Getting Ready for the MTC (April 6, 2011)

The last few days before Hayden entered the MTC were filled with family time and getting the last minutes details ready. Branae got to give her brother his final hair cut before entering the MTC.

We stopped by to see Grandma D'Hulst!

And spent the night at Grandma and Grandpa Shaum's. The next morning Grandma Shaum made her famous pancakes for Hayden for the last time in two years!

I'm ready

The following was in an email sent to Hayden from his Mission President just before he went in-

Enjoy the MTC. Read, read, read the Book of Mormon! It is so amazing.

Good luck with the Spanish.

We are excited to have you here in the Chile Santiago West (best) mission!
