My Best Two Years… er, 18 months!

Hey Everyone! I’m heading to the Provo Missionary Training Center this Wednesday and wanted to share my mission blog with you. My parents and siblings will update this with stories and pictures until they get bored, overwhelmed, and /or forget about me, whichever comes first.

Who has seen the movie The Best Two Years? I imagine myself pedaling by tulip fields, just like the missionaries in the movie. My tagline comes from the opening credits.

Mama makes the best fried chicken.
Wrangler makes the best blue jeans.
Everybody knows Oklahoma makes the very best football teams.
I believe that the Mormons make the best pioneers.
So I’m going to the land of the tulips, where I’m gonna make the best two years.

Chorus:

The best two years, the best two years.
Yes, I’ll be testifying in my very best suit from Sears.
The best two years, the best two years.
I’m going to the land of the tulips, where I’m gonna make the best two years.

First I’m gonna warn the little dutch boy, who stuck his finger in the middle of a dike
That a flood of love is comin’ and it’s riding on a 10 speed bike.
Wheels spin faster than a windmill, cause I’m always in the highest gear.
All about the lands of the tulips, I’ll be turning out my best two years.
