Goodbye Thomas

First off I just have to talk a little bit about our little guy. . .
I can't believe how much Jacoby has changed in the last month, he keeps me very busy now. I took some pictures of Jacoby crawling the other day so that I could do this layout. When I was trying to get these pictures I would go across the room from him and it was so hard to get some good pictures because he just came right at me for the camera...it made me laugh.

My brother, Thomas, left on his mission last Tuesday. He's a great kid and will do such a good job serving in Brazil.
Last Monday we went to lunch with Thomas.
My little family with Tom


Thomas and his sisters

The whole fam
This has been one of the hardest things I have ever done. I think we will all feel a lot better when we get a letter tomorrow or Wednesday. I'm so proud of Thomas, he's such a great example to me, I love him so much.

I love your page. So cute. And it is hard to see a loved one leave on a mission. He will be the best missionary and has such a great family. It will go fast cause you will be watching Jacoby grow up, and they grow so fast. Love you Longs!!!!!

I love your new page on Jacoby! He's so cute! I can't believe Thomas is already old enough to go on a mission :) He'll be a great missionary and I hope you get to hear from him soon!
