Long string of goodbyes: The best family ever

1:05 PM

I have an amazing family, they really are the best. But here at school, I've had a pretty amazing substitute family. FHE seven, or The Jaredites as some like to call us, is seriously the best. Every single member of our family is awesome and I am so sad that I have to say goodbye to them. Our last family night is tonight, and I really don't even want to think about it. We've had some awesome times together, and I am going to miss every single one of the people that have become brothers and sisters, or mom and dad, to me.

So family, here's to ugly sweaters, the boys always being late, crazy games of spoons, amazing testimony meetings, hide and seek on campus, hanging out together every day, way too many Oreos, the Jesus mosaic, our hilarious Valentine's excursion, fighting over Skittles, In the Arms of the Angels, dead puppies, interpretive dancing, being the Shiz, priesthood blessings, not being able to make it through a song or prayer without laughing, singing the Primary songs for Marissa, our AWESOME funeral, nuggeting someone every single FHE, never telling a lie, endless YouTube videos, even more Oreos (yes I already said Oreos. We ate a lot of Oreos.), amazing temple trips on Thursday nights, the lady that told us we were not dressed appropriately, and yet again, Oreos.

Here's to Ian, one funny guy and an amazing dad. Ian always knows how to make the girls feel special and says the craziest things that keeps our family laughing. I'm going to miss him and I wish him all the best in California on his mission!

Here's to Jack, one classy guy who loves to crack jokes and keeps our family on their toes. Jack is one of my very best guy friends  here at school and I'm going to miss him like crazy. Jack knows how to get the party started and is such a good friend to everyone. Love you Jack! Good luck in Argentina!

Here's to Kurtis, one of the funniest people I know. Kurtis is crazy and unique and never afraid to be himself. He's genuine and real and when Kurtis says something nice to you, he means it. Kurtis is one of those people that you love having as a friend simply because you have no idea what he's going to do next. I love you Turtis! (Don't hate me:)) and good luck in Brazil!

Here's to Lincoln who is so confusing, but funny and sweet at the same time. Lincoln and I could have deep talks about anything, and then the next minute he would be making fun of me or cracking jokes. Lincoln is going to do awesome things with his life simply because he goes for what he wants. Which is something I really admire about him. Love you Lincoln! And good luck freezing in Russia!

Here's to Cole who has become one of my closest friends. Cole is quiet at first, but once you get to know him he's cracking jokes or voicing his opinion about everything. He's so smart and so caring of others, and honestly doesn't really care what people think about him. He's always himself and that's more than enough. He's one awesome guy and I'm going to miss him! I love you Cole and have fun in Brazil with Kurtis:)

Here's to Dylan. Basically I don't know where I would be without this kid. Dyl is probably my best guy friend here at school, and he is like a big brother to me. He's so sweet and fun, and is always looking out for me. He brings me food and notes just because, and treats me so much than I deserve. He's such a fun loving guy who is mature and ready for the next adventure in life. He's one of the most spiritual people I know and those great folks in Guatemala aren't going to know what hit them! Dylan Sawyer is going to do great things, mark my words. I love you Dyl and I am so lucky to call you my best friend.

Here's to Marissa who was absent a majority of the time (boyfriend or something...) but when she did come to FHE she made it so much fun! Marissa is sweet, smart, and ambitious. That girl is going places. She's confident and absolutely beautiful and I have loved having her as my FHE sister. I love you girl and I'm going to miss you!

Here's to Cadedra who was always ready with a witty remark or a funny thought. She's fun and sweet and really cares about people. Cadedra has one of the biggest hearts of anybody I know and is very sure of herself, which is something I love about her. I love you hon and I better see you next year!

I'm not going to write huge long things about my actual roomies yet, even though they're in our FHE family. Don't you worry, it's coming:)

Sorry this was crazy long, but you probably just skimmed it anyway;) I just had to document these important people so that I would always remember. Anywho...

I'm done with finals. Happy Monday everyone!
