So after we emailed last week Hermana Budge and I decided to head to the Zoo for some fun. It was a pretty decent zoo and they had some of my favorite animals right as you walked through the door. Pink flamingos!
This week was good. We still have a fetish for tumbleweeds. Sometimes it feels like they are perfectly placed, so that they torment us just as they roll by missing our wheel by inches. Well we decided to take matters into our own hands. We were driving through a neighborhood on a windy day and that stinky little tumbleweed rolled right past us. Well that particular miss was the last straw. So hermana budge grabbed the tumbleweed and now we have a tumbleweed in the trunk of our car for no apparent reason. Not sure what we are going to do with the tumbleweed, but we are pleased to be the proud owners of one. Yep 18 months of nothing but missionary fun does strange things to you :)
We had a zone conference this week. It was weird sitting there knowing that I was the oldest sister. All of these young missionaries - where did they come from?! The hardest part was hearing about all these great things that are going on in the mission or they are going to start doing and knowing that I won't get to be a part of them for very long. However, I was feeling very content and had warm fuzzies as all the good things that I have done on my mission ran through my head.
The most exciting news for the week is that Crystal and her kids are getting baptized on Saturday. They had their interviews on Sunday and they are all set to go. It's been amazing to watch them change and progress. I love them so much and I am so excited for them. It's also nice to know that I won't have to go through a long period of silence after I leave, but that we can stay in contact and I can hear all about how they are doing. The Lord has given me so many blessings on my mission and he is still blessing me right up until the end. I love you! Have a wonderful week!
