Shouldn't This Be Easier

On April 11, 2012 we took Jacob to the MTC.  Unloaded his luggage and drove away and left him.  He did give me a monster bear hug as only Jacob can, before we left.  That will have to last two years.  At least I do know it goes by and they do come home better than ever.

We went up on Tuesday and I was going to stop at Janett's or Heidi's but Jacob did not want to.  He just wanted to be with his family and not have to be "sociable."  He was so nervous and was just so quiet when he wasn't talking to his brothers.  We did stop and do a tour of Cove Fort and meet up with Kaber.  That worked out good.  It is quite the journey traveling with all ten of us.

At the MTC we got there way early and took a ton of pictures.  One with Jacob and each sibling to use as a growth measurement.  It is amazing how much each of my boys grow in two years.  Logan freaked out Kaber when he came back and Christopher was amazed by how much Isaac grew.  Who knows, perhaps Zachary will grow to surprise Jacob.

At the MTC Zachary and I were the ones shedding tears.  Then you just drive him to the curb, get him out and his luggage and drive way.  It is so hard to just leave your boy for two years.  It is amazing the growth they have, though.

What was just crazy was that we forgot to get his other suit out of the car.  After we ate lunch and were rearranging things in the back, Zachary said, "Isn't that Jacob's" So we had to take it to the MTC and leave it with someone that said they would get it to Jacob.  They did not even let us in the building.  They met us in the parking lot.  It was an adventure.  I hope he got it.

I am going to try to keep up with this blog because I love the books we made for Kaber and Christopher. It is a great way for them to remember stuff.  Feel free to share this address with anyone that you want.  I am leaving it public as a missionary tool.  Who knows, perhaps someone whose son is going to the same mission may want to read it.
