Joseph started homeschooling part time. It's going pretty well so far. His books all came on Friday and he's really excited about the material. Here's hoping it continues that way. So far, I'm loving the extra time we get to spend together.

for the basement bedrooms!

|Aaron's kind of figuring that he's|
been there, done that, and you're
not supposed to be awake in the
OR anyway. So he's checking out
while his brothers "operate."
But the highlight of the week was Wednesday. Mary's mission call came! She's going to be serving in the Canada Vancouver Mission and leaves for the MTC (missionary training center) on April 3rd. The mission actually covers most of British Columbia. She will have a great chance to see a lot of beautiful places. There's a link to her blog (her dad called her his MissionMary many years ago) on the left side. Right now, it's just a couple of pictures and the video of her opening her call. We are all so excited for her!
