So last week, we found out that Kyler had been accepted to BYU! He has been asking every week for over a month now. He wants to go to BYU so bad!
So my email to him this week started out like this....
YOU GOT INTO BYU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is that the best news or what!!!! I will give you a few minutes to process it!
Ok, so now that you have had time to think about it...Can you believe it?
You are officially a COUGAR! Go BYU!
And then I waited and checked my email and waited some more for him to get on.
and then, I got this...
HEYYY!!!! I'M here!!! I'm literally toooo excited to type a huge email!!!
I bet you are! Can you believe it? :)
NOOOO!! I kind of think it's a joke!!!!! hahaha OH MY GOSH!!!!!
Kaydens uniforms are sooooooooooooo SICK!!! I'm so jealous!!!!!! and Wow! Buford Gymnastics! That's so cool!! Hows it going with that? and Manning!! :)
(I had sent him some pictures with my email)
Did you see where I sent you the email with the actual admissions letter?
Yeah! i just read it!! gosh I'm so excited!
I know its because I'm here in the mission giving it my all. I know the Lord has blessed me. I really don't deserve to go there!
Yes, you do deserve to go there. Your application was awesome! Lexi said that on some of the pages she had nothing. She got in because of her grades, you got in because of all the extra-curricular stuff. Service, volunteering, school involvement. So yes, you have been blessed because of your mission, but you also earned it!
haha wow! I'm so excited! So now what? Are you guys going to defer me?
(i think that's the right term)
I need to defer by May 1st. I have to let them know what semester you would like to start. Can you check with your pres and let me know what he says?
Yeah! i think we have interviews this month so I'll talk to him then.
Ok, sounds good! How was this week?
It was great! I got my new companion, Elder Ortiz! He's great! hey i got to go do something real quick but I'll get back on later! I have to take a sick elder home!! I'll be back to finish!!
(so he got back on a couple hours later)
How do you feel now that you have had time to think about it? Can you tell me more about how your week is been?
I feel awesome! I'm so excited. This week was great! i got my new comp! He's great! He's from Guatemala!We had a normal week! We have a bunch of people with baptismal dates! And about 8 of them are for the 15th! So be praying for that! Today and tomorrow is a holiday called Carnival! All the people in the streets have water and and it's basically a giant water fight!! We have to be in the house by 4pm today and tomorrow! But just walking the streets looks way fun!!
I've been hearing a lot about carnival on my mom's email group. It sounds like a lot of fun. But just remember to stay in and stay safe. I am so thrilled with all that you're doing and all that you are becoming. I am so happy for you being accepted to BYU. It will be a lot of fun and a lot of hard work! But I know that you are up for the task. Did you get a chance to chat with Lexi today?
I'm chatting with her right now. Yeah it will be whole lot of work, but I'm up for the challenge!
Hey Bud - I have like two minutes. I just want you to know I love you and am so very proud of you. I know we tell you that just about every week, but it's so true! We were so excited to see your acceptance letter to BYU. We need to start figuring out all of the details. Keep working hard and being obedient. The blessings come because of those two things. Until next week!
Love you bud - Dad
thanks dad! i too have to go. the blessings are real!! well I love you and I'll talk to you next week!!
How long has your companion been on his mission? And are you the senior companion at this point, or does that change?
He's been here for 4 months. yeah, I've been senior comp the whole mission, other than my training. Hey, I have to go. Have all your questions and details ready for next week so we can get talking about that! I love you all so much!!!
Goodbye! I love you more than you even know (and I know I tell you that alot!!!)
But, it's so true! We are all so very proud of you! Your hardwork is not going unnoticed! Your example is far reaching! I love you! Be safe!
Until next week!
Love - Mom
