David was ordained to the Melchizedek Priesthood and the office of an Elder, Matthew was ordained as a Teacher in the Aaronic Priesthood, and Joseph was ordained to the Aaronic Priesthood as a Deacon. It was so fantastic. We had all nine kids under our roof at the same time, which hasn't been that uncommon this summer, but won't last for long.
See, David leaves tomorrow for BYU, and Mary on Friday. Deborah continues to work graveyard shifts. By next spring, Mary is looking towards a study abroad in London and David will be leaving on his mission in the summer. Last night, for our last Family Home Evening with everyone for a while, we played Phase 10. It was great to laugh together and kid around. I'll always treasure this memory.

waving to our local heros.
A quick side note: Last weekend was our hometown parade. It marked Aaron's 3rd parade! YEA!! Check out his progress through the years.
