Week 2 at the CCM

     Today we had the chance to exchange emails with Jesse a few times.  This is a collage of all the emails from today.
 October 3, 2013
     First off, the email last week I sent last week that said see you in 49 months, I meant to say 99 weeks. We did the math and my mission says that it ends on September 1, 2015
     Ya'll keep asking me about my companion so he lives in Sandy and he went to Brighton High.  He played football there.The other elders in my district are Elder C**** from Arkansas, Elder S**** from Farmington, Elder S****, Elder L**** and Elder M**** are all from Arizona and they all went to the same high school.  I don't know where Elder S**** is from. 
     I only go to the temple every other p day. The weather here has been really nice it hasn't rained here for 4 or 5 days. Before that it was a down pour everyday. There is talk that there is a hurricane that is supposed to reach us, but that might be just rummers.
     Lunch is some kind of beef or chicken and corn tortillas with beans and rice or noodles. Oh there is horchata and pink horchata. Yes, I have tried the horchata and the pink horchata and it is really nasty. The pink horchata was strawberry flavored. They are both nasty. No, I will never be a horchata drinker. They do have diffrent kinds of juice from pineapple to orange to mango. They are good drinks. That is re-fried beans on my plate and that is also the second best steak I have ever had (see the pictures below). The best one I had was last week. It was so juicy. It was like they had just cut it from the cow.  Then there are the taquitos. They are way good here and everyone freaks out when we have them. We pile our plate with like ten of them. I do miss your cooking though. I don't know if I have lost weight. I haven't weighed myself. I haven't been farting much but my companion does like every two minutess.  I bet I could hit Napoleon on a bike (Bart was teasing Jesse that his steak looked like the ones from Napoleon Dynamite and asked if he could hit Napoleon on his bike). Speaking about bikes, they have the Nacho Libre bikes here. They are not motor powered, but they are still Nacho bikes. 
     The language is kind of hard, but I'm learning well. Classes are like a normal Sunday School class, but the teacher talks all in Spanish. After class we either eat or work out or study depending on the time of day.
     On my p day, I wake up at 630 and go to breakfast somewhere in between 745 and 8. Then I emailed you guys. Then I did my laundry. We found a secret laundry that no one goes to. Then after I put our first load in I emailed again. After I change the laundry, I went back and emailed. We ate lunch and then we went to the gym and played volleyball. After that we played cage soccer (the field is inside a basketball court). Then I emailed, changed and emailed you right now. After this I will go to dinner and then go study until 930. Then we head back to the casa and go to bed and that is my day. How was yours?
      I have only ran once. It was my second day and we only ran 800 meeters around a track. The track is just red gravel. It was hard to run on but it was kind of cool. My companion and the rest of my district say that they like to run, but they also think basketball, vollyball and soccer are more fun. They are right it is more fun. We just dont have time durring the day and we are so tired. If we dont get up early, the showers get cold fast and we have to be in the class room by 7 for personal study. So we just don't have time. But Elder L**** has memorized the Ab Ripper X video and we do that every day. It is fun. Has mom seen any of my pictures yet?
      Dad, how is Grandma Bellows doing Are you guys really exited about the snow. Man it is weird not being able to talk to you guys all the time.     
     Tell Mikaela to push through the pain and tell her good luck. My companion just told me that Utah just got a Lego store. You should take taylor to that.
      I heard the team is doing great. I was looking through my camera and I found some pictures from cross and I miss that. Tell the team good luck.  I will be sending you some pictures later today. BTW could you try to get me Brayden's and Jesse's email so I can write them too.  I got an email from Emilee and Shanna. It is great to hear from new people. Have a great day. Tell Mikaela good luck at Park City. Oh and tell Taylor hi. Love you all.
     Oh one more thing, can you give me Grandma Petersen's email. I haven't heard from her yet and I don't have her email. So if you could do that I will love you more.
Love you all,

View outside my casa- random claw towers. We have no clue what they are.

A statue on top of a building outside the fence. I think that it is really funny.

The next two pictures are of my room. I sleep on the top bunk of the second picture.

The last two pictures are of a street in the campus and the side of one of the class room building.
