Parent Letter: Going to Temple

Mon 3/09/09 10:33 AM

Hi Flora!

Hope you are having a fun PDay and getting some rest and relaxation. Do you go to the temple on your PDay or is that on a different day? I really hope that you like the MTC. I know there are a lot of rules and schedules and everything, but if you don't stress too much about it, it is an awesome place to be. I have many fond memories of my time there, and I made lots of friends.

I am always surprised by how much the members of our ward ask about you. I didn't know they had gotten to know you so well when you were here, but so many of them ask about you by name, every week. (or maybe they are just looking at that plaque up on the wall by the Bishop's office? idk) I'm sure you know by now that Lindsey Shurtliff is going on a mission. As far as I know, she doesn't have her call yet, but I will let you know when she gets it.

There is a lot of drama going on in our ward, Kelsey is living at the Stubbs' house during the week, and basically at our house on the weekends. The bishop's son (the inactive one) got a HUGE tattoo of a Catholic cross on his back. And the mom is completely freaked out about it. And other dumb stuff like that, I can't remember it all. But Desi is always buzzing about what happened, every time she goes to an activity. This morning I substitute taught for Seminary. I enjoyed it. I miss not being the Seminary teacher. It was a lot of fun, and that class is awesome. Everyone can actually read the scriptures, which makes it very nice. And they are all pretty smart.

The weather is so beautiful here. It is really getting to be Spring. I need to get a garden started. And I REALLY need to work on my lawn. I hope it is getting nicer in Provo for you. It has been a long winter. Has your coat been keeping you warm?/

This coming weekend I am going to meet 3 of my Sunstone friends in Georgia and stay in a cabin. It should be a fun getaway for me. I am looking forward to it. At least it will get me away from the computer and into real life, right? Also, I went out to lunch with real people twice this last month. So you would be proud of me, I guess. So tell me what you have been studying in your scriptures.

Love you,
Mom
