In the 24 hrs of Saturday evening to Sunday evening, my boys have kept us busy. All good stuff. On Saturday our Jordan proposed to his love Breana, and she agreed to be his for Eternity. She is good for him and he for her. Jordan was not experienced in the ways of dating and things before his mission, but everyone sees that once he served the Lord, the Lord blessed him. No hunting and searching needed. She is his. August 9th is the date....save it to help us celebrate.
On Sunday morning we awoke to head over to the Auburndale ward for Cody's "farewell" or speaking assignment in church. We filled the Chapel and then some. Tara and Randi sang, Grandma Pitt spoke, we could feel the love. He did an amazing job really, speaking on D&C 4:5. He truly does try to live those attributes, and is trying hard to emulate the things he has learned. We do so appreciate all those who have spent time teaching, encouraging Cody to be his best self as he enters the Lord's service. MTC here he comes. I know he will be all the better for it, and they will enjoy his tender heart and sense of humor. Going forth with Faith.
He is well loved as you can see from the family and friends that joined us for our breakfast Burrito brunch. Thanks to all for your love, and help, dear sisters and friends for rallying and helping with the crowd control of the hungry and young!Cody's extended "Riverside Family" and Grandma & Grandpa Holmes
Our Skyler graduated from Seminary... He has not been a hard one to get there, some mornings harder than others, and some days sleepier in class than others. But he did enjoy his experience, and knows that he started his day well, and it helped him as he faced High School. Special thanks to Sister Roberts, Brother and Sister Sistrunk these last two years....appreciate the love.
