Thursday we met with Ashley and she told us more good news. She's been talking to her parents more and her mom is actually going to fly out for her baptism! We started planning her program and she's super excited. Less than 2 weeks away!
She was so so so so happy - a smile was smeared across her face the whooooooole night. We got to meet her baby Zach (who turns a year on Sunday) and he actually received his baby blessing that night! It was pretty neat. We took her out for ice cream afterwards and she's the happiest in the whole world.
This week has gotten so much better since Monday. I think Heavenly Father is doing a pretty good job of helping me not be distracted by Derrick's accident. So I'm grateful for that! Saturday night we actually ate with Elder Starks' parents! I got a letter from him on Thursday I think and it made my day. At first I thought it was from Hadley because they have the exact same handwriting. Haha but it wasn't (Hadley, that's a sign you need to write me!). They took us to Chuck-a-rama and we ate and talked and had the best time. I like those people!
