on this very day, one year ago, my best friend/big brother davis left on his mission to romania. our move to brasil really strengthened our relationship and we became really close. we would have so much fun!
when we moved to brasil, he learned portuguese in what literally seemed like two months. and on his mission, he's had to learn russian and romanian. he is a huge example to me in this way, and in so many more ways.
some fun things we would to together:
-laugh for hours
-listen to music all day & translate songs into portuguese while we sang them.
-mix portuguese and english when we talked
-when all the rest of the family would go and eat at subway, we'd walk down to the açaí shop. after all, it was and still is our favorite treat. :)
-bring a weeks worth amount of food along with us in the car when we had to run errands for my dad, even if it only took 15 minutes.
-when our parents would go to the temple, me, him, and mal would go to the gas station right down the road, buy a bunch of junk food and have a party.
the list is endless, but as you can see, we had a blast every single day. it was really hard at first and kind of seemed boring when he left, but i know the best thing he could be doing right now is serving a mission. like i said, he is a huge example to me and i miss him like crazy. but the good news is, he's over the hump! only one more year! :)
te amo, elder jones!
