I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. ~3John 1:4

With three of our children now serving in three different countries around the world, we thought this would be the best and easiest way for our friends and family to follow them on their journeys and watch as they learn, grow, and share their experiences. Lance is a combat medic in the US Army and is deployed to Afghanistan with the 101st Airborne Air Assault, Nicki is serving an 18-month mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in New Mexico, and Hunter is serving a two year mission in Honduras. We are so blessed!

Just a Day in the Life~

Life in Afghanistan seems to be pushing forward.  It seems like when it's busy it's super busy, and when it's slow everything seems to be at a stand still.  It's either go go go or hurry up and wait.  I think that's Army life for you in general.  Lance seems to be doing good though.....and still always a smile.  He never ceases to amaze me!  That kid can find a way to smile at just about anything (when he wants to..haha..wink wink Lance).  Something as simple as a sunset or seeing the unit dog walk through base, or even just a silly text from home.  Several different people have commented on how he always seems happy no matter his surroundings.  Not sure where he gets that from, but I'm so glad he's blessed with it!

We've been lucky to talk to him on the phone twice in the last 2 1/2 weeks or so!  I can't tell you how good it is to actually hear his voice!  Mom can tell a LOT by just hearing the sound of their voices.  And I can tell you he sounds awesome!  Tired...but awesome nonetheless!

He's on the left (like you couldn't tell!)

His latest request from home was the Tagalong (chocolate and peanut butter) Girl Scout cookies.  He said they're like gold there and you can barter and trade them for just about anything.  Rest assured they're on their way (along with all his other favorites, but he said for some reason the Tagalongs are valued most).  Go figure!
