Brandon played awesome in his first and second game! It was well deserved after a summer and fall camp of hard work! It's going to be an awesome season! He was also voted as a team captain and you can his picture is on the city busses!
We've been super busy with all of our family's missionaries! Bethany, my sister-in-law came home from her mission in Brazil a couple of weeks ago. Kenzie, my other sister in law, left for her mission to independence missouri last week, and Maddie, my other sister-in-law, is leaving in a month for her mission to Costa Rica! For Bethany's first day home, we made an Ogletree family spa and pampered her with a facial, mani/pedi, delicious refreshments, hair styling, massage and relaxing music for 18 months of hard work! It was so much to catch up with her and learn all about Brazil! She brought us all back delicious Brazilian candies and Brazilian soccer jerseys! That Sunday, Bethany gave a homecoming talk and Kenzie gave her farewell. Afterwards we had delicious mexican food with all of their friends and family! They both did amazing- such good examples to everyone! As we were dropping Kenzie off at the MTC, we ran into Hunter!! He was working as a host/escort to the new missionaries! He looked so good and was just glowing!! We were so lucky to see him because he left for Mexico just a week a later! His first area he's serving in is the poorest area of Veracruz!!! In his first letter he said that he's serving in this village up in the mountains where everyone lives in 2 room shacks and most people are very uneducated. He said you can't even knock doors, because they don't even have any!! You just kind of say hello into their open homes to start conversation! He's really excited to get work. In his first week, they've already had two baptisms! I can't wait to hear about all of his amazing experiences!!
I'm currently training for the Halloween Half marathon! Hopefully I actually do it though because I lost my running partner Brittany and it's not half as fun training alone! It sounds really fun though- everyone dresses up, so I think I might go as a yodeler! haha this was inspired by attending Swiss days a couple weeks ago! I'm still teaching English to Koreans and loving it! My students are the sweetest people! And now I have a country to talk about when all of my family talks about the places where they served their missions lol Well I'll stop there before I have to start dividing this into chapters!
