"I hope you're having a ball" MTC Missionary Care Package


 
My youngest brother entered the MTC last week making it 3 siblings between my husband and me currently serving LDS missions.
 
Between my mom and his friends' packages, I figured this Elder was getting more candy and junk food then he could possibly eat in his two-week stay at the MTC so I sent him a non-food MTC care package.
 
I heard through the grapevine that he has been enjoying playing basketball with the Elders so I sent him a glow-in-the-dark over the door hoop, a pile of pictures of family and a card my kids drew.  I added a card that said "I hope you're having a BALL at the MTC" to tie it all together and I was set.  Simple and sweet.

The ball/hoop was only $10 at Toys R Us so it didn't bother me that he would only get to use it during his limited amount of free time and have to leave it behind when he went onto his mission a couple weeks later.

It brought a smile to his face and that was my goal!
