So, after 8 great months of Taylor living with us and being my “manny” he has left us. He went home to say goodbye to friends and family and then he’s coming back for a few short days and then he’s off to the MTC for his mission to Spain. We are so proud of him. He has been such a blessing to our family especially with Brian’s accident. He’s so helpful with the kids. I kept asking him if he’d just rather serve me for two years but he’d already made up his mind. The people of Spain are so lucky to have such a great missionary. Taylor we love you. Dayne keeps asking when Taylor is coming back. When I say that he’s home visiting friends he says (all huffy and puffy) “Taylor’s never coming home to be mine uncle! When is he coming back?” It’s crazy that Bridget will be close to Dayne’s age when Taylor is back and Dayne will be in elementary school. I don’t know that I’m quite ready for all this change. 🙂 Thank you Taylor for all you’ve done for us. Love you!
Taylor’s going away party started at his & our favorite place-Costa Vida. I think he ate here a million times while living with us. I’m not thinkin’ he’ll get anything like it in Spain 😦
Saying our goodbyes at the airport. I had to hold back the lump and remind myself that it wasn’t the “official” goodbye, just temporary!
Brotherly love! It’s been great for Taylor and Brian to live together. Brian moved out of the house when Taylor was 10 so they have really been able to get to know each other and become great friends.
