Ok I gotta be quick, I don't have too much time to write because it took me forever to send pictures today.
First, dad, yes, I figured out the Wolverine yesterday. I just
never got around to looking at your instructions because I never had
time, but yeah I figured it out. One question though: How much memory
does it hold up before I have to start erasing pictures?
Jake, I think I have heard of Sister King,(seminary teacher and she is cool) and I think she's cool,
but you can be the judge of that. I can't believe Deep Run lost to
Atlee again (football, ugh), that has to be like the 4th time in a row.
enjoy Jazz Band, it's a lot of fun. They (Striker Soccer Club-Andrea plays) schedule soccer games on
Sunday because they don't follow BYU's honor code, or scheduling matters
or whatever, but you'll be fine. I heard you have new intense dance
classes, so good luck with class.
Alright, I'll start with mom's questions: yes, I got the cake. (Chocolate cake with caramel frosting, family tradition) It
is SO good, like always. However, when I got it, the frosting was all
on the left side, which is fine, i just scooped it on the cake, so it's
good. Um, I don't know people from most of those places that are
reading my blog, but the one from Canton, GA is my roommate from
college, Chris Van Aken. He reports next week and is going to San
Antonio, so I am looking forward to that. I am actually only wearing
contacts when I exercise, and a few other times, but not too often. I
don't remember how much of a supply I got before I left, either a year
or 2 year supply, but I might need some more for the whole mission. I
haven't really been sleeping well, the mattresses are terrible, so it
sometimes takes a while to fall asleep, so that's why I am usually
wearing glasses. I can't really
think of what else I would need from you guys, but overall I am great.
Ok, dad: I actually got released as DL a week and a half ago. When
you sent your letter saying you found out about it, I was already
released ha-ha. All good, but I am nothing now, my companion is district
leader now. The language is definitely coming along, we have some
pretty intense SYL goals this week, and next Wednesday we kick off
consecration week, where we speak only Albanian and give up something
that we like for a week. For my itinerary, I leave October 2, I don't
know flight plans, I'll get them next Friday. But from what my teacher
told me who served there, we fly from Salt Lake to either DC (it is tempting to go hang out at the airport...but we won't) or NYC,
have like a 10 hour layover, and then to Vienna, Austria, another couple
hours of layover, and then to Albania. I'll find out about calling
stuff and let you know next week.
Ok, sorry about the
short email but I am out of time. Tell Eric to write to me. And if the
Nationals win the World Series send me a shirt.
