That's right...I have...

TWO Amazing brothers. Devyn received his call yesterday (Saturday) saying he is to serve in the Fort Lauderdale, Florida Spanish speaking mission! Whoo! So...for those keeping tabs...that's TWO wonderful, not so young anymore, men serving missions on the east coast...both spanish...both will be in the MTC at about the same time. Derek reports May before my birthday...Devyn reports June 10th. It's fun to see where life is taking them and to see the decisions they are making along the way. I feel blessed to know that I have willing and able brothers to do the Lords work, and even if they didn't choose that path, I have a feeling they would have served another way.
I'm just so excited! Also...a little sad...2 years is a long time...BUT, as you know...time and I are best friends...and I think it will be a little easier to say see ya later this time around. I just pray that they will be safe and healthy and have a good experience.

One some other news, Luis has a doctors appointment for his visa on monday. That is just another step closer to having him home. So close. After a while you think...this is getting so old...and you have a lot of "really? did that seriously just happen..." moments. or at least I do but they are slowly coming to an end...I hope.
I finally had enough money to send Luis for his glasses...he is pretty much blind and scares the jeepers out of me when he is driving...the fact that he drives a motorcycle may have something to do with that...ANYWHO...he now has glasses and I think he looks pretty darn cute. Yay for not blind husbands!

Well spring break is over. I worked the whole time. Awesome. Back to school tomorrow and a fun filled week of work. Can't wait. Hold me back.

The Big Day!

Sooo....kinda got some good news...

Luis has an interview scheduled for his visa on April 22nd! Whoooo!!!

He goes in, gets evaluated and then of course...our favorite part...wait...but just a little bit longer. It could be a couple of days to a couple of weeks before he gets called back and told whether or not he has permission to immigrate to the U.S.
Our lawyer says we have a strong case so really we shouldn't worry, and I'm not to worried, but of course I can't help it.

Things are starting to look up!

It's amazing the things they (derek and devyn) have accomplished. Devyn is almost done with his paperwork and derek will be jetting off may 20th...the day before my birthday...
I'm so excited!
