Spencer's mission call opening!!!

Thursday morning right about 8am I received a phone call from our post office saying that Spencer's mission call had arrived and I could come down and pick it up!!
The plan had already been made...whatever day he received it, he would open it at lunch. So about 11:20am Thursday morning, Feb 7th, Spencer came home with Erin and about 50 other kids from school. There were friends, family, neighbors, coaches!! A huge support system!!

He was so cute! Nervous! Excited! And ready to go!

Special thanks to Yadi for video taping this for us!! And the tender mercy of me (last minute!!!) remembering that we needed to get Alexa, Gram, and Lynda on the phone!! I will be forever grateful for that tender mercy!! My brain was going a mile a minute all morning long!!

We are SO PROUD of you!!
Your mission is sooooooooo lucky to get you for the next 2 years!!
love ya, mom
