Life is like a box of....

Howdy from the South of Jersey!!! This week has been pretty fun
again.... Again. Because every week on the mission is just a big
bundle of marigolds... So Fun.

Well this week I got to speak Spanish again on exchange... I learned
that AFTER I had said "Hola" to every person on the street, that it is
more common and casual to say "Buenas" instead. No wonder everyone
knew right away that I didn't speak Spanish when we talked to them...
They would immediately just turn and talk to my companion... Figures I
am Mexican and don't know these things... Thanks Dad. I did get to eat
from a delicious Taco Truck though! We got to taste a bite of cow
tongue... It wasn't as crazy as I thought it would be... And also some
SUPER spicy lamb meat.... I cried a little.

It feels SUPER crazy that I have almost been out for nine months...
almost halfway done... It's like when you are running the two mile,
and you get done with 8 laps... And you still have 8 to go... And it
is 800 degrees outside... And then the guy beside you passes you... I
am loving New Jersey! More warm weather is going to be nice. It has
been PERFECT all week long! Just a nice happy medium with a little

Anyways, sorry this is short, but I have some super fun pictures for
y'all!!! I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always. As long as
I'm living my baby you'll be... Farewell! ADIOS!
