Last Wednesday we flew up to Utah with Sarah to drop her off at the Missionary Training Center in Provo. We had just had a whirlwind trip to San Diego with Jacob and a couple of her friends. She stayed up all night packing and we got up at 3:00 AM to catch an early flight so we could spend the day together. What we ended up doing is napping for a few hours after we got there and then getting lunch at The Old Spaghetti Factory, picking up a few forgotten items and then she was off.
Sarah has always been a joy to raise. (After about the age of 3...3 was kind of hard)
More than being my daughter, she has been my friend. She is smart, fun, funny and so much fun to be around, and I am going to miss her.
They warned me that "they grow up fast"...and it is true, they do. She is all grown up now.
She has things to do and a mission to complete.
I was so sad to say goodbye, but I know she will be an awesome missionary and she will serve well. It is time for my little girl to spread her wings.
The people of the Spokane Washington Mission are going to love her. What's not to love?
