Dear family and friends,

It’s hard to feel like I have much to say this week because things have been pretty normal. News is that the area president, Elder Johnson, is going to be with the mission this week and that we’re all shining up our shoes to learn from a Seventy.

I want to wish a very happy birthday to my oldest niece, Hanna, who turns TEN this year. Congratulations Hanna!! I can’t believe you’re TEN already!!

Elder Castillo has been a hoot! He is always singing, laughing, telling a joke, or pulling a sucker out of his pocket for a little kid. That guy is gonna be a fun dad. His main problem right now is that not one of the three girlfriends that’s waiting for him have dumped him yet! He doesn’t know how he’s going to get out of this one. I keep telling him to just wait; he still has five more months for dear johns before he finishes in July.

Hope you all are doing well. Thanks for all the attention in my inbox. Here’s a couple quick responses. Take care and I’ll tell you all about the visit of Elder Johnson next week.

Thanks Karl and Annette for your email! Don’t worry, I’m saving the trunks for May!

Alene, thanks for the pictures and the stories. Sounds like Bailey is turning out to be quite the little talker. When I left she didn’t really talk at all. I still have the recording of her singing the annie songs with Tyler, haha. Sounds like you guys are having lots of fun. Don’t particularly remember Elder Giles, but how fun! I’m sure I was there both when he entered… AND when he left.

Mom, I’m so jealous that you guys are going to Brick Oven! It’s definitely in the top ten on things to do when I get home. Luckys.

Dad, thanks for your email. I was laughing and learning at the same time, haha. Don’t worry, I’m paying attention.

Jenn, if you still haven’t sent anything, don’t! It might not get here in time. Also, many thanks for the update and the love. Hope you are doing well!
