Aaaaand, we're off!

Well, we finished up at the MTC last night.  Even though it was only 4 days of class, it was a very long week!  We were in class from 8:00 to 4:30 or 5:00 every day, and for those of us who haven't had to sit that long for a while, it was tough!  We both learned quite a lot.  The mission software the church has developed is lots better than it was 5 years ago when we were getting ready to go to Japan.  I'm looking forward to using it.
So this morning we loaded up and are headed to New York!  We decided to buy a new car before we left and you see us here with our brand new Camry, and yes, it really is that red!  We love it.

We traveled to Vernal and did a session in their beautiful temple.  It was a great experience.  The people were so helpful when they found out this was the first time we had been there.  This is the only temple in the church that is a renovated tabernacle.  It is really gorgeous.  We traveled up through Flaming Gorge after leaving Vernal and were really impressed with the geology.  Really amazing with lots of red cliffs and a beautiful lake.  We will travel to Laramie tomorrow (I know, short trip) and will spend Sunday with my brother Val, his wife Andy and girls, Miranda and Keisha.  Then Monday morning we will head for New York in earnest.
