missionaries.

we have two sets of missionaries in our ward. we had them both over for dinner last night (pizza and store-bought brownies and ice cream - i'm no fool). so there we were, dorky me and TH entertaining four 19-21 year old boys.

i forgot how funny 19 and 20 year old boys are. they are such dorks and i love it. TH and i had the best time joking around with them and hearing their crazy stories. i love our church and love that these boys are brave enough to take 2 years of their life to learn and share about Christ and serve others. it's super inspiring and makes me feel hopeful for positive change in the world. any time people put someone else ahead of their own needs, i feel like they should get a standing ovation.

We had them over last week! We ordered pizza and had rootbeer floats. They kept cracking up at everything we said (trust me, we were not being that funny). It was a great self esteem boost.
