Day 3 in the Mission Office

Happy Thursday, March 21, 2013! Also known as day 3.

As you can plainly see, our house is a house of order, all 13x19 feet of it.
Definitely a snap to keep clean.

 Guess who met us at our car as we prepared to leave for the Mission Office? None other than Mr. Mr. Ichabod Crane, straight from his home in the swamp in our backyard.

Once he saw that I had my camera out he stood up nice and tall so I could get a picture of him in all his glory. I suspected all along that we may have entered the Wild Kingdom and now I know for sure.

 No, it's actually not our preparation day, however, I am proud to say that our calendar is beginning to fill up :) so we have to use our time wisely and get some of our chores done early to leave enough time for the important things.

We had our first dinner appointment tonight! The Elders assigned to the Young Single Adult (YSA)Ward were invited to dinner at the new YSA Relief Society President's apartment along with her roommate and her sister. Mission rules being what they are the Elders asked us to join them. The food, homemade vegetable wraps and noodles, was delicious and the discussion following lively and thought provoking. I really am loving this by the way.

We have another dinner appointment scheduled for tomorrow night, one on Saturday night and another on Sunday night so we are really feeling the southern hospitality here

Fun facts from Florida:

A sure way to tell if an alligator is inhabiting a particular pond is to see if there are ducks swimming nearby.  If you don't see a duck it means that the alligator ate them! Sad but true.

Most of the street names in the area are named after famous astronauts, who knew?

A town nearby by the name Kissimmee is not pronounced the way it looks. It's not Kiss me, it's Kezmee.  It you pronounced it wrong it's a sure sign you are an out of towner :)

It just gets better and better.

Elder Busath and I are feeling more confident each day as we learn our various responsibilities and the interaction we have had with the office staff and the young missionaries thus far has been priceless.

Thanks for stopping by to check on us.  We will keep you posted...
