He will enter the MTC on February 11th--(one month after his 19th birthday)--and will be gone for 2 years!
He is such a STUD! He electively chose NOT to attend BYU this past semester so he could leave as soon as possible on his mission. He is also the only 3-4 yr. old I knew who electively woke up, got dressed, and waited by the front door w/ his scriptures to go to early morning seminary with his teenage siblings-NO LIE (he went a few times with us and would have kept going if my parents had not toned down the issue!)
He is the 8th of 9 Hutchings children to serve--he is potentially the last missionary to serve in both Dan and I's families...(since my 17 year old sister is pretty sure she is marrying Edward the Vampire before she can go!)
We are going to treasure having a missionary again in our family's-there has been a "break"!
We cannot wait to write letters and send packages!!!
We are so proud of the decisions you have made to get there!
WE LOVE YOU ELDER HUTCHINGS!!!!!
