Moving on...

Katie has been busy working for her dad for the past several months and attending the singles ward, though still a ward missionary with her home ward. She attends Institute and hangs out with family as they have been in and out lately. But that will soon end as she has a new job in Utah at the Park City Mountain Ski Resort working in the kids center. She is excited at the possibilities, yet anxious about the reality of it all. We all think it is a great move for her and celebrate the opportunity with her. So if any one has a contact with a room/apartment for rent in the Park City area, please let us know. Housing is extremely tight and expensive up there.
Hurrah for Katie!

The latest -

Katie has been home a month today and I thought you might be interested in her progress toward civilian life. She still misses her mission and this morning as she got in the car to go to church she paused to make sure she had her name tag on and then remembered ... Dang those name tag memories, they are hard to forget! Anyway, she is busy looking for a job, has ordered a cell phone (told you it would take a little while) and is looking at cars. She is attending Institute and the Gospel Essentials class with the investigators and new converts. She really does love that! She is scheduled to volunteer at MARE, the equestrian therapy center, starting next month. So as you can see she is moving along. Still dreams of her mission ... don't we all?!

Update ...

Sister Musick, now Katie, is slowly adusting to "civilian life." She gave a great talk on the Book of Moromon on the Sunday after she returned. She has been called to be a Ward Missionary with another girl in the ward who is waiting for her mission call. She is learning to sleep in and has gone to a Young Adult activity as well as an Institute class - when a friend (a returned sister missionary) came by and "abducted" her! She is loving her nephews, getting to know little Parker who was born while she was gone. She has been a great help to her mom as she finishes library inventory at school. But she still likes to have a "companion" with her in large groups and is avoiding driving and is not interested in a phone...yet! Give her time :)

Homecomings are sweet!

Sister Musick returns

Dear Family and Friends -
Some of you may be aware that Sister Katie Musick has been struggling with her health for the last few months while on her mission. She has done a good job of sheilding us from her problems. However, her doctors recommended that it was time for her to come home to recuperate. Both she and her mission president were not happy about the suggestion, but realized it was better in the long run for Katie. She will be returning on Thursday, the 20th at 12:12 at Meadows Field. If you would like to join us in welcoming her home, feel free. I think it would help her to know she has a family and friends here to support her recovery.

It is anticipated that she will speak the following Sunday in the Highland Manor Ward, which starts at 9:00am.
Thanks so much - The Musicks

Well, Mom to tell you the truth I was nervous to make the call home, too. I did not want to call home, but I remembered that Sam did not want to call home either. So I deceided I was ok to call home. It has not made me homesick at all. It was just good to hear yours and dad’s voices.

So today we went to the temple and I got to play B-ball, it was a lot of fun.
So tonight we are having a luau - we are dancing. I am not happy about that. But I am taking one for the team. We are going to have food and I will be talking and dancing. I will be happy when this is all over.

Mom and Dad, I love you for all that you do for me. I am grateful to have great parents that love me, and want me to be happy. I know what you are doing back home is so important - being a Bishop and his wife is a great calling to have. Yes, at times it is hard. “No one said it would be easy, only that it would be worth it.” I am grateful that we can be a family forever. Mom and Dad, I always put your names in the temple.

I LOVE YOU ALL VERY MUCH! It was great to talk to you all.
Love, Sister Musick
Hurrah for Israel!
