hey mom! whats up?! well I'm sorry i didn't write home yesterday, some things came up and i wasn't able to write home. i got A.J.'s email! he's going to Florida?! that's so cool! i didn't think that all three of us would go to to the southern united states. this week was very interesting, some stuff happened this week that has never happened before. ill probably send home a letter talking about it, but other than that everything else was good. on Friday we went to a training meeting in hattiesburg. it was good. oh and in the picture if your wondering why i wasn't smiling, its not what you guys think. well i was standing next to bol (remember him?) and we both decided to do "serious faces" in the picture for fun, haha! so that's it nothing bad was happening, i was in a good mood, i was just doing a "serious face". this week and next week is going to be crazy! mardi gras is going on, and people are getting work and school off for it! I've never seen people celebrate mardi gras before! its pretty cool, last year in Vicksburg when mardi gras was going on it wasn't as cool, but down here people get all ready for it and stuff. so that's whats going on right now. thanks for the letter, ill talk to you next week, love ya bye!
