I had one of those family history moment days. This will be one of those days I will always remember. I answered the telephone this morning to have my daughter Marie, crying into the phone. After realizing it was tears of joy I found out she had just received her mission call. Since she didn't know where we would be living when she put in her papers she had a friend receive it at their house. We had to hurry and pick up my daughter and rush to their house. Then in accordance with Marie's wishes, we went to Temple Square in Salt Lake City. We had to stand on the compass with the map of the world on it. We all huddled around as she opened and then read her mission call. She was called to serve in the Independence, Missouri Mission. She leaves for the MTC on August 2nd. I think when I counted it was 57 days away. It will just be no time at all and she will be gone. Wow, my little girl has grown up. Things will never be the same in this family. I remember when my brothers went on their missions - it wasn't long before everyone went this way and that. It was really hard for us to be all together at the same time and even get a family photo taken. Thats one of the things we have to do before Marie leaves - get new family photos.

I don't know if this is for her mission or if every mission is doing this, but she needs to fill out a four generation pedigree and have some stories of her ancestors to share. I think I will make her hunt for the answers and not just give her the pedigree. Well I guess she does already have that information. I will think of something family historyish for her to do. Wow - coolness, life is great!

See ya tomorrow, for tomorrow is always another genealogy day!
