We dropped Justin off at the MTC on Wednesday. Tear. I actually didn't cry. I was warned by Tyler to keep it together so I didn't make it any harder for him. The whole "dropping off at the curb" thing wasn't as bad as I expected. Me, my mom, and my dad ALL held it together, and so did Justin. (My mom may have shed some tears once we got back in the car and drove off. Butt hen I made her do a little shopping! I think it helped...at least temporarily) Anyways, as we dropped him off, it actually felt really good, we were all happy...it just felt right.
But I'll tell ya, that place was a ZOO; missionaries getting dropped off left and right, cars bumper to bumper, families everywhere. It might have been what distracted us and kept us all from balling and making a scene. We did see a few of those.
Before our goodbyes, we took the missionary to one of the best places to eat in Provo....J-Dawgs. It was a first-time experience for my parents as well. We finished the dawgs off with some frozen yogurt...Justin loves the stuff. I'm afraid he might have gone into the MTC smelling of polish dog & sauerkraut! Nice!
Oh, I'm gonna miss this kid. I made sure to take pics of him this time...it's gonna be a while 'til we see his cute freckly face!
See ya in two years buddy....we'll be thinking of you, praying for you, and missing you!!
