Jared is on his way to Utah!!! This morning he finished packing up all his things. (We're just glad everything fit! We had to switch pieces of luggage last night when we found out one of the bags was slightly oversize and they charge $180 for that!!!!!) Once he finished getting ready to go, he woke Maddie up to say goodbye. She gave him a quick hug and then darted into HIS bed to sleep! Funny girl! After family prayers, Dad said a final goodbye, gave him a hug and sent him on his way with me. Carl headed back to sleep for awhile. It WAS only 3:30 a.m.!!
I took Jared to the airport and got him checked in. They insisted that they did not hand out any pass to moms to go see their boys who are leaving for 2 years. We checked with another Delta agent who said this happens ALL the time. Hmmmm....weird! Jared ran into another missionary from Samoa who was heading to the MTC too. This put Jared more at ease. There were some tears from me and hugs from him. Then he headed out and looked thrilled to be on his way! Later today I'll post pictures.
