MTC....the 5 minute drop off:)

MTC day was so FUN! 

 When we got to the MTC there were missionaries everywhere!  They were smiling and waving as we drove in.  As we pulled up to the curb, there was Matt's brother Braden.  What a little tender mercy.  It made the whole experience a little easier!  Jessica's luggage was taken out of the car by her dad, she gave everyone a hug, the host sister missionary took our family photo, and she was off!  Not too much time for a whole lot of tears!  What a great experience to see her walk off with excitement and confidence!!!  She was soooo ready to be a missionary!

The "Setting Apart" night!

Tues. night before the MTC, Jessica was set apart by President Scott Hintze.  The whole family was there plus both sets of grandparents.  Everyone got to give Jessica advice.  The best advice was from Spencer.  He told her not to get in trouble so that she wouldn't get sent home:).
