Elder Coleman

Heather and I had the chance to drop Nathan, now Elder Coleman off at the MTC this morning. I was anticipating not being able to say too many goodbyes and stuff, but they really wanted me in and out. They seemed even a little bit reluctant to let us take this one picture. But, Elder Coleman is now safely there, no Swine Flu, and he is ready to go!


We made him a nice last home-cooked meal this morning our International Flapjack and Sausage Breakfast (sausage, eggs, pancakes, and orange julius). We enjoyed it, and he certainly did. He fidgeted around all morning, we went through his luggage again, he talked on the phone to the family, and now he is off. I can't believe my little brother is a missionary! It seems like just yesterday when we were running around in the mountains, building treehouses, wrestling, and of course involving ourselves in the little bit of sibling rivalry that occasionally happened. :) So much is changing! I guess you can't stay young forever. We will miss him, but I know he will be a great missionary serving the Lord in the Anchorage Alaska Mission.

Dang, it would of been fun to come and say goodbye to him but I think they are trying to keep people away. Thanks for the post.

There was sibling rivalry in the Colelman household?! I don't believe it!!! Congrats to Nathan. He'll be great, I'm sure.
