Happy Autumn! I guess it's going on Spring for you. I think I'm kind of jealous, I'm not really too excited for winter. So far, the weather has been great. Nice and cool in the evenings and mornings and just right during the day. (mom lies! its too hot during the day and too cold in the morning. evenings are good though) (its true I would know :) ) Olie! That little stink, sneaking in while I'm trying to make dinner. So how are things? How are you getting along with your new companion? Has he figured out the area yet? How are you doing with the language? Do you feel like you can communicate well yet? I can't wait to have you speak Portuguese when you get home! That is so totally awesome! So many people at church ask how you are doing. Bro and Sis Anderson said to tell you HI. Sis Herlin says Hi. She is so good to ask about you each week. Jimmy is home from the hospital now. He is doing well, but Connie says that he is supposed to exercise and she can't even get him to walk to the mail box. She was going to have the bishop come give him a blessing but she was going to have him do it out side so that Jimmy would at least go that far. I love those guys. There is a young lady in my institute class that served in the Port Alegre mission. That is the mission right next to yours. I talked to her for a few minutes and she said that she is so jealous. She asked if she could write to you. I of course said sure! She was going to get a letter to me to mail of to you, so you can expect a letter from a stranger named Nicole. It's neat the support that we get from people we don't even know but because we are engaged in a righteous cause, we are all on the same team! Institute is amazing. I am learning so much about the Book of Mormon, and the gospel for that matter. I really need to better on my personal studying though. I'm a slacker. I guess I should get up earlier in the morning but I just love the small amount of sleep I get. I know, I shouldn't whine. But the last two weeks have been nuts! I leave at 7 in the morning and don't get home until after 9 in the evening. I've had YW, class and choir after work and or school and then dad and I celebrated our 21 anniversary. I think this coming week shouldn't be as crazy. At least I sure hope not. So dad fixed a bike for Ulyssa to use and 10 minutes after she got on it, she biffed it big time! She has road rash from her ankle to her shoulder. It looks like it hurts so bad! I'll add some pictures. It's really gross! (Oh, the pic of the egg is because it was the vernal equinox and Sis Johnson called and left a message on the phone reminding us that we could stand an egg on it's end. So we did. Cool neighbors!) I talked to Sis Giles. Kevin is in the CTM for another 2 weeks and then he will be out in the field. You may run into him soon! That would be so cool. You kids could make a super duo! Love Mom!
Ireland loves her big brother on a mission! That's basically all I wanted to say! =] and you're the best!!
sorry Ireland but i love him more! :) not very much to say except that i totally biffed on that old red bike that we have! dad got the tubes fixed so it was rideable so i rode around the block and when i came back Oliver wanted to race so he went first and i timed him then it was my turn, as i was going really fast around the corner i hit the gutter too hard and it popped up and came out from under neath me and both me and the bike slid about 3 ft. on the gravel!! after lying there for a couple seconds i got up and rode the bike home! now i have rode burns all up my right side!! crazy huh??? well that's pretty much the most exciting news! um.. . .... ... I'm getting great grades which I'm very happy of/for! ? well i love ya lots hope your having a fantastic time!! love your favorite ulyssa zoe wilson! :)
The Dad wants to say a word or two about things in which the dad has a thing or two to say about that. Elder Elio!!! Sis. kay & Bro. Dale Labrum just asked about you. Sis Kay is soo excited every time we talk about you! Things are good here... worked has picked up. We are working pretty hard. Oliver & Ulyssa are now the cleaning crew, and though they asked for the job, they are whining about it now. I told them they NEED to do this, it will build character, heh, heh, heh. Mom's working a few more hours. We are going to put that in the 'Trip to pick up Eliott fund'. Church is good, the new YM President is cool, and knowledgeable. Trevor was ordained a Priest last week by Jake, and blessed the sacrament today....not sure exactly why, but it was awesome and I even got a little teary eyed. So....I'm in Bishopric meeting this morning and i look down to see a huge spider on the furnace. It looked like one of our jelly bean spiders, but very dark. It touched it and it ran into the furnace vent....so I guess he will visit again. We did night games a couple weeks ago, it was fun, but the sad part is I'm pretty much the quickest person there. The youth did a Geo-Caching thing last week and had a lot o fun. They all come out on Tuesdays, not many on Sundays. Home is also good, though we don't see much of Ireland like we used to. Ulyssa is getting good grades, Oliver is promising to get better grades, which he can. He has kind of let his hard classes get away from him. We now have a computer! We plan on taking on some theater animation projects, where we can use I, & U's talents. We been to the theater quite a bit, and plan to invite a bunch to come to SLCC's School House Rock musical to celebrate the mom's b-day. Xander just turned 3, Kaydence will be 1 soon. Chance looks pretty good in short hair, and wee bit of a goatee. We hope to stay with Cherie & Shaun in Coalville for conference. Love conference!!! Dinner.... ...okay that was good (and fast huh) baked potatoes, cheese, sour cream tomatoes & bacon. We are suppose to make desert while the girls are at choir. Oh, one more family thing... while at Xander's b-day party, Jared, Troy & I decided that at the Fuller Family Christmas party we are going to race pinewood derbies....that should be fun, and probably really irritate G-Ma Boop. Well, (deep) that's what dad want to say about that....and that all dad has to say about that thing in which, of which, here to for, dad will say about this....LovesYa!!!!
Hey Big Brother! =D he! I really just wanted to say hi and just to let you know I miss you but so proud of you for being on a mission I love you so much love Oliver
