Oh man! I can't believe it. Only 13 more days until Ben enters the MTC. He's pretty much prepared physically. We got everything he needs. Emotionally it's starting to hit. The reality of being gone for 2 years. The things he'll miss. Mostly, the thought of loved ones who may not be here when he returns. On the other hand he is starting to get very excited. He's still trying to decide between a morning (right after his talk) open house or and evening one. Anybody who has an opinion, please let us know.
I'm looking forward to the time when I can post Ben's words and not have to do this on my own. Thanks to all of you good friends who have helped him get to where he is today.
