Sunday, January 18, 2015 "Things are winding down"


These past few weeks have been wonderful. As you could have guessed, they have completely flown by. We had about twelve days that were the exact same haha. That was kinda weird, but a lot of fun. We had some crazy adventures over the past few days though. After finishing up in Bordeaux we headed on over to Bayonne to do a fireside with the members and some investigators. We pulled up to Bayonne Friday night around 7ish and went immediately to hotel.So, seeings how no one had eaten President asks if the restaurant at thehotel was open and sure enough it was. It was funny because we were pretty much the only ones in the restaurant and the whole time we were messing around and joking with the waiters and waitresses, but they would barely even crack a smile with us haha. One thing that was pretty funny is London wears nothing but basketball shorts, even if it is freezing outside. They wouldn't let him in without long pants and a coat on, so he had to go and change before they would let him in. Sister Roney made the most out of it by pulling out her camera and trying to get some photos, but London kept running away. So, I grabbed him and held him there until we could get a good photo of him! The whole dinner was hilarious with President cracking jokes the whole time about literally everything!

Saturday was spent in Bayonne. You probably saw, but I bought a new coat and a couple of shirts with my card! (I hope that it wasn't too expensive). We went and checked out the beach for about an hour in the morning. It was raining and really cold outside, so we didn't stay long, but it was enough time to take some good photos and play football with London for a little bit.

At night we had a fireside that went great! President did a bunch of magic tricks that we helped him with to explain that the gospel works magic in our lives. I was able to talk for about 5 minutes after and explain how I have seen the gospel bless lives. Everything went great and the members seemed to really like it!

We drove back today. It was about a 9 hour trip back home! We stopped by Bordeaux because we heard that S...

wasn't doing to well. He was really happy to see us and we got to spend a little time with him in the hospital. Good news is that he is doing a lot better and will be leaving the hospital shortly! He was so excited to see us.

Life is going great! Things are starting to wind down. I am excited, but really nervous at the same time. I can't wait to see how these next few weeks play out!

I love you so, so much! Tell Brother Shumway happy birthday for me and tell him that I love him! Nice work on winning the competition mom!

Yeah, that would be wonderful to come back before school starts! Food that I have missed, ummm. . . anything and everything! Haha. . . I don't know. Maybe, tri tip, twice baked potatoes, frog eye, that pomegranate apple salad that you make, stromboli, hamburgers, rice crispy treats!
