She arrived!!!

Tuesday, October 21, 2014 

*part of this is from Sister Lovell....and from the momma. 

Our 9 New Missionaries from the USA have arrived!

We were full of excitement as we drove to the airport for the 3rd time today!  We had made two trips earlier this morning for missionaries that were returning to their homes.  The anticipation was great as we looked forward to meeting these new missionaries.  We knew that it will be only a matter of time before we are just as attached to them as we are the ones that returned to their homes this morning!
We love to catch the first glimpse of them through the frosted glass!

There is Brookie!  Oh no, where is her 30 lb overweighted other suitcase.  Not fun having to pay $200 for the overage!  But what a cute smile she has!

They are tired but they are excited to be here!

Learning about the mission

Lovely Mission President and his wife

They all had empanadas !

It was amazing getting to talk to Brookie on her little trac phone we purchased for her at Walmart.  She was up beat and felt like it was amazing to be outside of the MTC and get to talk to other people.  She felt like everyone was staring at their name tags.  Proud to be wearing it, for sure.

It has been a long 2 days of travel....but the smile on her face and her eagerness to begin her mission is enough to get us through not having her with us.

We mailed off her sleeping bag.  It was an item on her list of things to bring to the mission.  We were told we could try and mail it or she could buy it in Argentina.  I decided to mail it....and I found out that it made it to the mission home.  The crazy part is that they are shocked and amazed it made it.   They have recently been advising parents to stop mailing because the packages are just not making it to their final destination.  We have to pay $70 in custom fees....but its OK with me.  At least I know she has a sleeping bag.
