And so is Kyle!

We have them both now. Karolyn (our Ruuski, sp?) and Kyle (our Chileno) have returned from their missions and have brought a wonderful spirit to our home.

We are currently camping in the basement apartment of some good friends, but will be moving once again on Saturday. Our two youngest children have made all of this stress and mess seem insignificant as they have returned to us with their love and goodness and even some of their former craziness.
We are having a great time with them here. They begin school tomorrow at USU. Hopefully that will help them adjust to non-missionary life. Here are some pics:

Karolyn is Home!

We picked her up on Wednesday night at 8:36 p.m. at the SLC Airport. What an amazing experience--to see her descending the escalator to where we all stood waiting. She is so beautiful, so sweet and so huggable! It has been so fun to have her home this week. We are hearing a lot of Russian. She is trying to adjust back into civilian life and has at least adjusted to having her own cellphone again. We are moving in the next two days, first to a friend's basement apartment for 12 days, and then finally to the home we will be renting here in Logan on the 29th.

Kyle will be home from Chile on the 21st. He'll miss all the moving (and we'll miss his strong arms) but we'll have both missionaries home and ready to begin school at USU.

Their joint home
coming report will be on Sunday, August 30th in the Logan River 3rd Ward (corner of 100 East and 200 South ) at 11:30 a.m.
