Well hello there family!!This email may not be the longest because we don't have a lot of time today and I am not feeling well at all, so I'm sorry for the short email. I can't believe that I have been out for over a year already! That is nuts! Time is flying by so fast, and I have less than five months left!! Weird! I have a feeling that these 3 1/2 transfers that I have left are going to go by fast! So, first off, Congratulations Kellie and Steve!! Woot!! I am soooo excited for you all and for the wedding!! What a wonderful time!! The ring is so pretty and I loved how he proposed! Cute story and cute couple!! I am sad that I am missing out on all the action and the planning, so you all will just have to keep me in the loop so I know somewhat about what is going on!! Thanks! Dad- great job with saying that Oregon State would beat Utah! You made me so proud!! Please send me that snail mail letter about those ideas and everything! It's true- with so many missionaries coming out the members really need to step it up and help us with this work because we can't do it alone. It isn't just a work of the missionaries. It's the work of salvation where each one of us, members and missionaries, have to play a part to have things happen. Mom- If you have time I would love some fruit leathers. Thanks! I am so jealous that you did the dirty dash! I have wanted to do that race for a while!!! I'm glad that you had a good time with it!! :) Next year for me!!
