The Homecoming

We were so excited to welcome my brother home from his mission in South Korea. We waited two years for Jorden’s return and we were all giddy as we waited in the airport with balloons and signs. Upon completing his mission, Jorden traveled around the world for 19 hours to…

We had high intentions of going boating this morning. Sure, it was overcast and raining as it has been every day for the last 3 weeks, but we didn’t want to wait any longer to take the boat out on it’s maiden voyage of the season. After a late start…
