my lap top is broken and i feel so disconnected from the world. i can't upload, edit or do anything with my pictures and so my blog has been suffering a little bit. so here is a small update. Jordan left for his mission. My little brother is growing up and doing bigger and better things. He has actually already been gone for a month and has made it to Kentucky! He is doing so good and i am not even going to sugar coat this..Mondays have become my favorite day of the week because I love to get his email! I am so proud of him and the sacrifices he has made to do this! He is a great missionary and I can't hear all about his wonderful experiences!
