So yes. This week has been a bit stressful. But that's fine! We had exchanges yesterday and those are always nice.
Anyways. Winter is coming and it's starting to get very cold here. But no snow yet! DANG IT. We were going to go to the zoo today but it was closed for the Winter season already! Needless to say I was a little upset. That's the one thing I've always wanted to do for a p-day and we've never been able to figure it out until this week! But, *sigh*. It wasn't meant to be. So we went to see the Titanic and Halifax Explosion grave sites instead. Kind of a morbid alternative but it was still cool. It made me kind of sad that most of the people were just buried with a number because they were never able to successfully identify them.
WELL. I'm trying to make this email exciting and failing miserably. . .
This transfer is already halfway over and I can't believe it! We had zone conference this week and it was a blast. Except for the part where they made me do a roleplay in front of everyone. It's so frustrating for me that I can't speak well in front of people. It makes me feel like Moses does in Exodus. I need an Aaron.
WELP. Sorry this is such a lame email. I love you all! I'm so happy that Erin made it home safely! I can't even tell you how happy it makes me to tell people about my family and just watch their jaws drop as I tell them how many of my siblings have served missions. The most common response is, "Oh, your poor mother!" Haha! But I tell them not to worry. My mom's tough :)
Seriously though, our family is the coolest, and I can't believe how awesome you all are. I'm grateful to all of my siblings who have served missions, for their examples and their testimonies. I'm grateful for my younger siblings, for their desires to serve and their support and admiration for all the older kids. I'm grateful for mom and dad, for raising in the gospel (not just in the church, in the gospel) and for helping us all realize our potentials as sharers and representatives of Christ and His gospel.
I love you all! I hope you all take a minute today to just realize how awesome you are. Think about everything you are and everything you've become and are continuing to become. God has blessed us with so many Spiritual gifts! We should take Elder Pingree's advice to us from conference and really take time to discover and develop our individual Spiritual gifts because it's when we use the talents that we've been given - for good - that we bless and make a difference in others lives.
Seriously though. Y'all are so cool. How did I get blessed with such a cool family?
Love you to the moon and back!!!
