Oh gosh, I'm crying already! My littlest brother Trent just flew out today to go to the MTC. He'll be serving a mission (for the LDS church) in Switzerland. We won't see him for two years. And while I am tremendously proud of that great, great little man, I didn't realize how much I'd miss him. He hasn't even been gone one day yet. If you get to read this Tree Head, I love you so much. Do good. Life is sure going to get boring here without you! I know you'll do a great job.
Todd, my second brother is moving to Washington (state) this coming weekend with his wife. I'm going to miss the heck out of them too! I'm really glad that Suzanne and I had a few good months of walking together and getting to be closer. I love my family so much it hurts. I got to go for a
nice long run (10.7 miles) on Saturday with Todd and Trent. Saturday night I got to go out to dinner with the girls one last time before Suzanne leaves. Darn it sucks when siblings get old and move away! Here's an I love you for Todd and another one for Suzanne.
Here's a picture we took yesterday, one last day with everyone together for a while:

In front and middle - Liz used to be Bryan (John's wife), Jonni**, Justice*, Lydia (behind Justice)* Mom holding Erik** (She's in a wheel chair because she slipped on the ice a couple of weeks ago. She'll be fine.), Ross*, Mark*
Upon reading that caption, I realize that "Liz used to be Bryan" makes it sound like she's had a sex change. No folks, as far as I know, Liz has always been a Liz. Her last name used to be Bryan.
Jonni (the little girl in the front row) cracks me up in this picture!
Storytime: Breaking Bones - When I was in third grade, I wanted nothing more than to break a bone. I didn't care if it was a foot, leg, wrist, or arm--I just wanted an injury that wou...
