Elder Kyrkie is OFF!

I can’t believe my second-to-youngest-tallest-little brother is on his mission.

Kyrkie is now Elder Taylor in the MTC learning Spanish and getting all ready to go to San Antonio, Texas.

He is SO excited!

When I picked him up from the airport he literally could NOT stop talking.


We went to sushi for lunch before I dropped him off and it was so much fun to sit there and talk about missions and the gospel and feel the excitement of knowing that you are doing exactly the right thing.

We skyped with our parents for a second so they could say goodbye and then he stopped talking.


I think he got a little bit nervous when he realized it was about to really happen.

He took his last nap for the next 2 years in my car and then we headed off to the Provo Temple to take a couple of pictures.

Hard to do when one person is 6’4″ and the other is 5’2″.


Look at my little missionary all growed up!

We walked back to the car and we drove into the MTC. I’m getting good at dropping people off here!

He remembered to give me a hug and I got all teary-eyed and told him it was because mom wasn’t there to cry. πŸ™‚

He was so excited and just ready to go. He even left with his cell phone still in his pocket. Oops.

Write him soon!
