Another week

Tracie wrote Kyle a letter letting him know that one of his best friends was back from his mission and that we would wait to go back to WA and let him have the "welcome home" at the airport. She also mentioned school shopping with the girls and about our ward Primary Talent show that she was in with the Primary Presidency. Oh and that we saw an odd purchase from a smoke shop in Orting that was on his bank account and his mom was freaking out about.

     Its super crazy that Jared is home!! those 2 years have flown by!! mine is flying by as well!! Its crazy to think that I've been out for 8 months already!!! holy cow!! That plan about a year later sounds like a good idea. Plus you would freeze here in November/December!! I would be fine and maybe dad but not you. School shopping fun times...not!!! Try this on try that on...dont miss it at all I'm trying to send home a video that's on my flash drive but its too big. The Sisters and Elder Brown and I did a lip sync for our ward talent show!! It was super funny!! I will try to find a way to send it :P We had glowsticks for ours as well, great minds think alike!!! and at the smoke shop I bought a zippo lighter because there is an object lesson that we do and you need a zippo, no need to be concerned. Things here in Orting are starting to pick up! We are going back to teach a 3 piece family tomorrow so hopefully everything works out! I will have more info on that later! Other than that we have just been doing service! I love and miss everyone!!

This past week Tracie asked Kyle several questions and clued him in on what has happened in our home the past week. Below is his response to her letter. Sorry if it doesn't make sense.


Sounds like a peaceful week at home :) dad can't wait to be "empty nesters". I'm gonna live with you guys for the rest of my life...just kidding. i cant believe Jared gets back this Thursday!!!  tell Jake that i make no promises to not be married before he gets back. :P its good to hear that your heart is doing good :P i think highland would be a good school for Kinlee :) i may have to disown her but oh well. why are you complaining about cleaning the church :P I've cleaned the church every Saturday for the past 5 weeks willingly by choice. :P  i actually brought my flash drive today so you will get some today!!!  and i hope my car is still there when i get back. along with my motorcycle ;)  this week has been pretty interesting. we had most of our investigators drop off the face of the planet. now we have to try and locate them this week, other than that things are pretty much the same here :) love and miss you :)

Below are some pictures that Kyle finally emailed home to us. We guess if you beg long enough he will finally listen.
Kyle and friends did a lip sync for a talent show.

These are some of the friends Kyle made in the WA-TAC mission.

     This week has been pretty legit!! we had an investigator of about a year ago text us and say that she wanted us to come teach her again!! super cool. and at church yesterday i had a guy in the ward come up to me and tell me he wanted to introduce me to a family. turns out this family wants the missionary lessons because the mom wants to be on a better path in life so i will have more info on that next week. im writing my response letters slowly but surely. i opened the federal way mission. all that means is i have new areas to go to. the fed-way mission is made of 2 zones from tacoma mission and 5 zones from the seattle mission. so im still in orting haha it was one of the areas that was sent to the new mission. Mt Rainier was freakin awesome!!! not even close to a desert here haha. I will send some pics soon i promise. love and miss ya!!!
