Saying good-bye :(

Saying good-bye to Kyler was one of the hardest things I've had to do.  Although, I was so excited and happy for him, and really wouldn't want him anywhere else, it was very difficult.

We started the day by making a quick run to Walmart to get some last minute items.

Then it was home to squish everything into two suitcases. And I thought it was hard to pack for a week-long vacation!  However, eventually we got it all in.

Before we knew it, it was time to head out.  Kayden and Berkley had to say their good-byes at home.  (They both had practice that they couldn't miss)

Brothers and best friends!

Little Sister, who he is very proud of!

It was a cry-fest!  I'm surprised I was able to take pictures

Taken from the car as we were leaving.

We made a quick stop at Sonic for lunch.  None of us really felt like eating...but we did.  I knew Kyler needed something before he boarded the plane.

Talking with Grandma Sharon or Grandpa Sherrell

Headed into the airport

Waiting to check-in

One last hug for mom!  (His heart was beating so fast)

The little brothers who adore Kyler

Kyler and Dad

Hugs and a few words of encouragement



And he's off!

Watching as he goes through security!

I was a mess!! I did not want to leave!  We watched him until we couldn't see him anymore.

Uncle Taylor was able to see him at the gate, because he was flying that day.  He posted this picture to instagram...

We are so very happy for the decision Kyler has made to serve a mission.  Does that make it any easier to say good-bye?  Maybe just a little. :)

Here is a picture of Kyler before we left home.

One last feel of the glove :)

Love you bunches Kyler and see you in two!
