yesterday was the last day that i will see my brother blake for two years. he will be serving an lds mission in lima, peru. grant and i drove up to orem for an extremely short trip. way too short. i didn't get to see everyone that i wanted to and i definitely didn't get to spend as much time with blake as i wanted to. sometimes i really wish i could turn all of my four younger brothers into girls. that way i wouldn't have to send one off on a mission every time i turn around. blake is such a cutie. i just love love love him. he is so mature and smart and he just makes me so proud. his testimony is so beautiful. i love being around him. he is always so collected and composed. i love to hear his opinions and sometimes when listening to him... i can't believe that he is 19 years old. i will miss him so much. i hope that the next two years go by fast. i know he will do fabulous with people. he is such a little sweetie.
