Hello fam, I will write a little next week to you all, I will be visiting converts, so I will be traveling to my past areas, just some things to keep you updated, on Sunday I will be leaving Linares, going to the city, Monday going to my areas and visiting people, then Tuesday in the offices and eating with President and Wednesday I will be home! love you all. cant wait to see you!

Then on Friday we were headed down to see the Payson Temple for the Open House.  Wayne asked to get his phone and these had just popped in.  Tender mercy for sure.  He looks so great and I know they are going to miss him...and bad!

 Last Zone Meeting

I know they are going to miss him, too!

21 Years and 3 Months...Tradition!

We have a tradition now of our missionary taking a picture at exactly 21 Years and 3 Months.  Wayne's dad, Wayne, Bridger and now Stetson have one.  He looks so great and happy and it will be fun to add to the collage of missionaries who have served in our family.

 This a tradition.  21 years 3 months pic taken of all the Clayton Missionaries that have served
 Went pellet gun shooting
 I asked him to send me a picture of his shoes so I could use them for his Welcome Home announcement.  These are "perfect" for what I wanted.  Worn out in service!
 This is a random pic, this man is a member
Can't wait until he comes home and cooks for us!

Finally an Email, and getting closer to coming Home!

Finally, a real email from Stetson this week.  The last two weeks, he's been so busy we got only a few pictures.  Not complaining.  You all know I love the pictures.  Enjoy, only three more of these things. 

Hello my sweet family! It was good to see Dallins photos, so crazy that he is home and that tanner now has his call and going to russia! Russia couldnt get enough red head burninghams haha. Well thats cool, it made me feel bad to see zoies eye all like that. That is so weird, because I saw a beagle on Wednesday and it just looked so much like here. It honestly made me a little homesick to see that dog, and now worse that I saw those photos of zoie! but its all good. Also in this area there are so many expeditions!! just like we had, its crazy, I always look at the back to find the montepelier idaho emblem, but nope. one day, I cant wait to talk to you all on Sunday, I am thinking about 4 to 6 my time, I will get on and tell you all when I am ready. Just need to find a computer first. Everything is going well in my area, we didn't have any one come to church, we are working more with members, trying to find new people to teach and trying to get my comp excited, its pretty hard to stay focused and not to think about home, but I'm hanging in there. It's worse, because I have Elder Jacobsen in my zone, and we get talking about bountiful and utah and woods cross and we both get trunky, we actually did divisions, or exchanges the other day and we were riding on bikes and we saw a cow walk into a house, that was pretty funny haha. its not everyday you see that. Oh there is a sister missionary that is preparing to serve on a mission in mexico and she leaves May 26!! She has a going away party/devotional and I will be saying a few words at that this week, its pretty exciting here. I like it alot, its a great area with great members. This area is so much different from the rest of my areas, its just like montpelier Idaho, haha thats what I always think of here. but I'm loving it, I get to see my converts on the 25th!! So I will leave the 24th to the city, and all day Monday visiting people that I taught and learned to love!1 love you all. take care and have a good week!

Too Busy for an Email, but sent Pictures...Thank Heavens for Pictures!

This week as he emailed, he was trying to figure out school stuff so was unable to send an actual letter.  Oh, I hope we get one tomorrow.  But, the pictures speak volumes.  He is doing great, and oh so happy.  That is all I can ask for!

His cousin came home this week and as we read his last email, I told Stetson about how he said he missed carpet.  Here was his reply back to me:  hey mom! Elder Soto is home now, I extended my mission, I would have been home on April 16th with him, he served a 22 month mission,. but I wanted to go another change. My companion is Elder Mendoza, the house looks nice though,. I cant wait to lay on the carpet!!

Funny the little things we take for granted that these missionaries can't wait to feel and see again.
