On Friday night, I was lucky enough to meet a special missionary.  Elder Crook is "special" because he is the son of one of blogging friends.  Here's the story:

I LOVE reading blogs.  But I rarely reply to posts... unless I know the person personally.  About a year ago I found a blog about music and religion.  I instantly began following this amazing blogger.  She made me smile and I related to all her posts.  When she sent out a plea for guest posts a few months later, I surprised myself by volunteering.  She became a friend.  The more I learned about this talented woman, the more I liked her and felt honored calling her a friend.  Imagine my astonishment, (and hers) when her son was called a mission  to Louisville, Kentucky.  And I was even more excited when I learned that he was serving in my friends, the Schmids, branch.  I got myself invited over for dinner so I could meet him.  I took tons of pictures for Lesa....  He is a great kid!  I would adopt him in a heart beat.  He loves music and theater!  Which is right up my alley!  I really enjoyed getting to know him.

Here are some of the pictures I took:
