|Hank...flying off to his new adventure.|
(Hank LOVES to frown in pictures! He knows it drives me crazy! He'll be smiling, and as soon as I take the picture, he frowns. He was successful in timing it just right in this picture...again!)
L-R: Cousins David & Justin, good friend Cole, Hank, A.J., cousins Kayle and Kelsey, Jeri, Jonna, cousin Trevor and Carla.
Cousin Justin totally hamming up the goodbye. I don't think he realizes I got a picture of it. Wait until he sees it on this blog!
Hank and Juliet. He LOVES Juliet.
|Our family, one more time for awhile. A.J. will probably be on his own mission when Hank gets home in two years. Our lives are beginning to change more than ever before. I talk about new chapters a lot. It's where we are in life.|
|Cole Baxter, Hank's friend since they were toddlers! Cole turns 19 in December, |
and will probably be heading on his own mission by Feb.
|Lots of emotions. Hank's little sisters.|
|Hank & John saying goodbye. Lots more emotions.|
|Goodbye Hank. I couldn't hold it together anymore. |
So grateful he looked back on this shot!
His expression says SO much!
|Waiting to watch Hank's plane take off.|
|The Elders that greeted Hank at the MTC. One of them |
is going to Ventura on his mission! I don't know which one,
but Karron told me about it. (Her son Jeremiah, Hank's cousin, is there now serving a mission,
and that's also where I grew up! I love how small the world is!)
|I love this guy!|
|And off he goes!|
