Has it been two years already?

Two years since Jim and I parted ways with EJ at the security gate and watched him talk to a random guy all the way through the security checkpoint. EJ seemed ready and excited to go. He didn't even look back and wave; he just WENT. I wonder if he's ready and excited to leave. His very brief email yesterday said it really hasn't totally sunk in, although it started to when he had his exit interview with the mission president on Sunday.

Right now (7:51 a.m. his time, 9:51 a.m. mine) he's probably still in Mexico. He and a couple other homebound missionaries most likely spent the night at the mission home, and got up this morning ready to hop in the mission van, CROSS THE BORDER back into the US for the first time in 2 years, and head for the San Diego airport. EJ's flight leaves at 12:30 p.m.-ish.

And I will post pictures as soon as I am able.


They're coming to America, TODAY! (I'm sure you can guess the song and performer) (5 mission points and a package of Pulparin Dots for the first person to comment with the correct answer) (Although Pulparin Dots in my opinion are more of a punishment) (BTW Pulparin Dots is a Mexican "candy")

Neil Diamond's "Today". I have great memories of listening to that in the Stubblefield's van.


Can't wait to see pictures and hear all about it.

Yeah, hurry up and post pictures already... Even if it hasnt happened yet. There is no way I would have been able to forget today, Mimi has been pestering me all weekend and this week regarding her annual. She coerced us to let her wear her birthday boots to school today (not to be confused with birthday suit, which of all our kids, she is most likely to be seen in).

I know you were excited because I heard it in your voice when we talked. Can't wait to see how Jimmy transitions back into the "real" world.
