Today was a big day in the Walker Family. The one and only boy in the fam, the baby bro, embarked on his two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. What a good boy! Mom put him on the plane in Phoenix this morning and 3 of his 4 sisters (that's right, I'm in dumb old AZ) met him in Utah and delivered him to the MTC (Missionary Training Center--bet you non-mormons didn't even know one of those existed, didjya?). After about 3 weeks there, he'll head off to the war-torn region of, uh, ok, Boise. Not really war-torn. I was going for some drama.
I love these pictures, especially the one with all 4 of my siblings. Are they not gorgeous, people? I ask you! I'm sad I missed that moment, but happy for Jerry and his big adventure. Good luck, Elder Walker! And good luck, ELIZABETH Walker (aka mom), who no doubt is home right now sitting in a dark corner amidst a pile of crumpled tissues and thumbing through Jerry's baby pictures.
