out on our "veranda".
Of course we took them to the Mormon Battalion and got the official photo taken there. Cameron was able to be the star of the show and be the soldier! We make everyone play that game when they come to the Battalion with us. He was a good sport.
|Kami and Cameron - volleyball!|
|They found a Tiki pole and of course, had|
to get on top of it!
|Then of course, they had to jump|
off of it!
We only have two days left with the Trotters and then we are on our own. We really feel that it is time for them to let us see if we can do it by ourselves. They are tired and have worked so hard at making the office run smoothly that they are more than excited to be back home living a more normal life. But at the same time they are having a hard time turning things over and are sure we aren't trained well enough to do what they have been doing. They are probably right but we won't know what we don't know until we take over.
We had a wonderful experience in the temple on Tuesday night! Veronica, a lady that we have been helping and working with went to the temple for her temple endowment. Cameron and Kami went with us and were asked to be the witness couple. What a fun experience it was for me to be there as Veronica's escort and to have Cameron and Kami there as witnesses. There were many people from our ward there to support Veronica too. I had some sweet feelings as I sat there with all of those people that I love. It goes down as one of those miracles of missionary work!
We were able to teach our last two Institute classes Tuesday and Thursday mornings and are going to miss doing that. We are tired though and really couldn't keep them up with all that we have going on now so we are excited not to have to plan so much. We had our Scripture class for our ward on Wednesday night and that will keep going. But one class is easy compared to 6 each week!
We said good bye to Cameron and Kami Friday night. They left early Saturday morning - 5:30 am! So we hugged them that night and I sat in bed and missed them before they had actually gone home. What a great time we had!

Roger and I got home in the afternoon and sat down for a few minutes and both of us fell asleep! We didn't realize how tired we both were. We woke up in enough time to get ready to take our friends Vera and Charles to dinner. It was Vera's birthday this last week and this was the first time we could find to get together. We went to a wonderful little fish place on the harbor and had a great time. Charles asked us about Family History and wants to know if we can help him find out about his grandfather . That will be fun. I might need your help Judy. What do you know about Swiss research?
Well on to church and starting a new week. We are excited to try this office stuff by ourselves and see if we really know what we have been taught. Besides work each day we have ushering on Tuesday, a tour guide meeting and scripture class on Wednesday and our last meeting with our MLS group of missionaries on Friday. Three of them are going home this next month. We have enjoyed our little group and will miss them!
