It was great to hear Elder Yancey speak on Sunday. It's amazing to me how these Elders leave as such young boys and come home as men. They grow so much in so many different ways. The only problem is I've looked at this picture of the both of them serving together for so long (it sits on the table in the living room) that I almost fully expected to see Elder Lance standing somewhere close by through the whole meeting! LOL Then when Elder Yancey and his family walked in to Sunday School a little late, it totally threw me off my lesson for a second. And then they sat right in the front row. Talk about a distraction! But part of my lesson was on the "stakes" we need to help support us so we continue to grow straight and strong in the gospel. The four stakes I talked about were righteous parents, faith in God, covenants, and....righteous friends. I could not look out over that group of people without seeing Elder Yancey BEAMING in the front row and not think about how grateful I am that Lance had friends like that to help support him a long the way. Not only that, but to be able to serve right along with him in the same mission! What a blessing!
Elder Yancey, we want you to know that we think YOU'RE the stud!!! Thanks for being that friend a friend would want to have. And WELCOME HOME!!!!!!

Speaking of action....what a week we had last week! Nicki ended up placing 5th in region for javelin. And Viewmont ended up taking 4th in state. Way to go girls! Hunter's rugby team ended up taking 2nd in state. What a championship game that was!! I've never seen these guys play that hard and that aggressive. They were tied at the end of the game 20 - 20 sending it into a 10 minute overtime. At the end of the ten minutes neither team had scored. So it went into a kicking round. They selected 5 players from each team. Each player was allowed one free kick. Highland made 4 out of 5 kicks to D.C's 2 out of 5 kicks making the final score Highland 24 to D.C's 22. They put up a good fight though and Hunter had a great season. He said the best thing about NEXT season is that Lance will be home to see him take 1st in state! The "Nerm" is still tied for 1st place in baseball. Just a few more weeks till the playoffs. We hope his little team can keep it up. Some games they prove to be the luckiest little little league team we know - squeaking by with nearly impossible wins. Keep it up Rays!
That's about it for our update. We did have a fan-tab-ulous phone call with our missionary on Mother's Day! It was great to be able to talk to him. He's doing awesome and sends his love. 41 more weeks to go :)
