Well, I made it

So this last week I finally finished the six week crash course at the Family History Library (Learning to Read Spanish Records). I must admit it was a bit difficult, but I took the course online and it took be about seven weeks to complete but i did and i got my certificate for turning in all the homework. I feel like I really accomplished something. This is so great at the Library and I'm learning alot. Everyone there is so encouraging and wonderful. I'm taking other classes as well. I have three levels of certification to complete before my time is up at the Library and I'm working hard to do it. It means going to the Library on my off days and going to classes. I really want to be able to help others who are doing research and so I'm learning as much as I can.

WOW! they're finally coming

I am sooooo excited, my Lisa and the family are coming to Utah. This sure is an answer to so many ofmy prayers. It's going to be good having them closer than Sacramento and I'm sure Mike's family here are just as excited to have them close again.

It's the pitts

So now the Salt Lake Temple is closed for two weeks and it's the pitts. I really miss going there. So I'm looking forward to going to the Library this week and hopefully I'm close to getting my first level certification completed.

I'm trying to decide what language I want to learn to read for my third level of certification cause the second level should go by fast. I'm thinking maybe French or German is what I'll try. The thing is that I'm not good at focusing on one certain thing till it's done, so the course I'm taking now ( Learning to read Spanish) is really tough for me, but I want to do it no matter how long it takes. I just need to know I can do it if I push myself. With everything I'm learning, I'll be able to teach others once my Mission is over, and that's my goal.
