Today was great! We left our house about 10:00 and headed to Provo. We went to Einstein Bagels for lunch. That is where Elder Ropelato chose to go knowing that he probably wouldn't feel like eating much. Justin told Jaydan he hopes he chooses some where a bit nicer. :) Anyway it was good and just being together was nice. Our whole family was there except Kevin of course, but I'm sure he was thinking of us.
We made it to the MTC about 45 minutes early. (we're always early) We took quite a few pictures and went into the room where the instruction begins. I could feel how excited Brax was. I promised not to cry and even though my eyes got teary I kept my promise. It was neat seeing everyone hug and also get a little teary. You could feel the love our family shares. I love that! Anyway we went quick and Elder Ropelato went and began his mission. He's there ready to serve and he is really excited. He is such a hard worker that he won't have to adjust much. Maybe on the studying part, but with everyone else studying it won't be that hard either. He is a choice spirit that is for sure. What a great example to our family. We all sure love him alot.
Hey and to all you friends out there-you have been great! We loved having you over to our home. You have been like family and we hope you know we love you. Good Luck to all the missionaries, you'll all be great! We have a boating activity planned with the girls, but don't even think about them. Keep your minds on your missions!
The MTC is what you make it. It can be a really hard thing or a really positive and great thing. It is your choice! That's true with each day, so choose to make them all great!
