Your package didn't arrive before Easter, I'm sure that it will be at the apartment today after we go to buy groceries. I hope you don't feel bad about that, either, that isn't anything to stress about or have to apologize for. This was a special week for me, I was able to focus more of Jesus Christ, the way it's supposed to be. Did you by chance watch the "Because of Him" video the church released last week? If you haven't, I suggest that you do, it's pretty powerful. I shared it on my facebook page. I've seen it multiple times and I think it's amazing. The music to it comes to my mind every time I'm saying my nightly prayers, I even catch myself bobbing my head up and down, it's pretty catchy.
I was so happy to see that photo and you and Shane, it was like drinking a glass of cold water, I miss you both! That's great that Kalli's Grandparents were able to get you those tickets, they're great people, aren't they? I'm really happy that you had a good birthday this year, you definitely deserve it!
Yes, please, please, please send me those basketball shoes. I do need a few more things, too. I need some more socks, I brought just barely enough to get me by. Could you send me some more? I also need some more shirts, just normal t-shirts I can sleep in and play basketball in on p-days. The two Under Armor shirts I brought have developed a weird scent to them that I don't want to have to sleep in every night anymore. So socks, and t-shirts are the necessity, and if it's possible, another pair of gym shorts would be great. It gets so hot here and I can't sleep in my great flannel sleep pants anymore. I do have one pair of gym shorts, but when we play ball on p-days they get super smelly.
Could you put together a small photo album with photos of our family, too? I don't have any photos of any of you and I don't like that. Kalli sent me an album a few weeks ago and that's been really nice to have.
I'll be on again later today, too. So if you want I can write again then.
(Later) It would be easiest if you could just mail me those things. There isn't even a Wal-mart in my area, which was surprising for me to find out. The only place other Elder have bought clothes has been at the mall in Commerce, but that's a little out of the way and my companions are pretty set in their P-Day routine, so it'd just be easier for everyone (but you, sorry) if you could just mail the items to me. Just have Wyatt go through my stuff. He liked the Nike socks, and I love those, too. I don't even know how many, or where any of my t-shirts are. I just wore a lot of button up shirts while I was at home, and the shirt I worked out in I brought with me. I'm sure I could find something out here, though, if that's the best. I do need to be better with my money, though.
Mom, I love you!
