|We took him to Cafe Rio and took this picture that is great of him and round-faced of me.|
|Then I took the Front Runner to a meeting and found like a billion missionaries waiting at the station for who know's what|
|On Wednesday morning, I took Joseph and Natalie to school with me, and then we took this unpicturesque picture in the Zupa's parking lot, where we had lunch.|
|Then we went to the MTC, making a brief pit stop at the Provo temple, and tried to get just one freaking picture of the new Elder jumping in the air. Just ONE!|
|Then we tried to take a good shot of him being all excited to leave and me being all weepy. But mostly they just turned out awkward and hilarious and I feel obligated to put them up on this blog because I'm just that kind of a generous soul.|
I was obviously doing pretty well with the whole emotional-ness. As in, I had not yet shed a tear, and I wasn't even thinking about how freaking long two years is, and two Christmases, and maybe two weddings?? and I was ready to take some more pictures in front of the MTC sign!
|This is, not the MTC sign.|
|See all those missionaries behind us? This is the MTC, and it is right here where you drop off your family member or friend in front of about 8 million missionaries, and take 60 seconds to say your goodbyes.|
|I'm pretty sure we didn't take up the whole 60 seconds, mostly because that's when I started tearing up, and that is always my cue to disengage and escape.|
|Here's how I recovered: sneaking into a pool with Natalie where we are not residents and did not register to lay out in the sun and nap.|
Before leaving, Joseph put me in charge of his missionary blog! So, snaps about that. Here's the link I promised: http://elderjosephconnor.blogspot.com Follow along or check in every once in a while!
