(By Taylor's Mom, Alicia)
We whipped into action. We only had 7 short weeks before he would be giving his farewell talk in Gladstone Ward and leaving for Utah. We knew where he was going, and had his list of required items. We applied for his Passport, shopped, and studied all about Costa Rica. Taylor put in his notice at work, so he would have time to spend a few days in Albuquerque with Luke and Jenny, then go on his last High Adventure with his Dad and the Young Men from Gladstone Ward.
We received the list of requirements for his Visa, and miracles happened to get everything in to the Missionary Travel Department well before the deadline. I mean, miracles REALLY happened.
The time just flew by and before I knew it, there was only one day left here at home.
