I have seen the kids flying kites. Its gotten really windy this week, so there have been quite a few of them. The kids are freakin pros too. They can get the kites up super high. They're just these tiny little specks in the sky and what's more impressive is that to get them up there they have to thread the kites through a ton of dialectical wires and all that. I see kids quite a lot but most of them are pretty shy and don't really talk to us that much.
The Spanish is going well. I can understand pretty much everything and now just need to work on speaking up more. I don't have to pay to get packages. They go to the mission office and then the zone leaders get them through the pouch every week and give them to us at district meeting. We try to work with the branch members a lot but its hard because they're always working and can't leave with us which is frustrating but I guess they have to make a living.
I've tried some new foods I guess. We eat these things called papusas a lot which is pretty much two tortillas with cheese and beans or this stuff called chicharon in it. They're really good though. I had some pumpkin stuff the other day that was really good but other than that the food isn't that weird, Mostly rice, beans, and eggs. The dogs here don't really bother people so I haven't been chased and if they do get mean all you have to do is pretend to pick up a rock and they run for it.
This week we had a lot of first lessons. For some reason almost everyday of our schedule was completely empty, so we did a lot of tracting and found some new investigators so this week is looking better. The weekend was pretty rough because everyone was in the cemeteries so we couldn't leave with members and no one was home anyway so it didn't really matter. Dad, I pray a ton for every meal and in every lesson and before we leave and after we get back and before every study session so ya, its a ton. I love you guys all so much and hope you have an awesome month. Mom Happy Birthday. I sent you a birthday letter a couple weeks ago, hope it gets there. One weird thing about here is that they sing happy birthday in English. T
