I GOT YOUR PACKAGE!! :) I received it last Friday. Thank you so much :) You're the greatest, I'll send a bigger, more detailed e-mail in a little bit...
Just wanted to say that I love you and I miss you! Things are getting a lot easier for me here at the MTC. President Sitterud (MTC President) writes letters to to all of the missionaries here in the MTC once a week. In his letter to me this week he thanked me for my wonderful example to the other missionaries and that he can see the desire to serve in my eyes when we talk, thought you'd might like to hear that! Also, this week all of the leadership positions were changed and I was called to be the District Leader in my district.
How's the blog coming along? I wish I could look at it, but I'm all about that COMPLETELY OBEDIENT way of life these days, if I'm not obedient to the smallest of rules, how can any of my leaders have faith in me to be obedient to the biggest of rules? That's how I'm looking at in anyway. It's a good attitude.
I got a short e-mail from Wyatt this week, I sent him a short one last week. He hasn't changed, haha he talked about stuff that wasn't even relevant to the e-mail that I sent him! All is well though, he's a busy man!
Birthday week for you! Keep an eye on the mailbox ;) I've got a surprise for you... I wasn't going to tell you about it but I don't know when it will get there and I wanted you to know that I didn't forget about your birthday! I've gotta get running pretty soon here. I'm staying around the MTC today so I may be able to hop back on in a few hours to send more stuff to you.
Hope to hear from you soon.
I love you Mom!

By the way... There is a senior couple here at the MTC who are keeping a blog on their time in Spain, there may be a few photos of me on there from time to time. I haven't seen it, but it's worth a try. Their blog is: http://thesullivansinspain.blogspot.com/
Mwwwwuahh! I love you! tell more people to send me letters por favor!
Haha! I'm online again but I probably have missed you by now. I LOL'd when I saw your message you sent me a few hours ago. We left the MTC and went to La Gavia, it's a mall here in Madrid that's pretty big. It was pretty cool, I got a few ties for €5. I'm trying to watch my funds, don't want to be unprepared for any unwarranted expenses that come my way. I bought a waterproof jacket for p-days though, there have been a couple of days when I've needed it so I went ahead and bought one even though I didn't want to spend the money. It was on sale for €20 at H&M so I bit the bullet and did it. Sorry.
I haven't exactly figured out how to check the balance of my MACU account from here yet, so please, each week would it be possible for you to send me how much is in that account? That'd help me so much. Word is that the best way to use funds here in to just pull money out of the ATM (Caja Madrid). Pretty please :)
Maybe you're still on, check your iPhone soon, I'll be on for the next little bit!
If you don't get this while I'm still online, just know that I love you! :)
