Happy Mother's Day (observed)!

Misioneros "jóvenes" (young missionaries) get to call home on Christmas Day and Mothers' Day, and nowadays, that's often a "Skype" or other video conversation.  Because we were flying back to Bogotá from a mission health visit yesterday, and Mike, who is on his two-year mission in London, was busy shuttling missionaries to their new assignments, we arranged to make the call this morning (Monday).
Mike looked great!  A little older, but happy as ever, excited about the assignments he's working on with the Mission President, and too busy to think about the fact that he finishes in less than 90 days.
It was an interesting conversation, especially because all three of us are serving full-time missions at the moment.  I don't think there was a single mention of anything back home; instead, we talked about great things going on in both areas of the world, and compared a lot of notes about how things are done over there and here.
We hope you remembered your Mom, or your kids remembered you, or whatever.
Dave & Paula
