Homecoming (Stolen without remorse or permission from Meagan's blog.)

Seth came home from his mission in the Dominican Republic last Wednesday and it was a day to celebrate!
There are a million pictures and I have no apologies because it was a great day!
I think the thing that stood out in my mind the most were all the SMILES!!! Everyone was so genuinely happy. It was a little glimpse of heaven and I loved it!

Maren was a stellar poster board sign maker and almost everyone had a sign to hold up and a kazoo to make noise with. We were pretty darn loud. What's new, right? There was a big crowd with lots of family and friends at the airport. He sure is loved! 

Mom and Dad anxiously watching the TV screen at the airport. Dad timed it, you know, and once they show up on the screen you have 30 seconds before you see this...

Seth will speak in Church and report his mission Sunday, Nov 20th at 12:30 PM at the Tucson AZ West Stake Center  3530 W Magee  (Magee East of Thornydale)  Tucson, AZ

2 Days!!!!

Seth sent a short message today stating that his group (The missionaries he trained with in Provo and will leave with on Wed) was in the Institute in Santo Domingo taking a class on how to make a resume and how to take advantage of the Church's "Perpetual Education Fund"  (For native Dominicans who have served missions.)  He says he's anxious to get home but it doesn't seem real. 

He is threatening to hide in the airport instead of coming down the stairs when he gets here.  I told him we were going to hire a bum cab driver to hold up a cardboard sign with his name written in magic marker and WE were going to do the hiding.  He said if we did that he was going to wear the UGLY Dominican pants he had made there for pictures at the airport.

He has training today and then they get to do a little shopping tomorrow and he gets on a plane Wed at 4 AM.  He said to tell all his friends he will see them Thursday since we will be late getting home Wed night.
Can't wait, can't wait!
Seth will report his mission in Sacrament Meeting Sun Nov 20th at 12:30 PM at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints West Stake Center 3580 W Magee, Tucson AZ  (Magee just east of Thornydale)  All are invited and welcome.
