Well it’s been a pretty good week. We had lots of lessons, extended

has another 5 year old and a 1 year old. Next is her husband! We’re
trying to land some time to meet with him so he can be united with his
family at church.

we’re doing our best and that’s all the Lord requires. Then I was able
to skype you guys! Sorry if I wasn’t able to answer all of your
question’s, I guess you’ll just have to ask them in person when I get

haha you’re right. It was kind of an off day until the last two holes.
On the last two I had a par 4 and par 3, Woohoo! That felt super good
after a long and disappointing day. It included a few cool putts from
I know most of this email you already knew but I guess it’s a good
overview in writing. Looking forward to this last week of the transfer
