Britten's 1 year mark!

It's hard to believe it's been a whole year since we received that horrible phone call about Britten.  He was hit by a bus while serving his mission in Brazil.  The damage was mainly in his head/brain.  After a 4 week coma, lots of surgeries and basically having to relearn how to speak, he's the walking miracle in our Schenk family!  Nobody can deny that the the progress he's been able to make is 100% a miracle from our Heavenly Father.  The doctors were sure that IF Britten lived, he would be a vegetable.  Well they're certainly blown away by this young man!  He's as wonderful as ever and quite honestly, if you didn't know about his situation, you probably wouldn't know anything ever happened....besides a forgotten word here and there :)  
We had the opportunity to meet in Logan as friends and family and attend the temple together, then have a wonderful lunch/program at the church.  Don't spend too much time trying to find us in the picture, we had to leave the temple pretty quickly to go retrieve our kids from Leslie and Beckah who so graciously watched them for us!  It was a FABULOUS day and we're so glad we got to be there.
