"30 days left" or is it "30 days to go"

The kids with Justin last night

A month from today is when Justin goes in the MTC. It is going to fly by way too fast!
As his mom I am having serious issues with this whole mission thing. It is the right thing to do and what I want him to go but at the same time I don't know how I am going to survive him being gone for 2 years! 2 years is a LONG time!!
We've been spending a lot of time together, especially more the last couple of weeks while we've been getting him ready to go. So that of course makes it even harder. We were out shopping today and he just makes me laugh and he's pretty chill to hang out with. He's helpful but at the same time still pretty obnoxious :) I'm really going to miss him - A LOT!!!
We are almost done with getting everything for his mission. When I have all the info gathered I'll post how much it takes to get a missionary ready to go out - and I'm just talking about the financial side of it. It takes a lot spiritually, mentally and emotionally.

I'm so glad that you're going through this first because when it is my turn, I'm going to be a MESS!
