Canada, eh?

Exciting things happened over at the Call house yesterday! After a few weeks of waiting (ever so patiently…haha) my little brother’s mission call came! We are all so excited for him to serve…in Canada! He graduates this May and, much to my mother’s dismay ;), when he turned in his papers he put his graduation date, May 22, as his availability date. His wish was granted! He is so excited about missing graduation and going to the MTC instead!

I stole this video from my mom’s blog, I think Ellie and I have watched it at least ten times! (And yes, they did almost forget to call me. Hilarious! Hahaha.) We are so proud of you Spenc!

    For some reason, these videos always make my eyes get teary! There's just something about a young man dedicating two years of his life to the Lord and being so excited for it. Thank you for sharing. And Congrats to your brother for serving in Calgary! Wahoo!

    It's that still, small voice that we have to listen to, cause that's what reminded me to call you!!! It had been a C R A Z Y morning getting everything ready!! Then, bam!, everyone showed up and it was time!! So as we were all gathered together…all eyes on Spencer….a little, teeny tiny, smaller than a whisper rang through my head "don't forget to call Alexa…." AHHHHHHH!!!! I will be FOREVER grateful for that still small voice!!! It saved me!!! It only took a minute to get the three of you on the phone and we were all set. Plus, it makes a great story 🙂 Love you so much Lex! The three of you are just amazing! Thanks for all of your love and support, and the darling decorations you made for his BIG day! Everyone loved them. I'll put up more pics and video soon! Love ya!

    mission videos are the best… I always get a little teary eyed. ESPECIALLY when mama and the missionee get choked up.

    Congratulations Elder Call. Welcome to the work.

    Calgary, that's where I call home. Even though I haven't lived there in years, there isn't a month that I don't miss the open sky, gorgeous mountians, and slower pace in life. Congratulations to your brother 🙂
