It was one of those nights. You know where your brain just won't shut off. At least for me I've found I can't fight it, so I keep a paper and pen by my bed and write down those things that are keeping me awake. USUALLY this works, but I was up at 4:30am and the mind wouldn't shut off, so why fight it. Just get up and get the day going.
We are down to a WEEK! 7 Days! We gauge many things in our world according to a weeks time. It can seem like an eternity for a small child, yet God created the world in 6 days and rested for the 7th day. I kinda want this week to go by more slowly than usually, but I suspect it will go fairly quickly for us. A week from today we will be finishing up our packing and making the 3 hour drive to Provo. Tanner's drop off time is 1:45pm on the 16th. If there is one thing that I learned when we dropped of Joshua last September was don't go too early. The minutes seem like hours when you are waiting to drive through those pearly MTC gates.

|Character picture drawn during their trip to CA in Oct of 2009 - Bryon, Tanner and Thomas. I thought the artist did an excellent job of capturing their personalities along with their unique facial features. I just love Tanner's teeth!|

I was pleasantly surprised when I logged into the Missionary Portal tonight to see that Tanner has indeed been a busy boy! We are at a 100% Pre-MTC training done! Also when I arrived home today he was doing some research on the internet regarding his Sacrament talk. Nice work Elder!!
