I reallly like getting the letters on DE- especially cause its free and i wont have to use my email time reading letters. so keep sending letters that way please! i see taylor a lot, not as much as i saw him last week. cause we were doing all this new missionary stuff last week but i've seen him a few times this week.. like once or twice a day. and whenever i see him he is soooo nice to me. like unbelieveably. dont tell him i said that. he'd be embarassed. but its fun to see him. they dont let me hug him but i give him arm pats and i think he likes that. he seems to be really happy and doing so well! his comp is a cutie. i have like 6 friends in the mtc that i knew before and i feel so cool when i get to say hi to them.. i already say most of my prayers in spanish and can bear some of my testimony in spanish. we learn so much everyday it just blows my mind. everyone in the class knows so much spanish already i feel so behind but i know it'll get better. my teachers are really nice and never get mad when i ask dumb questions. there are 5 elders in my district and 4 sisters including me. 1 elder and 3 sisters are going to houston south and me and 4 boys going to FL. yesterday we taught the first discussion memorized and it was scary but went well. they make us memorize so much. i am sending home some thank you cards i need you to mail to people i dont have the addresses please. sunday we had our sacrament almost all in spanish and i didnt understand most of it but oh well. then in this meeting in front of 300 sisters i had to pray but i did it in english thank goodness. my compainon and i get along most the time but she gets on my nerves occasionally.. she gets hyper alot.. i LOVE gym time here. we go 5 days a week and i run on the track the whole time. 10 times around=1 mile and the other day i ran 4.5 miles. a typical day here: up at 6:28 get ready. spanish 7-7:45 then breakfast. spanish for like 4 hours then lunch. person study 1 hour, companion study 1 hour, lannguage study on our own 1 hour. i am doign a tutor twice a week starting next week. ok then usually gym or dinner and another 4 hour class. thats all we do everyday is eat, class, gym. thats my life for the next 8 weeks. i'll be sad when tay leaves here! send this email to whatever family, sorry i dont have time to send personalized ones. i love you all so so much????? those are exclaimation marks but my computer just broke. i will write as much as i can. hope all is well. i think about you all the time and i pray for you= and i know you are praying for me and i thank you for that? ??
