We found out about two weeks ago that Sister Crafty would be returning to the Philippines asap to finish the last 6th months of her mission. It was a whirlwind of Amazon searches for me, just trying to get her ready to go. She finally let everyone know right before she left Wichita.
If you need to tell me something personally while I'm gone, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Catherine Brady. She is a wonderful missionary and she will be able to help you.
I love you all! Kitakits!
I got half an hour to talk with her while she was at the airport. Mostly, we ran through the Tagalog flash cards I had purchased for my Girl Scout meeting. Her flight was running late.
Then it was time... and she was gone.
Then I got this:
Hey mom, I just wanted to let you know that I am alive :)

Today is my mom's 84th birthday. Even though she has been gone for many years, I still miss her. She was always busy taking care of her 8 children, but she still found time to play with us, even before she discovered video games.
blue skies over sailing ball.
Winter days are gone.
Haikus in the park
more fun than doing homework.
Let's stay here all day.
Words play on paper,
the meaning doesn't matter.
Haiku is the game.
And one more just for your birthday, Mom.
Work all day and night
cooking, cleaning, kids asleep
love unfeigned, my mom

We also had our friend Billy-Jack come to church for the first time in 15 years. We walked in and he had friends run up and hug him in the middle of the chapel. It was so awesome. I also had this cool experience, we were in and ordinary feeling member lesson, and someone mentioned the Sacred Grove. I immediately had the spirit bask over me for like 30 seconds and it was a very special gift, I never want to forget that feeling.

It wasn't quite what I was expecting, but after about 30 seconds, I smiled and jumped in with both feet. "Taco needs a date too. Then you will have a group." He invited a cutie from the Cupcake Club and we were off and running.

We had to be in Spanish Fork by 7:45 on a Saturday morning because Baby Doll was super excited to play volleyball. The sunrise was just a bonus.
They seemed almost surprised when they won the first match in two games. They took down their second opponent in 2 more.
The championship was within their grasp as they won the first game against the pink team. Unfortunately, the pink team pulled off a win in the second game by only 2 points.
