The Temple - Rexburg, Idaho

On May 19, 2012 Collin attended the temple for his very first time. It was a wonderful experience. Surrounded by so many family members and friends he was pretty calm about it. He was excited. It was a pretty happy day as a parent, too. Sure grateful for that kid. He is definitely living worthy to be there.

This is a proud mom and dad!

The Call and all that Necessary Stuff

Collin received his call on March 28th. Here is the video of him opening his call. He now can pronounce the name and is eagerly (and nervously) awaiting July 11th to come. The passport is in hand; luggage is bought; enough stuff to fill the luggage is scattered all around the house awaiting the loading time; visa is in the works; sisters are talking about when the room switch is going to happen; a wonderful visit to the temple occurred; shots are up to date; Preach My Gospel is being studied; lots of advice has been received; and a young man is ready. Just a bit more to do in these next few weeks.
