On August 27, 2008 Spencer went into the MTC, to stay for a couple of weeks and then went to the Cleveland Ohio Mission. Since the day before he entered the MTC was the first day of school for Brent (at Mira Costa), Brandon (11th grade at Rancho Buena Vista) and Robby (9th grade at Rancho) it was just Spencer and I traveling to Utah. To make saying goodbye for two years easier I invited my sister Michelle to join us.
Once we got to the MTC we realized that Spencer was the only one with a camera. So we used his camera to take the pictures and then it took 6 months for Spencer to send me copies of the pictures.
I think that when you are told, Okay its time to say goodbye. Missionaries please exit to the right and family members to the left. That was one of the hardest times in my life. Of course since there are opposites in all things, seeing him come home is one of the most joyous times of live....just 15 1/2 months to go!
My sister, Michelle, has been bugging me to start my own blog, but I keep just putting her off & giving her reasons why NOT to start a blog...so she went & did it for me! Isn't she presumptuous...it sure a good thing we get along so well!
