Goodbyes and Hellos

We went through a variety of emotions last week. Some goodbyes were harder than others.
With the STLTs in front of the Halifax Temple--good women!
Frances Buott, a Nova Scotian we met before we left on our mission
Monday morning was the hardest as we packed up and headed west. We've come to love this place!
Arriving in reverse--leaving Nova Scotia
Something we hadn't noticed in all the times we've crossed back and forth between two provinces is the flags flying on the border between Nova Scotia (on the right) and New Brunswick (on the left)
We made a few stops along the way:
Selfies in front of the Montreal, Quebec Temple . . . 

. . . and the Toronto Temple . . .
. . . And the Detroit Temple

     Saturday we arrived to this welcome:

-M. Russell Ballard
  We had a wonderful mission and are thrilled to be back home among some of what matters most.

  1. So glad you made it safe and sound!! I already miss you so much!! Loved calling the office and hearing your voice. It was so fun working with you!! I've been trying to get a picture of those flags for nearly a year now. Every time we go through either we're in a big hurry or there is NO breeze so the flags are flat against the poles. Love you two!!
