Wes was set apart by President Keller on Sunday night and officially became a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Thank you Tyson and Hunter for being there with us. You have always been such awesome friends! It was a great evening.
Monday he spent the day with his companion (dad) running errands and getting things fixed around the house that Geoff needed help with. Thank you for being such a good sport Wes! Then the whole family went into pack up Wesley's room and luggage. Ash is already moving into Wesley's room:)
We had one last friends get together Monday night. I don't think Hunter wanted to leave. We didn't want him to either. It's hard to say goodbye to friends. But 2 years will fly by!
Tuesday we got the last of the laundry and packing done, said goodbye to the Clarke family and Bishop, called nonny and poppy over skype and had our goodbyes with them and family prayer. Thank you dad, for a beautiful prayer. It's hard not having my parents be here with us. Hard for them and us. They are on their own mission in Guatemala and we wouldn't want them anywhere else!
Then it was really time to go. We headed to Salt Lake City to the temple where Wes has been working for the past few months on the grounds crew planting all those beautiful flowers. We had to see what Wes had been up to and get some photos.
Here we are in front of some of the flowers he planted.
