first of all, i just have to say how proud i am of my sister tricia for leaving on her mission! she was so excited to go and i know that she is loving every minute of it! when it was time to say good-bye khara, michelle, and i were all balling uncontrollably! (i blame most of it on being pregnant). tricia was all smiles and i know that she is exactly where the lord needs her right now (meza, AZ). she is truly amazing! it was a first time for me to visit the mtc, it really was an amazing experience to see her off.
