Sister Roberts

My little sister Danielle is officially a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She will serve for 18 months in Houston, Texas and she will be amazing.

I must say that although James and I are so excited and proud of her, we really, really miss her. We'll miss our bike rides, hikes and games of Canasta, but most of all we'll just miss her hilarious stories and beautiful spirit.

This experience will surely shape her in ways that no other experience could. She will meet some of the best friends she will ever have, those forever kind of friends that she wouldn't meet had she not chosen to serve. She will spread the gospel and testify of Christ. She will change lives.

I love you baby sister! I couldn't be more proud.

It seems like we've been saying a lot of goodbyes lately. Not fun.

Our good friends and former neighbors, Kevin & Rachael have moved on to a sweet job in Southern California. We're so happy for them and this new opportunity that they have, but we'll miss them!

My youngest sister, Danielle left on July 20th for the missionary training center before she goes to serve her mission for our church in Houston, Texas. More on that to come.

Our goodbye last week was to our friends Brad, Emily and their little girl Chloe. We are so used to seeing them a few times a week that our lives seem a little boring without them here.

They are our adventurous friends and have moved to India to do some research with a BYU group for at least 6 months. I'm so excited for them and the incredible experiences they will no doubt have, but I miss them already :'(

This face just melts me!

On our way home from saying goodbye we saw this amazing sunset with the flag. I thought it was a great goodbye to them. Brad, Emily & Chloe, America will not be the same without you!
