We left for the Long Beach Airport at 5:45 am and had to take the van because we had so much luggage! Sherry's flight was the same as ours so we were all traveling to Utah together! Aimee said good-bye to Andrew and Erica at the Airport, and to Kate and Noah, and Farryn in Lehi later on Tuesday afternoon. Ricky, Dallin, and Michael came to visit her in Pleasant Grove Tuesday night and gave her lots of tips for the MTC and missionary life in general. We were staying with Grandpa and Grandma Jensen so she said good-bye to them before we left for the MTC.
Saying good-bye to a missionary is always bittersweet . . . there is no place you would rather your child, grandchild, sister, aunt, or friend be than serving the Lord as a full-time missionary, but you miss the day to day involvement in their lives; their hugs, their smiles, their voices . . . We love you Aimee!
