Where In The World Will Austin Go?

We are on pins and needles - high anticipation mode as we wait for Austin's mission call to arrive sometime this week! Austin is saying it will arrive on Wednesday. The Cannon Center at BYU actually calls you to let you know your mission call has arrived in the mail. Can't get better service than that.

I've been taking an 'unofficial' email poll. I tallied up the results and they look something like this:
Here they are:
((2) Africa
(2) Australia
(2) Greece
(2) Mexico
(4) Japan
(4) Argentina
(6) S. America (not incl. Argentina - Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Uraguay, Peru, S. America in general)

Other guesses:
CA; Ohio
Louisville-KY or C. America
N or NEast US
Albania
Haiti
Europe
Madrid Spain
Italy
Austin, TX; Nova Scotia; Finland;
Canada, Germany or Russia




One of my favorite books is "Oh the Places You'll Go!" by Dr. Seuss. At the end of the book it says:
"So . . . be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'Shea, you're off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So . . . get on your way!"

Austin, we know where ever you go in life - today or tomorrow you will go places! Oh, the places you'll go! You are awesome. We are blessed to be your parents and family.

So excited! I didn't put in a guess...
maybe he'll come to Michigan! I only say that because he could potentially live next door to us and that would be sweet (we would make sure not to be a distraction).
