Happy One Year to Me!!!!

Well folks, it's happened. I have officially been on my mission for a year now. And I can't believe it at all. It seems like just yesterday that I was a brand new, scared-out-of-my-mind, missionary in the MTC and now I am on the downward slope. It just never ceases to amaze me.

This week was an interesting one. I don't know if it was stress or maybe a bug of some kind but Sister Sheehan and I both got sick with stomach problems. She was barfing. So I stayed up with her that night. I think that just contributed to me becoming sick as well... Who knows, but I'm fine now. Weird week. We're still trying to get this place figured out and all the people. Thankfully we have amazing ward missionaries and a great ward mission leader which is helping a great deal, especially as we get to know the area and the people. We have a lot of fun with them too which is great. So I'm happy about where I am and what I'm doing. It's hard and I definitely don't feel really comfortable in my surroundings but that is part of being a missionary and also being a brand new area, whitewashing. That's life.

So I don't really have a whole lot more to say so I figured I would send a bunch of photos since it's been forever and I know that you all care more about that anyway. Okay I love you all!
