The procedure for entering the MTC changed a few years ago to pretty much a "stop, drop, and roll". When you turn into the driveway of the MTC, you drive past many missionaries standing next to posts that have numbers on them. We arrived a little early before Janelle's 12:30 check-in time, and drove most of the way down towards the exit. We pulled over by 2 Elders who opened our doors, took Janelle's luggage out of the car, asked her a couple of questions, and helped her take her luggage to the MTC. That was it! Because it is so quick, we decided to take pictures at the temple across the street.

We have a tradition in our family that when you go on a mission, you take a little lamb with you. We got some pictures of Janelle with the original "Lambsi", who has been on missions to France (in the 70s'), Michigan (in 1985-86), France/Switzerland (1987-89), and the Family History Center Mission in Salt Lake City (2002-03). The grandkids take a "Lambsi Jr." on their missions, and they have been all over the world.
