Burnham Missionaries

I am proud to say that I now have 2 siblings serving a mission. Sister Brianne Burnham is finishing up her last 4 months in the Detroit Michigan Mission. Currently in Chelsea, Mi.

Elder Sean Burnham just left the MTC and entered the mission field in the Raleigh, North Carolina Mission. He is currently serving in the Cary, NC area.

These two missionaries are so loved and adored by, their nieces and nephew. We love getting their letters and hearing all about their teaching and spiritual experiences. Keep up the good work you two!!!

Update on Brookie

Brooklyn is going to be turning 8 in 4 months!!! I can't believe my little baby Brookie is that old. Brooklyn is getting so tall and is only 12 inches away from passing me up! Only in 2nd grade but has the attitude of a 13 year old, we are all in trouble. She is often too smart for her age in many ways.

Brooklyn is excelling in math and reading. Her teacher is very impressed at how well she is doing and how easy it comes for her. I hope this trend continues!

Brooklyn is very sociable and is a little butterfly in class, which from my experience can be a bad thing sometimes. I love that she has many friends and is NOT shy at all!

As Brooklyn continues her ballet training she is working extra hard this year as I have moved her up a level. She loves to dance and wants to try out for the Nutcracker next year.

I am sad that Brooklyn is growing up but I am so excited for this new stage of life. She understands our jokes and she can come up with some pretty funny ones herself. Her personality is really starting to bloom.
