Well, its been a long (but seemingly short) journey here at the MTC. I am super glad that I will be leaving this place and moving on to France. Thank you everyone who wrote me letters over the weekend. I got about 9 letters total :) Thank you especially to both the Grandparents for sending me a letter! :) I loved each letter and they made me smile :)
As you know, nothing too special happened again this week, but things are starting to calm down. The teachers are getting more laxed and we are starting to get stuff ready to go for the long haul to Paris. Its crazy how fast the time goes here, and i've been told that it goes even faster once you are in the field, so I guess we'll see.
I'll be leaving the MTC at 1:30 PM for the airport with a scheduled flight from SLC to Paris (direct) leaving here at 4:50 PM. I'm going to try to call most of you that I can. Since mom and dad will be there, we may even be able to Facetime and you can talk to me then. If not, I'm sorry, I wish that I could call everyone and talk to you, but they dont give us that much time. I will be Skyping from France on Christmas, so make sure you're at my house or wherever so you can talk to me then. I am sending a tape home this week for you guys to listen to, and yes it will have a lot of French on it (spoken) but you cant make fun of my crappy accent, ok? Deal.
I'll be arriving in France at 11:00 AM their time (so like 4 AM here). I am going to be snapping a ton of photos and will be posting most of them to Facebook once I have the chance so that everyone can see them. I'll be uploading the same ones to my SkyDrive (for higher resolution) and you can access them from there, mom, if you want to use them somewhere else. I can only email 6 photos at a time, so its faster to just upload as many as I want (at a time) to FB and then do a back-up to the SkyDrive (9 photos at a time, with high-res). So look for some photos hopefully on Tuesday or Wednesday. I'll be emailing you my address once I figure that stuff out and you guys can email me back or write me a letter or whatever you want to do.
Other than that, nothing else too exciting going on here. Still learning French and practicing it. It will start to improve once I get in country and what not. Glad to hear Dad's ankle is getting better really fast. I hope you are still taking care of my Macbook as well as I did. No scratches, please!
Yeah, just excited to get out of prison. Looking forward to some casual Fall golf with members maybe? IDK, we'll see :) Hopefully someone there likes to play golf. Its time to get out and do something fun.
Anyways, let me know if you want any other specific info before I go. Last time I will be able to use the computer will be Thursday or Friday. ;)
