One last hug!

Photos being posted


This is Kristen's mom. I am learning how to post photos to Kristen's blog, and unfortunately didn't get the text next to the photos I just posted. Since I can't see the photos as I write this, I will give a general description. Several are from the airport in Spokane. One is of Kristen with her sister, Kate, before Kate left for school. There is no picture of Amy with Kristen that morning because Amy was running out the door, and Kristen was not ready yet, but I was reassured they said good-bye and hugged each other. ;-) The last is of Kristen and President Baird. He set Kristen apart as a full-time missionary the night before. I woke up at about 5:45 with my first thought being, "I didn't get a picture!" So, I watched the time trying to estimate when it would be safe to call his house. I called at 6:30 :-). I think he was afraid we were on our way over right then. Haha :-D. We went by his business on the way to the airport and got this photo. Now I will try to post more photos with captions. :-)

See you in 18!

Thank you to everyone for your support, encouragement, and love as I prepared to serve my Father in Heaven in the Philippines for 18 months. I'll miss all of you while I'm gone, but know that I am thinking about you, and that you are in my prayers. I love you! Write me! :)
