So I turned 30 today. I know, I know... how does it feel to be 30? Well, just like it did to be 29, 28, 27, 26, 25, and so on down the line since being home from my mission. Actually, I was thinking about the big milestones in my life. At 16 I got a driver's license. At 18 I graduated from high school and went off to college across the country. At 19 I went on a mission for 2 years. At 21 I came home from that mission, and was legally allowed to drink (although that didn't happen). At 24 I was kicked off of my parents insurance and I had to find my own. At 26 I got my first real, post-college, job... which I am still working at. At 28 I got married. And now I am 30 and... yep.
Then, here we are entering the final mud pit. Notice that up to this point only our bottom halves a really even muddy. Most of the other pits were stand up pits you just trudged through. This one that had ropes you HAD to go under.
