With All My Love

Dear Elder Schenewark, family and friends,

Dad and Porter left for Marietta, Georgia early this morning. He has a national coaching conference he's attending until Wednesday. Then he'll head towards New York for Evan's graduation from West Point. Saturday night he'll have made his way to your grandparents in Boston. It's a whirlwind kind of a trip. I miss your father when he is gone. Marriage is not a human invention but is a divine creation, part of an eternal plan. How grateful I am that he's mine. I love to laugh with him at the end of the day and anytime in between.

Porter will be going through the Boston temple on Memorial Day, since the temple is open on Monday's when it's a holiday. Doctrine and Covenants 109:21 says that the blessings received in the temple are "poured out upon those who shall reverence thee in thy house." I wish this for Porter as he goes for the first time

They'll leave Wednesday to head back to Texas. In the meantime, the rest of us will be holding down the fort in Texas.

This is the last week of school for some your siblings. We'll know tomorrow if some are excused from the last week because of their test scores. They're so ready to be done with school except for your sister. She would go everyday through the summer as she does love her girl friends. Seminary is over, so I won't have to worry about that this week while I'm all alone.

Your friend Edmar found me on Facebook and tagged me in a few photos. He explained that members went with the missionaries in search of less actives (rescue) and in a period of one and a half hours you and your group were blessed with 44 references.

That's wonderful. Congratulations on this successful endeavor!

This is the time of the year when a lot of activities begin to wind down. Miller is finished with Cub Scouts for the summer, and has completed his first year Webelos.

Sawyer was inducted into the National Junior Honor Society.

Baseball tournaments this week finish regular season baseball for Miller and Sawyer.

Dad finished his winter semester, and begins his summer sessions soon.

And you'll be finished shortly as well. We spent all week finishing Porter's paperwork for his VISA application. It's such a complicated process obtaining notary signatures, fingerprints,...hopefully he'll get his religious training certified tomorrow, and we'll be all set. Back-to-back missionary sons this time around...and I love it.

I love you. Finish strong, healthy, and safe.

A week from today we get to see Porter and Dad! Life is so good. After that we are so looking forward to July 28th and the big return!
