He's Going To.....

Opening the letter-we're all breathless....


Here's a hint........
Got it yet??????
Telling his public....




It's Anchorage Alaska!!!!!!

We are beside ourselves with excitement for him......

Except I don't think they sell heavy winter coats in Arizona. Quite a contrast!

P.S. His departure date is September 23rd.

YAY! So exciting! :D

When my son Ty was preparing to go to Canada, he bought the heaviest coat available here...TOTAL waste of money! It was okay for the MTC, but as soon as he arrived in Edmonton (in January!) he had to buy a REAL parka there, and it's awesome! :)

AHHHHH!!! That is so AWESOME!!!! My best friend lived in Ancorage for the 6 months, just for fun. Oh my gosh, she loved it, I never thought she would come home! She said the strangest thing to get use to was the Days being 23 hours part of the time and vice versa when the nights were long and days short. HE IS GONNA LOVE IT!!! WHEN????

WhooHoo! Alaska- what a great place to go! Since I guessed Canada, I can say that I was almost right!

YAY!!!

Check out Lands End, that is where my brother (who is in Michigan) got his heavy winter coat.

I am excited for you and your boy!

Awesome! Of course, you'll have to pick him up in person via an Alaskan cruise in 2 years...

GGMA said...

I recommend LLBean for ultra warm coats or wait until he gets there. It's weird to wake up at 2 am and find out that it's still light outside. What an adventure!
