2nd Week-Letter to youngest brothers

Youngest brother, I am doing great! The CCM is so awesome here. Guess what?  There are parrots here! WILD parrots that like hiding in the palm trees!  We don’t see them a lot but they are cool when we find them.  The parrots also like singing every day really loud.

My Spanish is really getting better, and I'm learning a lot.

I eat the food here.  They usually have two options every meal and I try to eat some of it. It doesn’t always taste great but it is all right. I really like the waffles we sometimes have for breakfast.

I also really like the Costco pizza that we are served every Tuesday night. MOM and Dad might die but I also like this roll bread with a thin layer of beans and cheese on it that they sometimes serve. We had quesadillas this morning

and every meal you can get cereal-pops, fruit loops or frosted flakes. They also have pan dulce or like sweet pastries every meal.
I knew the iPod that I gave you had games and I hope you like them. I really am sad I am going to miss the play you are in in December.  I hope you do super awesome in it and enjoy the Hebrew.  It is really cool knowing two languages.  Learn lots. I hope your poem is going well and I know it will be great. Maybe you can send it to me in an email?

Next youngest brother, I wake up at 6:30 every morning (4:30 your time). A normal day looks kind of like this, but every day is a little different.
7 a.m. we have breakfast
7:30-8:30 is personal study.
8:30-11 we have classes, like language, coaching, gospel fundamentals, or you teach a fake investigator.
11:30-noon we have companion study.
noon-1 is lunch
Then we study language for an hour.
2-3 we have gym time; I usually play beach volleyball.
3-3:30 we change clothes and get ready for the afternoon/evening events.
3:30 we have TALL (online language study [Technology-Assisted Language Learning]) for an hour.
Then we have companionship study from 4:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Then we (my companion and I) have daily planning for half an hour.
Dinner is at 5:30
6:15-9 or 9:15 we have classes (language, progressing investigator, fundamentals, etc.).

You are so lucky to see snow! It is pretty warm down here. I think you would like to try and catch these little white butterflies/moths that are all around down here. It rained a little down here one night, but not very much.  You are so lucky to have an iTouch now.  I do not get to play computer games. I miss you. (written 12/11/2013)
