Days before Babups left, we tried to get in some family togetherness one last time. Plus, we had a lot of packing to do. Two suitcases for two years in Africa… a bit of a stress for mama.
Time with Presto talking b-ball and the Utah Jazz.
Getting in our favorite breakfast place, Cracker Barrel!
Running errands and finding last items for his suitcase stash…Presto is not amused with shopping.
Babups’ last supper in Tucson was the famous Sonoran hotdog and a large strawberry Eegee! Tucsonans know of what we speak.
Getting advice from older brothers right before he was set apart.
The famous Arizona Tucson Mission stair photo of the family….most get this picture when they are going home from their mission. Babups gets one on his way to his mission!
President Walker of the Tucson Arizona Stake set Babups apart. Now he is an Elder.
Elder Babups will not return to Tucson after his mission, as we will be back in Idaho by then. So this is not only a good-bye to the family, but a good-bye to Tucson, AZ.
Had to include our friends the saguaro cacti!
Here we go to the Tucson International Airport….this is getting real now!
And now the dreaded good-byes….
Good-bye for TWO Elder Babups! We will be praying for you and loving you from afar.
Follow his adventures at his missionary blog.
Hurrah for Israel!!!
