The last few weeks have been crazy busy as we have finished up everything for Annie to leave on her mission. She has had 5 months since she got her call but it has finally happened. She is gone. That is bitter-sweet for me. I miss her so much already, but I am so happy she is doing what the Lord would have her do. Tues. night she was set apart as a missionary. It was a sweet hour as each family member shared their testimony and advice for Annie before our Stake President set her apart as a missionary. I was especially touched by my oldest grandsons sweet testimony. Below is Annie with the Priesthood holders who set her apart.
A big thank you to Jenn who had a migraine headache but was a champ and was still there to support her little sister anyway.
Annie and my oldest grandson are best friends!
She is going to miss her nieces and nephews sooo much!
She had a bunch of friends over after her setting apart and these two dropped by to say good bye before she left yesterday.
Driving down to the MTC. Having all my kids in the car seemed like old times when they were all young. We shared some fun memories on the way down.
Annie with her siblings.
With her Mom.
Annie at the MTC. Or should I say Sister Fisher.
When I got home from the MTC I mailed her a package and emailed her. Then in the evening Alyse, Jarom, and I took Eliza and Brianna to do fire works. it was a fun evening and kept my mind off missing my daughter.
Before Annie left we had a fun late night family night with some of the family at my oldest daughters house. We made our own snow cones. Yummy.
We had a celebration in honor of Annie going to the Temple and on her mission.
The people of Tahiti will be blessed to have Annie serving there and she will be blessed to be there serving them. Good luck with learning French and Tahitian. We know you can do it! I feel so blessed to be Annie's mom:)
