“6 Months, General Conference & Easter!!!”

    This was a crazy week, as usual.....  All of our Gators were out of town for spring break, so we knocked on a lot of doors!!!!! My knuckles are bloody! Jk Not really but they did hurt!

Tuesday, March 31:
"Sister Hunt broke her foot
April Fooling the Elders!"
Today we officially handed over the keys from our old apartment. It was kind of sad to see our free washer and dryer go away. We had dinner with Summer tonight. The girls are in Florida this week for Spring Break so we have no life without them. I am so excited for them to come home!  We saw Desirae and the Rugrats. It was Manuel's 7th Birthday, so it was fun to celebrate with him!!!! He's a cute kid!!! 

Wednesday, April 1:
Today I hit my 6 month mark!!! What the heck?!? How did that even happen? I swear I just got here!!! Transfers were also today.  I am so grateful that I don't have to participate in that this time around:) We went to Desirae's and talked about the temple and patriarchal blessings today. Then Mykea had us over for dinner. That was fun.
We pulled an April Fool’s joke on Elder Ford and Elder Fuller. I called them and told them that Sister Hunt broke her foot and we were in an Urgent Care. They were really concerned and totally bought it. (I guess I got good at prank calls when I was younger in the LCG!!!) We called them back 20 minutes later and said the doctor came in and confirmed that it was an April Fools Fracture!! Hahaha! They didn't get it for a minute and we were dying laughing!!! They were like I can't believe we fell for that, we should've known we would get punked by you two!!!! It was soo funny!!!!!
"Thunder & Lighting Storm!"
 I thought of Madie going into the MTC today.  I reflected on my first couple of days....hahaha. She will have so much fun, but she is going to be so tired!!!! 

Thursday, April 2:
"Bald Eagle"
Today we went and did a service project with Minneapolis City Service People. We took the snow fences off of Lake Calhoun. It was so pretty all thawed out!!!! I saw cute ducks and we saw a Bald Eagle flying over us. It was Awesome!!! Afterwards we all went to Arby's for lunch!!!!  We had dinner with the Wortley's which was really fun. We went contacting around the Lake but it wasn't as effective as we would've hoped.  But that's okay, it was worth a shot! Today was Brittany's birthday so we took her a little gift and sang her the best Happy Birthday song ever!
"Poor Sister Hunt!"

Friday, April 3:
Today was kind of a low key day, as both of us felt really sick for some reason? We took it easy for the first half of the day. Later in the day we saw Desirae.  After seeing her, we went to meet up with the Elders for a pass-off appointment. They ended up cancelling, so we went and taught Summer.

Saturday, April 4, 2015:
GENERAL CONFERENCE!!!!! I will send home a written letter with what I thought from each speaker... too much to type lol!!!!  We went to dinner with the Hermanas and Elder Ford and Fuller at T-bell, it was so fun! After that we went “knocking.”  We had some interesting experiences.  One was with a really creepy “high” and drunken to love the crazies!!!!

PS: Here are a couple of more details from Sister Young’s companion Sis. Hunt.  We wanted to share them as well.
"Lake Calhoun"
“Last Monday we spent the entire p-day with the sisters in our district and with President and Sister Forbes. We ate lunch at a place called The Nook. There was like 14 of us eating lunch. There were two young moms that liked us I guess. These two moms decided they wanted to pay for half our meal for everyone at our table. It was sweet of them. (Oh, and after we have a meal for zone conference we sing a hymn to say thank you to the people who made the food.) Sister Forbes decided that we should do that for those two ladies. So in this restaurant we sang “I am A Child of God” to say thank you. It was a little awkward at first but ended up being good. Some people thought we were weird but I think the two moms and their kids enjoyed it. The waiter also liked it.”

Photobomb by Elder Ford & Fuller!"
“President Rulon Stacey, of the mission presidency, got called to be an Area Seventy in conference. He is in our current ward so it was cool to hear a familiar name. It was pretty cool.”
