Last week I was in San Diego so that I could be home when my little brother Alex got home from his mission. For those of you who are not LDS, young men from our church can choose to serve a two year mission. While on their missions, you can only write them, and talk to them on Mother's Day and at Christmas time. So it is a huge sacrifice for these young men and their families.
I have officially done this three times now with my three brothers, and am happy I don't have to be away from anyone in my family for that long for awhile :)
So happy we have some pictures and a video that captured the experience of seeing a loved one you havn't seen in years. Of course you can hear me sobbing in the video, a little embarrassing, but I couldn't help it :)
Loved this one of my Dad :)
So happy to have my little brother home.
