Amanda Goes to the MTC

We took Amanda to the Mission Training Center today. Ed Melzer got up early and fed Ed Bush before he went to the airport. He (Ed Bush) had stopped over in Utah for the day, and continued on to his business trip to California this morning. Amanda got out of bed early to give her dad a hug and share a few tears. Amanda said goodby to Grandma and Grandpa, and we left to run a few last errands before dropping her off at the MTC.

We had to return to Jdawgs to enjoy a polish dog together before dropping Amanda off. We last went there with Crystal the day she went to the MTC. We have started a tradition. Too bad we've run out our daughters!

Brittany and I got our last hugs and shed a few tears at curbside, where Amanda and her luggage was whisked away by the elders who met our car. We're sitting around tonight wondering what she is doing, who her new companion is, and even what she had for dinner! I guess we'll have to wait till next week to find out!


  1. That is so exciting! It sounds like everything went well, have a safe trip home...

  2. I just caught up on your blog....thanks for posting all the posts and pics about Amanda. I felt bad that I didn't get to tell her what a great job she did on her talk. Loved the pictures! Thanks for sharing....we love her :o)

  3. I miss her already! We'll just have to talk with letters instead of the phone now.
