Today is day 7 in the MTC! This place is great! We've had some days that are pretty hard but we have all loved being here! The last weekend was pretty hard because we were all struggling with how to best help out investigators. We have had 4 investigators. Jan and Patrick were investigators played by our teachers Sister Thompson and Brother Bennett. Then we had Erika and Catherine and they are both so great! We are still trying to figure out how to best teach each of them because they each have very specific needs. They are volunteers that come to the MTC and help us learn how to teach. So they are actors. We are pretty sure that Erika is a nonmember but Catherine we are not so sure about. But either way we need to treat it as if it were real. 

I was going to tell you about the pictures but I can't remember which one is which and I'm not able to look at them.. So I'll do my best to remember what they were. 
There is a picture of my district (a picture of my zone will come later) a picture of just the sisters in my district and a picture of my companion, Sister Hunt, and I.
I think there is a picture of my falling asleep at a desk.. That was a night that we had comp study for three and a half hours right before we went back to our residence to sleep and we were all pretty much brain dead. I can't remember what the other ones were but next week I will have an explanation for each one specifically. 
We are leaving for the temple in a few minutes so it's time for me to go!
I love you all and hope everyone is doing well!

PS-Some of the pictures got deleted last minute.  We'll hope that she can send them again next week.  I think they were too big for one email.  Stay tuned!!

I received a short note by email from Lainey tonight!  Just letting us know she's good:

Hi Mom! 
I'm alive! Dead tired. But alive! We only have a couple minutes to let you know we are are all okay and doing well so this will be short. We have P day on Tuesday so I will email then! Love you! Tell everyone I say hi and that I love them! Hope everyone is doing well and I will talk to you soon! Tell people to write me because I would love to get some emails or letters. Dear elder is great because I can read them before I email so I don't have to spend all my emailing time reading. So I would love it if people would do that!

Soon enough, the time has come to send our youngest child on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints.  What a wonderful young woman.  We are proud of her courage and commitment to the Lord.

On November 28th Lainey went to the temple to receiver her endowment.  What a special time to have with our daughter.  Grandma Inman was able to attend with us!
