Leaving on a Jet Plane

The flight to Mexico City left Madison at 6:00 a.m. We were at the airport at 4:30 a.m. to check his bags and to have a little time for a goodbye. I was really hoping that they would give us gate passes so we could be with him for as long as possible, but the ticket counter guy had no mercy on us. I was beyond sad, but when we went upstairs to where the security line starts we noticed that his gate was right in front of us (yes, Madison is a pretty small airport). What a tender mercy that was. We were able to watch him go from security, to his gate, to boarding the plane and then watching the plane taxi away. He had a connecting flight in Atlanta where it sounded like he met up with other missionaries going to Mexico City. This is the BEST decision that Logan could ever make in his life at this time, but it was still SO HARD to let go of that last embrace.

Walkin' away a winner!

How crazy is it that this lady has on a Las Vegas sweatshirt?!

About to board. 
Logan wondered how he would be able to tell if he ran into other missionaries. 
We just told him that he'd know!

We were able to watch a beautiful sunrise through some teary eyes.
