Starts and Ends With Rain

That is exactly how today played out. Our household was a mad house at 6 this morning.. getting up for the temple trip and saying bye to Chloe before she headed off to college. And we all cried like a bunch of babies. Mom and Chloe left shortly after we did.

After all these years you would think that I would be more than happy for the day my Clo Bo left home. Exactly the opposite. She has taught me more than I ever thought possible. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done.. saying good bye to my sissy.

However, I did get to talk to them while they were traveling today. Our ward had an interesting opportunity today. One you would NOT expect at the temple.

Mhmm. And no.. I'm not joking. And yes.. I have gotten that reaction every time I've told someone. David Archuleta was in Omaha, Nebraska for a concert and attended the Winter Quarters Temple while there. Just so happens that he attended the same baptismal session as our ward. It was funny to see the different reactions of our youth when we first walked into the chapel. He sat directly behind a couple friends and me. Boy, was Brother Anderson lucky that he was able to confirm him. I can't tell you how many girls would just be happy to TOUCH him! But it was cool to talk to him for a little bit and then he was on his way.

It's raining.. pouring actually.. and it's Saturday night. Only a few more days until school. I'll take my chances.. :)

Love, Hunter Bug


  1. It is hard to say goodbye even if it is just for short periods of time! I wish Chloe the best at school! I'm having a hard time with just sending Darcy to Kindergarten tommorrow! I can't imagine College!

    That is AWESOME about your Temple Trip!

  2. I can't believe it! The first time I leave you all behind and I get left out of all the action! Guess we'll know he's a good kid now and one of you can marry him!
    We miss you guys. I hope you have the best 1st day of school ever.
    Love you.

  3. Hahaha, the beehives were obsessed. I felt so bad for him. My mom told him "Welcome to Nebraska" when she sat next to him on the bench outside the glass wall. I laughed, and laughed, and laughed. I think he was just shy, and of course our ward had to be the ones who starred him down.

    Chloe will be great! Just think, she'll be with lots of hot Mormon boys. I'm more of jealous then anything else ;)

    Love you!

  4. That is sooooooo crazy about David Achuletta!! I would have died and I can't possibly marry him. Wow. So fun.
