Samantha couldn't be there that day because she had just started working at Trefoil Ranch as a girl scout counselor. But the rest of us and Grandma Gay were all there.
Really, it was a great day. Johnathon had always planned on a mission and it was just what came next for him. I love this picture of Corban helping John with his suitcase.
That night I was discussing the day's events with Jeremiah. I told him how glad I was that John was in the M.T.C he said, "John is dead." I said that he wasn't dead that he was in the M.T.C. Jeremiah said "No, he is dead" I asked him what in the world he was talking about and he said, "The sea is empty now, but it will fill up again and then the sharks will come back and they will eat John and he will be dead." Oh Jeremiah. He's a thinker. We just have to check in with him very frequently to keep tabs on what he's thinking.
