The day has finally arrived. Dustin has gone on his mission! He is serving a two year mission in Samara Russia mission. He is currently in the MTC for 12 weeks or so. I will post his address at the end of this blog. We have had a very busy few weeks getting all things ready. Kortney and Kennady came for a 2 week visit and have had the opportunity to spend some time with Dustin before he left.
Wednesday July 28th we arrived at the Springfield airport REALLY early. Dustin has been so busy the past few weeks getting in as much civilian life in that he has not had much sleep. It shows in this picture. One of the things that Dustin has been up to before he left was this... Ya- that is going to leave a mark! We went canoeing on the Eleven Point River a couple of weeks ago and there was a rope swing and Dustin managed to hang himself by his ankle. He later jumped off a wall into the water and hit his shin on a rock and put a pretty good hole in the same leg as this rope burn.Dustin has also been busy giving Moped rides out! This is on the way to the lake. Kortney got a turn. We are really enjoying the Moped. I sometimes ride it to work and really like it on nice weather days. Not so much on rainy days! Deigo got a ride!!
And so did Ava! And now time for the cute kid pictures! Grandma just follows Kennady around with a camera anytime she is around and sometimes I get some really cute ones. This is what I get when I tell her to smile!Does she look ornery or what!!!?She still loves to go to the Lake for a swim with her mom.Next week She and her mother head home and I will experience the "empty nest". Sad day for me. :(Dustin's MTC address is:
