Mission.
On Saturday, we went as a family to the Washington DC Temple. This was the first time our entire family was able to be there together. As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we go to the temple to make further promises to follow God and to receive instruction and learning.
On Sunday, we had a BBQ with friends and extended family. Afterwards, our family went into DC to walk around the mall and take pictures. This weekend will be a weekend I remember for a long time. My heart felt very full being surrounded by those I love all weekend long.
