Hong Kong LDS Temple
Tuesday morning, our last day here, we got up and went to the temple together. Before we left I was privileged to hear her play sweet hymns one more time.
She is truly a gifted musician and plays the piano from her heart. Her music will truly bless the lives of the Chinese people.
Flat BriAnna...maybe a little oddly distorted but she will have to do. I could either go with a shorter 5 foot version or a gigantic 6 foot version. We opted to go a little smaller but she is oddly not proportionate.
This is what our family will look like for the next 18 months.
BriAnna and her sweet BFF Emilee who will be joining her in the MTC in 2 weeks. Emilee will be serving in Vancouver, WA in an ASL mission. I am so proud of all these beautiful young women and their examples.
Of all the most tearful goodbyes, this one was the hardest to watch. Poor girl is going to miss her puppy.
Then to Provo for a little pre-MTC breakfast at IHOP as a fam. We are so thankful that Jaiden has been in a place with his treatment that he has been able to be such a big part of this process. Tender tender mercies.
Then to the temple grounds for some family photos. It was SO cold outside! Our little winter visit in June caught us all a bit off guard this week. I am going to miss seeing these 4 all together even though they don't always get along.
Dad is so so so proud of his oldest daughter.
Watching a relationship start over from scratch is the most priceless gift I have ever been given as a mom. I am so thankful for this time these two have had together to reconnect and heal together. I'm going to miss having them together.
Everyone was fine until THIS happened. The minute she hugged her brother the dam broke and the tears didn't stop. Such a sweet thing to witness.
A little teary with Makynlee still.
As annoying and pesky as the two younger ones can be, she can't doubt she will miss them. Those are REAL tears! Who'd have thought? I am betting Makynlee will be close to BriAnna's same height in 18 months.
