Big Problems, Big Brothers

When Lily came home from school, the first question out of her mouth was, "When will Ben be home?"

She had some very difficult math homework, and she knew the best place to find help.
It's almost March, and Ben is trying to decide where he's headed for college in the fall before he leaves on his mission in January.
The prospect of these moments disappearing brings a few tears to my eyes.

I won't think about it until it's closer.

Sigh.  That didn't work.


  1. I would tell you it is easier the 2nd time, and in some ways it is...but you now know how stinkin' long 2 yrs really is!

  2. Love the photos!! Ben is such a great guy. Lucky Lily!

  3. My son and daughter left on missions at the same time. It was so fun to get their weekly letters! They had already been away at college, so I was used to them being gone. And oh the pictures!

  4. So sweet... Yes, you'll miss these times, but then there will be new ones to cherish. But you already know that.
