Wednesday, September 18th Elder Armstrong
departed for the Provo MTC to serve a mission for
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!
This is Dex and Kellie's last "kiss".
Aren't they good sports?!
This is how we pulled it off!
Kellie started singing "Called to Serve" as we left the photo-op area just East of the MTC.
Our slightly musically challenged family each joined in here and there to sing a phrase or three.
Right as we finished singing "Called to Serve" we pulled up to our parking spot. Spot #1. Fitting place to be for our 1st son and the 1st great grandson on both the Armstrong side and the Larson side to serve a mission. Plus he is going to be a #1 missionary!
I love how
excited he looks!
A few last hugs and pics!
The final wave...
...and I'm still taking pictures
so the missionary helper
gives a friendly final wave
Yep, still taking pictures so this
becomes the final, final wave.
Ok... so this is really the final wave as Elder Armstrong (white arrow) begins his journey to some amazing experiences.
(don't you love the other missionary in the white shirt waving back at Dex? haha!)
