He did end with these words and that's all we needed to hear this week:
I love you, Mom! Thanks for everything! Tell Dad I love him and miss our adventures. Tell the girls hi. Tell them I love them and hope there doing well!
This was his MTC companion, Elder Hill, who he really loved. They are not in the same area now, but they will see each other off and on through the mission. They may even end up serving in the same area. Quayd is 6'1", so when he said that Elder Hill was tall, he wasn't kidding!
I love that he's under this sign, but I seriously saw this and thought, "BE CAREFUL!"
I love this boy's smile! He told me that he's wearing his contacts on "picture days".
Monday is definitely my new favorite day of the week!
Life is good!
