Our Last Day

The last few days have been a whirlwind. So grateful to have been able to spend time with family and friends as Skyler wraps things up. Our last big feat was to actually pack things into the suitcases. "Packing" things up isn't Skyler's most favorite thing, but it now was a must! :)

We cranked it out together and got it done with a little over an hour to spare before he was to be set apart.

Skyler was set apart on Tuesday night, June 2, 2015. Our immediate family along with Kim Tycksen, Bishop Morrill, Bishop Johnson and President Lowry gathered to share in this special evening. President Lowry gave each of us the opportunity to share and express our love, testimonies and feelings to Skyler. The spirit was very strong and the room was filled with lots of love.

President Lowry then set Skyler apart as a missionary and offered him a beautiful blessing. He then added a few words of counsel and direction for Skyler.  Skyler will be an incredible missionary... the mantle that he now holds could be felt.

Our tradition continues from when Ryan left of having a family "camp out" down in the family room. Being altogether as a family, sharing our last bit of time before Skyler was to leave the next day! By the time I captured this picture, everyone was out!
