The Paperwork has been submitted!

Well, the time of waiting has come. Yesterday was the interview with the Stake President and all of Josh's mission paperwork was submitted. He passed--so far. Now we await "The Call." I think he is going to explode with excitement and anticipation. His mother and father are quite excited as well.

All these years of talking about and planning for a mission. It is hard to believe that the time is here. At the risk of being too sentimental, I will only say the time went by much quicker than I ever imagined.

I remember when Josh was a little tyke. One day I found him atop the back of our brown couch with a stick in his hand pointing it up high. I asked him what he was doing. He said he was Samuel on the wall with Jesus warning the Nephites that they were bad and needed to repent. He was such a cute, confident Samuel.

Please submit your guesses for where he will be called. There will probably not be a prize for a correct or close guess, but it is fun and helps to fill the waiting time.

Signing off for now,
The Mama
