So champ has a new friend huh? i did get the picture. its been so long since i've seen a picture of Dutchess that i couldn't tell you the difference between Sydney and Dutchess. so is champ happy to have a new friend to play with or does he simply allow Sydney to be there? oh and it sounds like you were an answer to some ones prayer.
i'm glad to hear that they got the roof on right this time. it doesn't sound like it was way to much trouble to replace. something i've noticed out here is how many people have tin roofs. there are way more houses that have tin roofs out here than have shingles. it sound to me that you home Improvement projects are going well.
thank you for the box that you sent me with the two books in it.also i did activate my card on the first of July because that was the first p-day where i could do it. also i will be looking for the box in the mail in the next week or two.
there hasn't been a whole lot going on here, we've started trying to walk through the town of Darien trying to talk with people on the streets during the day.the hard part is that it tends to start raining quite randomly. i would say it tends to rain at some point just about everyday even if its only a light sprinkle every now and then. we have been able to find a couple of new people to talk with as we've gone around to different parts of town.
we don't have any different holidays per say. the only thing that has come up was a local holiday called the annual "burn down Darien day" where they do a reenactment of when Darien was burned down down during the civil war. the lds population out here still recognizes pioneer day but it isn't celebrated like it is in utah.
our transfer calls were last night and i'm not going anywhere for another 6 weeks. neither is elder Mcfarlane. still staying in Darien woohoo! the next transfer will happen in September some time.
i hope everything is going well at home and have fun on family vacation.
