Bodine got sick for a few days so that knocked us down, but we found a new gator and she is super awesome.  Shes had a really hard past year and her mom just went missing and she really wants to find a religion and we started teaching her and she loves the gospel so far!

Hello! How was your week? We kept busy trying to fix up the house. We are painting the brick on the outside and refinishing some windows. It takes a lot more work than you think. Dad has been helping a ton! We watched 2 extra kids this weekend. One was an 18 month old little girl that is half black! She was too cute!! So we heard the mission president put a stop to Monday fishing. What are you going to do for fun now? I'm surprised you don't play basketball. How are you and your companion getting along? Are you hoping to stay together the next transfer? We just got a new missionary he is 22 and from Arizona. He seems eager to get to work! I love seeing missionaries that are working hard and into the work.
Laton is teaching the first vision lesson in seminary next week. He has it memorized:) he loves going on splits.
Meghan has a piano recital this month. She is starting to play really well. She plays the guitar well too.
Jaidyn is tumbling and sassy as can be. She graduates from K this month:/ we love her little personality! She rides her bike like a champ!!!
Love you 50 million and can't wait to hear from you:) Tiffany and Jed got engaged:)
Love Mom
Sorry I havent written in a while, but this past week has been great.  There is this family (The Pughs), and they have this friend named Melissa that they wanted us to teach, so we said ok and we met with her that Thursday.  We started by getting to know her a lil bit, and come to find out she has had the hardest year.  First she had health problems, then they got worse, she had to move, she broke her hip, she almost died at least 3 times... Im talking about a really REALLY rough year. 

The first time we met with her it was a just get to know you meeting with our testimonies at the end of it, but the second time we met we had the opportunity to teach her about the plan of Salvation.  We were talking about in Heaven, how we believe that there are 3 kingdoms of glory, and how we cant even imagine how beautiful and great the lowest kingdom is.  then she asks why do we have to try to be our best when we know that we can make it to a place that is sooo beautiful.  And we thought and a story came to mind.  There once was a builder that was the absolute best at his job! He worked so hard and built the most beautiful homes that anyone has ever seen.  His time finally came to retire and he told his boss, but his boss begged him to build one last house.  He agreed and knowing that it was his last he slacked off on it and tried to hurry and get it done.  When he was done the boss came up to him, gave him a hug and said this house is my present to you... This house you built is for you to keep. Why would we slack, when we know that if we work hard to the end we will recieve the greatest blessing of all and that is living with our Heavenly Father.

We only get to live once, so why would we slack when we know the reward of trying to be the best that we can be! I love you guys and hope all is well
p.s We have another meeting with Melissa on Tuesday :)

Hello! How was your week? Did you send out a large email to everyone last week? If you did I didn't get it. We had the missionaries for dinner tonight. One of our favorite missionaries is going home this week. We are sad to see him go but he is done. He is from Blackfoot. We are going to try and go to his homecoming to surprise him. When are your next transfers? It seems they should be soon. Can you believe on May 20th you will be out 6 months??? It is going by so fast. One of the sets of missionaries in our ward set a record last week and taught 32 lessons in one week. Laton went along and taught 17 of them with them. He has the first 2 lessons down! Do you remember Amanda Dieter from our store? She is going to take the discussions.
Things are going well here. Jaidyn is having lots of fun in her last month of kindergarten. I don't want her to grow up. She is getting so big and is such a joy. I love her cuddles! Meghan loves going to young women's and doing all her church stuff. She is excited to go to camp this year. I'm staying busy being the taxi and doing my callings. I love the gospel and am so thankful for it! We have been having scripture study every morning and night. I need to get better at my personal prayers. Some nights I fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. I have a goal to be more prayerful. I love you and am thankful for the service you are doing! Love you 50 million!! Mom

>> I just wanted you to know that you have raised jones right  my mother in law had them over for dinner the other night and she called me and was so impressed with your son because when all the other Elders got up after eating and walked away he stood up and helped wash dishes and even took out the trash . She is 80 and is not easily impressed but he left a great impact on her . Thank you  Kim
