Matty

Well there have been a lot of milestones around here lately.
This past weekend was the one year mark for my favorite
 brother Matt on his mission.

Matt is serving in the Santiago North, Chile Mission and 
I am so proud of him!
I can't believe it has been a year already.

Matt and I are really close and I love being around him, I miss him soo much!
I was so worried about him when he left, that he would be safe and happy and not homesick
and get along with his companions, and Matt has showed no fear from day one.
He is such a strong person who everyone loves to be around,
No more worrying, he is doing awesome!

Matt is one of the funniest people I know, he seriously can make our family laugh at all times. 
His emails are one of the highlights of my week because he is still so himself, still makes me laugh so hard but I can see him growing and being an amazing missionary each week as well.

He is officially on the downward, and the countdown begins. 
I have so much respect for him and every week when he writes home I am amazed at the 
task that missionaries do.  They are changing people's live for generations to come and preparing 
to be the best versions of themselves-better husbands and fathers and people.
Because my brother chose to serve a mission, People's lives in Chile will be changed forever-how cool is that!?
I was a little emotional dropping him off at the MTC

I love you and am so proud of you Matty!
Can't wait to seeeeee yyyyoooouuuu!!
Go burn a shirt! haha

You are adorable! I was a little emotional when I dropped Ben off, so no judgement here! I'm so glad he's doing good. We knew he would!
