Hey family. I love you guys so much! Not much to tell from this week, it was the same as last week except that I have been improving a lot. Spanish is still suffering a bit but I'm honestly not even bothered by it. I know I will be able to speak the language soon. Every one tells me it doesn't really even come until the second month and not to worry and I've had a lot of comforting feelings that i will be fine.
I ate my first Chilean cookie! Look at the Chilean money! its so pretty! Some of the money here has an owl on it... I hate owls but it made me think how Tate loves owls so I hugged the money. Sounds super childish but it brought me comfort. 500 pesos is one dollar, so we like joke that we have 1000 pesos in our pocket at all times. It makes us feel wealthy. heehee
All I've eaten here is rice pasta and chicken.
It's been super great. I miss mommy's cooking but I've lost 8 pounds so holla at that!
I say words wrong and it ends up being a District joke! I was trying to say [what can you learn from this? but accidentally said '' what can you learn from bear'' this was a tender mercy because I was feeling a little flustered but with the laughing of my class and companion and help they showed me I felt so much happier.
I saw the moon for the first time in 2 weeks. I've been looking for it every night but it's so foggy here you rarely see it and last night me and Hermana Clearwater came out of our personal study session and stared at it for a good solid 5 minutes. I thought of you mommy!!
I saw pink flowers two days ago. Pink flowers are my favorite happy object.
These were only a few tender mercies that I wanted to share but through out the week I will be writing letters to you and taking pictures of the letters and sending them to you. I want to write back to all of your letters you wrote me last week so I'm going to take the time to do that now.
Here is a picture of Hermana Clearwater, Hermana Pederson and Hermana Albrechtsen ! I love this place. We may look like we goofed off a lot but that's only for about 10 to 15 minutes max each day. We work hard and its stressful but we make time to smile and make memories along our studies.
Love you all! Hermana Cook ♥
