Anyway, everything here is just as great as ever!  I think I am having a little too much fun here.  I am continuously laughing all the time, but I am trying to not be too annoying.  So fun!  I also think that I can finally post some pics!... Here they are...

Hi guys! Today we had class and I think all of us died because we all stayed up way late studying.  There were a lot of readings!  But it was super interesting so I am excited to learn about everything here.  Then after school they let us go into the city.  It was so much fun!  We actually went inside the Garden Tomb today. It was amazing!  I just tried to post some pictures, but it didn't really work... Maybe I just need to keep learning haha.. No worries, I will get the hang of it soon!  But I am having a great time with my two instant besties here... Natalie (Nat for short) and Melissa (Garry for short).  I think everyone else in the center hates us because we are kind of crazy together!  Like my crazy usual self times five!!  It's kind of awesome because we like thrive off of each other :)  One funny story... Yesterday when we were all about to go on a tour I went into their room to get them because they are roomies and we were really excited about visiting the city, so I started to sing "let's go fly a kite".... Then Garry joined in and she is probably three times as loud as me.  After we finished skipping down the hall to open the door we continued singing for about two seconds and immediately went silent because first of all we were late for the group departure, and second of all the whole group was silent as we were yelling/singing one of the most annoying songs ever.  hahahahaha we sort of died of embarrassment for a little while.  It's cool though.  We are trying to control ourselves one day at a time while having the time of our lives!!  Anyway, once I learn how to post those pics, I am sure that this blog will be more interesting :)  I love you all

Hello friends

We safely arrived in Jerusalem yesterday after sort of a long flight, but right after we got off the plane we drove to the BYU Jerusalem center and it was totally worth it!! There is no other place like Jerusalem!... Well at least that I have seen. Anyway, yesterday we were all pretty tired when we got here, but we just went along with the activities of the day and when we went to bed we were all snoring hard core. haha... Today was awesome because we went and took a tour of Jerusalem. We got to see the old city, the garden of gethsemane, and a lot of other important things that were quite amazing! I cannot wait for that to be a part of my life for the next there and a half months! I am having so much fun here with the new friends that I am making. Everyone is so nice and friendly here. I think I am going to love it. Anyway, more later. We are here safely and now I can start my experience here in Jerusalem :)T
