This is Zac Companion he has been training him and will be with him until his Mission is finished
This is a couple that Zac just baptised and he said they were so ready and wanting to become members of the Church, I thought it was cute how he wore a "white" hat for before and after!
These are some Elders that are in Zac's Zone, grilling --something-- but I am sure it's good what ever it is....They are celebrating Mexican Independence Day!
Only Zac would do a picture like this, Loves, Loves his meat!!!!!! he didn't say what kind it was and I didn't ask...
Hum---don't really know if this is Legal for Missionaries, but he wanted to show me some cool looking Fireworks..I'm sure they are someone else's ...... probably belong to a family that they were with....

So the story goes... Boyd and I and the kids headed up to the Rim this weekend to do some fishing at Bear Mountain, It started off to be a fun weekend we had Willie with us and once we got to Payson his friend Josh was there to pick him up so Willie could help him with his Elk hunt, we ate dinner spent the night in the "Bates Motel" okay not really but cheap hotel because this was going to be a fun cheap get away.. woke up Saturday morning went to the friendly Walmart to get some treats and of course some WORMS mind you for our fun day at the lake.. meanwhile my brother Robert and his family and my Brother in-law Ron and his family were all camping at Bear Mountain so the plan was to go by and visit them and then go do some family fun fishing.. we made it to the camp and enjoyed being with everyone and then it was time to go fishing..Sooooo Boyd looked all over in the back of the truck for the WORMS in fact took everything out, went through all the bags NO Worms looked to see if Oscar had put them inside the truck no Worms.. so I looked on my receipt to see if they even charged us for the Worms and yes there was the charge but no WORMS.. ugh.. I was so mad and all I could picture in my mind was this man at Walmart with this happy cheerie smile on his face who did not give us the bag with the WORMS in it.....needless to say Hallie and Oscar were bummed, but then something happen that was so exciting for all to see, we hear the quad coming and see that there is something on the front of it, and here came Jaquelyn, Preston, Jay and Ron all on one quad with the biggest smiles ever... SO Jaquelyn Shot her FIRST Bull ELK and I might say it was a nice one, she was grinning ear to ear with joy it was so fun for all the little cousin to see and for us too, so we got some good pictures of her.. if any of you know Jaquelyn she is the expert at Bass Pro and can help any one to learn how to tie fly's for fishing, they had a big article on her in the news paper a month ago, she is amazing young women with lots of ambition we are so proud of her, did I mention she shot it with her BOW and she is only 19. What ago Jaquelyn... And then here is my poor sister in-law Laura she is a trooper, broke her foot a couple of weeks ago in Payson on a Quad ride with her family but still continues to be there to support her family, all and all we had a great time and look forward to get some more worms and do some fishing... And maybe go back to Walmart and maybe I should give that happy gentelmen a Worm or too....

I'm am feeling alittle sad that these Missionary Moments will be coming to an end soon, and Elder Shill will be home.. I have enjoyed these last two years it's been so fun to read his letters and watch him grow and how it has blessed our family, I will have a pretty big gap before I will be sending the next Shill Missionary out and I can honestly say that I will be looking forward to that day.. Zac has loves his Mission and has expressed how much he is going to miss the people of Mexico and the things that he has seen and the people that he has talked too. These are some of the pictures that he sent this week.. Okay the first one is a sweet little girl of a family that they were teaching and she would call Zac Uncle Shill, so cute.. second picture well that's alittle gross, this was his sink that was backed up in his new appt that he just moved into to, okay alittle gross i would say, and I absolutely love this picture i just think it sums up the whole emotional feelings that you have while your son is gone for two years..
Now for the love of my life! Don't get me wrong I love all my children but there is something about this kid that keeps are spirits lifted and keeps us shaking our heads! So Oscar has had some of the funniest ideas lately, On Sunday Willie and Camie brought there dog over and Oscar decided that Friz needs to have a friend so he proceeded to make himself into a dog and he was marked from head to toe, it was amazing and I am sorry I do not have a picture.. and I will have to leave out Willie's comment...So on Monday he comes home from school and gets the paper and markers and decided he is going to be a rabbit cause rabbit's like carrots and he loves carrots so this is his great imagination that i want to share with you all, Now for that water picture and again my clever little Oscar, I was sitting on the couch and Oscar comes in with TWO glasses of water I said "Oscar is there a reason that you need to bring in two glasses of water into the family room??? "Oscar" Mom I have to bring in TWO incase the other one RUNS OUT!! smart boy!!!!!!! I am so gald for this blogging things cause this is way for me to remember and express things for me and my family and someday to make into a journal for me, otherwise I don't think i would take the time to write each night about my events! I have a sister that has keeped a Journal forever I think since her Junior year when she sent her missionary off and has keep one ever since, I thought what a legacy she will have for her children to look back on and read.. feeling alittle guilty that i haven't done that myself, but maybe i can look back and think of things to write. about...
