Demands of Work vs. Missionary smiles...

Last Thursday and Friday my Strong Silent Mysterious Man had to go to Nevada for work.  It's his least favorite thing to do, leaving his family, leaving home (he is really a home body), and it always means something went wrong that he has to go fix.  Stressful being on the customers job site trying to trouble shoot problems and having to be the bearer of bad news on how much it will cost them to fix it.   It's really not his favorite thing to do at all!

But he survived it once more and made it home in time to get mugged by our dogs... they both wanted to be as close to him as possible.  They really miss any of us when we leave, and are never afraid to show you just how much!
 Luckily he made it home in time for dinner with the missionaries.
We really love the missionaries, and have been trying to find "the list" to feed them, or any excuse to have them come to our home, as much as possible these days.  Don't you just love their smiles!!  They are doing really good right now.  We see them go through some of their up's and down's sometimes, just a little.  But this week, two thumbs up!  They are working hard and enduring the trials that come their way.

An unfortunate update... Jim had to go back to Nevada on Monday, they are so busy at work, and somehow he picked the short straw again or something...  but the good news is that he made it back home late in the evening and didn't have to stay overnight.  It was a really really long day of work, but we were so happy to have him back home with us.  It makes me feel super fortunate that it is not a regular part of his job (well other than twice this past week), and I appreciate families that have to deal with that in their lives.  It's not for the squeamish.
