Post-Panama Post--Family Fun in Florida

On January 10th we bade farewell to friends and associates in Panama and returned to our home in Florida with the mixed feelings typical of virtually all returning missionaries. We'll miss the people and the missionary work in Panama. We look forward to another missionary experience in another year or so. But in the meantime we are thoroughly enjoying being home. Kathi and Jose had cleaned up our house nicely. Jose picked us up at the airport and dropped us off at the local Toyota dealership to pick up the car we had ordered with Kathi's and Debbi's help. We have been released by the stake president, have reported to the high council, have been called to teach the temple preparation class in the ward, and will speak next Sunday in sacrament meeting. We have opened our new little tent trailer, have hooked up a trailer hitch to the car, had the car wired to connect to the trailer, and look forward to some great camping and visiting over the next year. We've enjoyed visiting with Kathi's, Debbi's, and Regina's families, meeting Brynn Boix and Cyrus Adib for the first time, and we look forward to visiting with the rest of the family in the near future. In the meantime, here are some preliminary photos to prove we're actually home:
