We Help Send Caleb off to the MTC (Missionary Training Center)

We fed Caleb blueberry pancakes on his way to Provo to the MTC.  As you can see, he is extremely tired.  I told him to just tell the people at the MTC when he got there that he had been having too many late nights and that he needed a couple of days to rest up before they got started and that I was sure they would understand.  But what a good looking,  great young man, headed for two years in Detroit, a tough mission, but close to Ann Arbor where we spent three years in grad school.

  2. As a matter of fact, Carolyn, it IS the same shirt! Jim is wearing the same shirt, as well. ;) Our MTC/sending off a missionary shirts. (Kind of like my reunion shorts.) Sent Caleb off without a hitch--he was ready to roll! --Sharman & Jim from Dwight & Velnas
