So first of all. ONE YEAR!!! How weird is that? Can’t believe it. It’s been one of the craziest most amazing years ever and I’m so excited for the 6 months still ahead.
So weird to think everyone back home is starting school again. Good luck :) that’s so cool Anna is going to Eastlake! Go wolves. And Will is in middle school and Abbi is a high school senior! When I realize things like that it makes me feel like I’ve been gone forever.
So this week was really good! I got all your packages! Thank you so much! I loved them! Best famiglia eva. And guess what, we played UNO last week at our youth activity and I thought of you guys, haha. That’s our family game for sure :)
Oh and this week I had a little bike accident. We turned a corner and our bike lock fell out of my basket and went through the front bike tire and stopped it completely and I kind of did a reverse wheelie and everything flew out of my basket. Luckily there was a cute little old man that ran and picked up all my stuff for me. He was so sweet. I was fine, I just got slammed in to my handle bars a little bit so a little bruised but I’m fine. The only problem was that my brakes were jammed so my tires wouldn’t move AT ALL. So I had to carry my bike home on my back for like half a mile, or so, haha. We got some funny looks but hey, it was a good work out. The anziani (Elders) fixed it for me and they told me to still take it in to get it looked at – so we did and they tightened the brakes and now my bike squeaks every time I ride. Helga (bike’s name) is just struggling in her old age, haha, but it’s all good.
And one of our investigators is doing so awesome and just waiting for the day she can be baptized. She and her boyfriend are waiting for his divorce to be legalized so they can be married and she can be baptized. So we are praying a lot for her and for everything to work out for them. We’ve had some investigators break our hearts this week but we are just pushing along and know everything will work out. We have the faith :)
On Monday I went back to Firenze for a zone conference! haha so weird to go back...again. and I got to see Sorella Jarvis and Hoffman! So fun to see them again :) and my girls form Montevarchi all went to EFY last week and LOVED it so I am so happy for them :) so cool.
Well I think that is all for this week! Good luck with school and thanks for all the pics from the Hood Canal vacation :) looks like it was so much fun :)
Love and miss you and see you in 6 months! :)
Vi voglio bene! (I love you)
