Today's email was very short and sweet. Even though I am a little sad that I didn't get to email back and forth with Elder Parkinson today, seeing this email lets me know just how happy and anxiously engaged he is. I love being a missionary mom!
Elder Parkinson: Okay, well first, this is going to be short because we are going to catch a bus to go get sushi today at 10:50 so this email is going to be quick. The area is good. We found a kid named Alijando. He is really cool and loves meeting with us. My comp and I are doing great as well. I am sad to hear that Austin and BHS lost, but at least they made Sports Center, haha! I love the basketball state tournament. I am doing great out here and I did get the packages, so thank you. About school when I get back, I am still not completely sure where I want to go so I will keep praying about it so hopefully I can get an answer. I am loving it out here and am running short on time, so I just want you to know that I love you so much. I am sorry that this has to be so short. Next week I promise it will be very long. I love you so much and hope you have a great week.
Austin and the Bountiful Braves during the semifinal game of the state high school basketball tournament. They ended up getting beat by a half court shot at the buzzer. It was such a lucky shot, but it did make the ESPN Sports Center's #2 play that day.
