This week was amazing.
FIRST! MTE's were Friday/Saturday. I was honored to have gone on an
exchange with sister Wilson. She's one of those Sister Missionaries...

I have some pictures on my camera but alas... we didn't go to the
Library today. We ran to the temple with sister Wilson, Starr, and
Another full week of laughter! If your not having fun... you're doing it wrong.
Love, Sister Carlson
