Dear old Dad

So apparently Dad was in the hospital overnight having surgery on his nose. They had to make sure he was still breathing properly, and he is already noticing a difference in breathing and improved oxygen. I'm sure glad I have this blog so that someone would email me about this important piece of information which Dad himself failed to mention when we visited him this Sunday, as we do nearly every Sunday.

Anyhow, Aunt Helen has also written and her boys are doing just splendidly.

John's companion is from Idaho, and he is having a great time and working hard with the mission president. Also, he has been accepted to BYU for the fall, so he is deciding between that and Weber State.

James is still in the MTC with nine others who will be going to Slovenia/Croatia. They are divided into three groups of three, each learning a different language: Serbian, Slovene, and Croatian. Sounds like a great challenge and James is doing great.

Liz is a full blown nurse now, after the grand Bramall Family tradition. By the way, I am currently watching Brycen for Sara while she also goes to school to get what else but her Bachelors of Nursing at our own Dixie State College.

And Liz is also applying for graduate school to become a nurse practitioner. You go girl!

Uncle Gordon has been Bishop for 6-1/2 years, and he and Aunt Helen are currently adjusting to an empty nest. We hope all is well and that they can settle into this new stage comfortably. It's so amazing how quickly time flies! My in-laws might be in that stage in the next few years, as well.

So, I have been sadly neglecting this blog because no one ever comments on it. However, I do have some exciting news to relate, so I thought I would dust off the old bulletin and share.

John has been made an Assistant to the President of his mission. This will be such a learning and growing experience for him. I am very excited. My brother-in-law was an AP for a long time, and it was a great challenge. He really enjoyed it. He is back to normal work now, enjoying the last few weeks of his mission. I hope John enjoys it as well.

Jesse is training and serving as a District Leader, so he is doing well also. He is in Wenatchee (sp?), which produces approximately 1/3 of the world's apples, so think of him when you eat a nice juicy one.

And we are expecting a boy who will probably be named Henry at the end of April.

If you happen by, please comment that you were here, or better yet, email some news to me so I have something to post. My address is jbramall at yahoo dot com.

Love you all.
