Actually, it is not for 1000 days. It is just that 3 years times 365 days plus June 27 through June 30, 2008 equals 1098 days, and that is way too cumbersome to convert into a blog headline. Futhermore, our release date will not be determined until May or June of 2011. Therefore, 1000 Days sounded just about right, more or less. Having noted all that, we are humbled and thrilled (Pres. Uchtdorf would refer to the feeling as "joyfully overwhelmed") about having this marvelous opportunity to serve in La Mision Mexico Veracruz.

Hawai'i and then the Mission

It only seems logical to visit Hawaii before heading out on a mission, especially because we have three grandsons there and the rent is free at Jon and Becca's house. Jane, Spencer, and Mason joined us. The first morning I went outside to study at about 6:30 a.m. Spencer was already on the beach reading his book of Mormon. This shot is taken from Bec's backyard. Their backdoor is about 40 or 50 yards from the sand where Spence is sitting.

Uncle Spencer thought this might serve as good control of his nephews, Carter and Caleb. It worked really well until high tide.
Mason is waiting for just the right set of waves.

We had a vote on which of these two photos of Kendall to publish.
It was a tie, so you get to see them both.

I like the top one. You can see his amazing eyes. I like the bottom one. You can see his adorable smile. I like Kendall. He's my heart-throb nephew.

Nice work, team! Way to bury your problems in the sand! Cute pic. How's Mason doing with the waves? It looks like too much fun. Super super dooper jealous....

Does Spencer have some Apache ancestry? That was the way the finished off their prisoners, wasn't it, buried up to their necks in the hot sun...? Except they did it in an ant hill.
