Brad was called as the bishop of our ward. He was sustained on Sunday, March 20, 2011. His father (Gordon), Kathi, Brent, Becky, Brent (yes, we have 2 Brents), Melodie, Holden, Bryce and Bailey all came to support him. It was nice to have so much family here. I wish I would have taken pictures, I don't know why I forgot to! I also need to take a picture of him with his counselors! Just as a funny side note, a friend from the ward came up to Brad and I on Sunday and told us that they were pretty sure Brad would be the new bishop so they drove by our house at 10:30 on Saturday night to see if there were any cars with out of stake plates, haha... guess they saw all the cars and knew! Funny!
Brent and Becky stayed on Monday to play! We drove down to Newport Beach and then down to Laguna. We had fish and chips and then a really yummy dessert! Thanks, Brent!
Then Becky and I went and waded in the water!
And, then Becky and I went and got us each a new toe ring! It was a really fun day!
The best news I have gotten in a long time came YESTERDAY!!! Dallin's visa status went from "received" to "processing"!!!! THAT is really great news!!! That means that he will probably be on his way to Belo Horizonte Brasil in less than 2 weeks!!! I am super excited for him! I sure wish there was some way I could let him know! I did email him but he wont be able to read it until next Monday!
I got a couple of new pics of Dallin. This one is of him and his companion on St. Patrick's day, hence the green ties!
And here they are on their bikes! Last I heard they had a car, so don't ask me! Maybe they get the car when there is snow and ride bikes when spring comes? I don't know... I will ask him in his next email!
