Three weeks today. Don't worry, I won't hurt myself playing volleyball. I'm not quite as intense as most of the other people. Hermana Lisiate is way into sports though, and she was so sad she couldn't play anymore! I just try to keep track of the elders that like to dive a lot or who will go for the ball without calling it. Our district is pretty good about not doing that, but some of the hungarian zone you've gotta watch out for. Elder Smeltzer really likes to dive, but it's really funny, in the dolphin show sense of the word.I am learnign how to overhand serve right now too. I can get it over the net (In bounds) aboiut 65% of the time, getting better though. Lorin: That's good voting went uneventfully, even though you were bored. Good to hear you cleaned your kitchen too. I miss having a kitchen actually. Keep up the awesome work, I know your companion will be good. If he's not you'll whip him in to shape. The Cambodian mission terminology is awesome. Te Amo! (I love you!) It's good to hear Joe got married. Oh, darn. I didn't get to do yard work all day with you. Your trip up the canyon sounds cool though, espescially the weasel. We have so many sparrows here you could probably support a population of weasels if they were feisty ones. That's about all the animal life there is here, though I did see one robin in the courtyard the day after it rained. When the Joseph Smith movie we were watching got out on Sunday Hermana Crowley and I just went and stood in the rain for ten minutes because we were in class the day before when it was raining really hard. Yes, I got the bank card and the pin number for it. I'm going to check the balance on it either tomorrow or the next day. The tape player is cool. Did you record the 'Sounds of Glory' cd on one of them? I asked if we had that CD in a letter but it was probably mushed in with a bunch of other stuff. Is that the CD with the 'hal-e-hal-eluia' song in it? I like that CD. I love getting the packages: the flag won for coolest thing mailed by family so far. Anyway, my time is almost up (<1 min) so I'm off for now. I'm drawing a letter up with the rest of the stuff in it for you and Lorin. Love you always!Hermana Erika Baird
