Sept 17, 2013 PackingI was surprised to find out last Friday that I was heading out a day earlier. I spent the day Monday picking up the last few things and packing my bags.
September 17, 2013 Airport
Jesse's flight today is at 8:25 am. Dad, Mom, Mikaela and Taylor went with him to the airport. He checked in his bags, 37 pounds and 46 pounds. Was a relief that they made weight! We met another Elder, who was also heading to the Mexico City MTC. There were a lot of other missionaries who were heading out to the mission there as well. It was comforting that the Elders leaving the Provo MTC warmed up to Jesse and talked with him as he went through security. It was hard having him leave us, but we know that he has made the right choice. He was nervous today, but so excited to go. Good luck Elder Jorgensen! You will be in our thoughts and prayers each day :)
Walking towards the entrance or the airport. Everyone was eager to help Jesse.
Just after Jesse checked in. Bart was showing him how to use the screens to check his flight. Taylor was so excited to pull Jesse's carry-on.
