Entering the MTC!

What a beautiful day to be entering the MTC! Although I'm not sure I did it perfectly. I forgot to bring my alarm clock to give to Chris. Also I was barely able to drop him off at the MTC and give him a hug because I had to leave straight to work. I was only able to take one picture before He left. But Despite the fact that I wasn't able to do this perfectly for Chris, he couldn't have looked happpier. Chris looked so handsome with his suit on and his hair combed like a missionary. I could just feel the spirit so strong with Chris when I met up with Chris and took him to the MTC. I'm so proud of him as a sister. I know that Heavenly Father is so very proud of Chris as well. I know that none of us was available to sit with Chris and say our goodbyes in the mtc but Chris was perfectly fine with that. I know this because Chris is so ready for this journey. He's ready to enter the mission and serve the Lord. I guess it's the Martin tradition to enter the MTC alone BUT with full confidence and family support 100% behind him. I'm so thankful I was able to be a part of this with Chris and be the last to see my (our) brother (son) go on this mission. He's going to be GREAT!

This is one of the best posts ever. Thanks for the great description Laura. I felt the Spirit just from reading it. I am so proud of Chris and his attitude. It makes me sad that I couldn't see him up to the last moment but I'm glad you were there for him. It is the Martin tradition to enter the MTC alone but I know he didn't feel alone. I'm so excited for him.
