Dropped Tyler off at the MTC into the arms of Elder Parker Dial! The curb appeal doesn't really have any ( if you know what I mean). We only got yelled at once. We left yesterday, went to the SLC Temple, dinner with Aaron and family, visited with Sam and Kayla until late and then bed. Got up, repacked the pants I hemmed on the way down, drove to Provo, got two new ties at the missionary stores, had his last supper at his favorite Jimmy Johns, went up to the Provo Temple for pictures and then got in the car line to drop him off. I'm not sure which is worse, the meeting or the dropping off (neither are exceptionally great). However, we all did pretty good and he was so excited to just go. Elder Dial was the icing on the cake and so much easier to leave him in familiar hands. Miss him already, but he will do great!
