Richard's mission call!

Richard got his mission call! It arrived in the mail the day before his birthday, so we had a big birthday breakfast to find out where and when he's going.



Michigan-Detroit Mission! He enters the Missionary Training Center on September 1st and will spend the next 2 years living and serving in the Detroit area. We can't believe it's here already! Amazing how quickly time passes. When I first met the Aufdermauers, Richard was only 11. Now he's 19 and about to head out on his own. We're proud of you, Richard!

And we celebrated his birthday that night with a little dinner and cheesecake. Yummm. Happy Birthday and Happy Mission Call, Richard!

Our little Mini is all grown up. Really it makes me a little weepy. I couldn't be more proud of you Richard, you're going to be an awesome missionary (and an awesome 19 year old too). Love you!

Congrats to Richard! We used to live in Ann Arbor, MI. He will have a blast and Sam will be jealous. Good luck to him.
