Chloe left for the Iowa Des Moines Mission on Wednesday Sept. 25th.  I am her mom and will updating this with her emails.  I am not as creative as she is so I will just post the pictures of dropping her off at the MTC.  It was a great AND a hard day.

Thanks for your support!  - Kristen

Saying Goodbye near the Provo Temple

SO HARD to say goodbye.
Our new favorite picture of her.

3 suitcases, a backpack, and a purse for 18 months!
She was smiling.

Dear new adventure,

Your life is in slow motion. You say goodbye to your closest friends, hoping you'll get to steal more time with them anyway. 

It's those moments you steal that leave the magic lingering in your heart. 
When one smiles at you on the lawn, on a blanket, and you know they understand you completely. 

In those moments where you can't picture life getting any better than this. You can't imagine being happier than you are at this moment. 

And yet you know everything will be worth it.

This is the day I've been waiting for.

Goodbye, my world as I know it.
Hello adventure in Iowa. 

I love adventure. Especially the beginning of adventure. It's my favorite.

And I wouldn't have it any other way.

Signing off as Chloé Michelle.

Here comes Sister Sumsion.
