Six More Days

Well, here I am six days until I leave on my mission. I think that I finally have everything that I need! It was getting really scary up until Tuesday. Now I just have to pack everything and hope that my luggage will loose weight before I leave the MTC! I am just over the weight capacity, but I will be getting a backpack in the MTC, so hopefully I will be able to distribute some weight and be good to go.

Wow, It is getting so close! I can hardly believe this is all happening. I know that next Wednesday I will be in the MTC, but it doesn't feel like it is going to be any different then any other day. I am nervous because I don't know what to expect, but over all I am at peace with everything. No worries. I know the Lord will watch over me and my family and everything will be fine.

I have to laugh. My mom and my little brother both got jobs today. It sort of just happened. My little brother will go back to work with Kennocott and my mom will be working as an aid at a local charter school. Now we just need to work on my dad's job.....

Well it is late and I better go... Maybe before I leave I will post some pictures, after all I have a ton to post.

Well, I thought I would post something.... it has been a while shince I last updated.

Things are going well and I am getting close to being ready for my mission. I have my shoes and a few clothes. Really all I have left to go is the last minute things, and a few more clothes. The clothes are what I am most worried about. We are having a hard time finding clothes that are appropriate for a sister missionary. Has anyone ever heard of long skirts?

I am a little nervous! My farewell talk is this coming Sunday. I worry about talking in front of people, and my family and friends are going to be there. Oh well, I will get through it.

I have some new pictures of my nephew that I need to get posted, he is two and a half months, but he seems older since he is so long. He is about the size of a 5-6 month old baby.

Well, that is about all that I have right now for you.
