This is where my parents are headed ...

Before receiving their mission call, my parents' bishop and stake president said they had received a call from the mission office. This call was to say they had a special assignment for my parents, and that it was going to cost more than my parents had planned on spending on their mission. My parents accepted the news and waited for their call to come. Due to Memorial Day, the call was a day "late" arriving ... and when they opened their call I don't think this is what any of us were thinking:



Sure enough, my parents are headed to the Nebraska, Omaha mission to do facilities management. Who knew Nebraska was pricey. :) Their MTC date was to be June 15, which is more than two weeks before their availability date. Fortunately (for them and us!) they're now not leaving until June 29 so my dad can fulfill some other obligations. By the way, our addition was not one of them! :)

My parents will be awesome missionaries. Although I'm very excited for them to have this awesome experience they have planned for years, I sure will miss them!

We know of a couple that lives in Nebraska that I would love to see learn the gospel. Missionaries have come to their door and they are always very nice to them. They live in Lincoln and are in their 50's-60's. If your parents are in Lincoln let me know and we will get them together.

How exciting. In response to your question about 2 yrs being too much for a preschool group-I would not recommend it. By the second year, most of them already were taught everything to be ready for kindergarten, and it felt very tedious. I would recommend a play group for the first year so that they get to socialize and maybe do a craft project or story time along with it. I'm taking next year off of preschooling with Danny and we will just organize a play group instead.
