Sad Parting....

We have not heard from Brinton yet but wanted to give everyone an update from last week.

On Wednesday the 5th of August we dropped Brinton off at the Missionary Training Center (MTC). We took some pictures together at the Temple which is across the street from the MTC.

The kids had time for one more jumping and pointing picture.

Then it came time to say our goodbyes which actually went pretty well.  Dad was amazingly strong and did not front of Brinton, Preston held it together with the Lamaze technique of deep breathing, Becca shed some tears and so did Mom, but overall everything went well.  

How did Brinton do with the goodbye?  I think the picture tells the story.  He has been looking forward to starting his mission and was excited to be entering into the service of the Lord. 

We are anxiously waiting to hear from him and will post a picture with his letter when we receive it.
