Yesterday was one of those bittersweet kind of days. Our little baby brother left on his mission to Little Rock, Arkansas. Alex has always been my little sidekick and I don’t think it hit me that he was actually leaving until the night he got set apart. There were a lot of tears that night. All the sudden he just looked older, looked like a little missionary! But as much as we are going to miss having our brother around, we are so proud of the work he’s doing and can’t wait to hear all about his adventures down South! I’m so grateful for experiences like this that strengthen us as a family and the positive way mission service has blessed us, be it my grandparents, my dad, and my husband. Go get em’ Elder Stewart!
