A New Adventure!

WOW... WHAT A FUN WEEKEND!

First off, Jason and I have a new calling at church! Actually... a whole new ward/branch!

Two weeks ago we met with the Stake President and he has sent our little family on a 3 year mission (well... kinda like a mission), to the Deaf Branch in our Stake (the California, Torrance 4th Branch). What's Crazy is that Jason and I don't sign very well. I've always wanted to learn, because of a dear friend in high school, but have never had time to follow up with it. Jason last school semester, took a beginning class and loved it, lol I was totally jealous!

Yesterday was our first day and WE LOVED IT! My brain is filled with new signs and I feel that it's coming along pretty easy... Thankfully!

Our little family is off on a NEW adventure and we are so excited to learn and grow as a family. Bradley and Calvin also love the ward and are picking up signs fast. The people in the branch are so amazing! It has such a beautiful family feeling to it! lol They didn't waist anytime and gave us callings right away!

I'm now the new Young Women's President and Jason is the 2nd counselor in Young Mens. I'm soooo excited to be working with the youth!!! I'm so excited that I couldn't sleep last night and woke up at 4:53am. Oh and I guess I'm off to camp! It turns out the Young Women are going camping this week. I heart camping so it will be a blast.

So, if you sign... please remember to help me practice and sign away :)
I feel so blessed to be on this path with my family and I'm SOOO ready to work hard!

Oh that's awesome :) I only recall a few ASL-signs, but it'd still be fun to sign if we ever met (Norwegian SL is my mother language) :) Best of luck to you and your husband :)

Wow! Congrats on your new calling. So does that mean your not house hunting anymore? I was wondering if you ever found a house?? I guess we won't be so close after all. Best of Luck to your family!
