Getting Ready

What to take, what to leave, what to toss, what to store. A million decisions. . .
Scott is figuring out what to buy and take along to keep the car running, the computer running, etc. and what to take to keep WARM.
Janet is trying to figure out what to pack from the kitchen. Scott occasionally shows her the car and reminds her it is a Toyota Corolla, not a Suburban with trailer. She consoles him with assurances that it will ALL fit... a picture will be sure to follow!
What to do for health insurance, how to pay bills, how to keep in touch with family, etc. It is somewhat stressful but we think we are doing pretty good.
Mission Schedule (Tentative!): Report to the Provo Missionary Training Center (MTC) - 6 April between 10 and 11:30 am. We will be at the MTC Monday through Friday, then back to home for the weekend and back Monday the 13th where we will be 'living' at the MTC and catching a shuttle each morning from there to the Provo Temple (across the street almost), eating lunch at the Temple, then returning to the MTC for the evening or doing something special in the temple if we so desire. Scott's thinking he may want to familiarize himself with some of the ordinances in French since the Nova Scotia temple offers several sessions in French.
Anyway, we think we will be returning back home the afternoon of April 16th, packing the car to the gills, and heading out for Nova Scotia on the 17th - weather permitting.
Total mileage to Halifax is about 3015 miles. It may be longer if we have to avoid blizzards.

In The Beginning

Hi family and friends!

We plan to update this page regularly on our mission to the Nova Scotia Temple, then send a group email to everyone notifying them of an update - you can then 'click' the link on the email to see what we are up to. If anyone out there is more experienced or blog savy, let me know if there is an easier way.

Go click HALIFAX to learn about the area, TEMPLE to learn about the temple.

We enter the Provo MTC on 6 April - we figure that is a good date.

Our mailing and physical address while in Nova Scotia will be:
10 Cumberland Drive #104 Phone: 902-434-9211
Dartmouth, NS B2V 2C7
