Yes, I'm going there

One of the exciting things about getting ready for a mission was getting ready to go to the temple, too. After all those years in Primary singing about it, the goals and values in Young Women, and those discussions in Relief Society where I didn't quite understand what the older sisters weren't quite saying... The Temple Prep classes were cool, but there's nothing that compares to the real thing!

Coming soon!

My Olympic pins are here! (Can you believe they're made in China?) We're just about ready for the Games to begin — I can't wait to see uri nara (our country) again!

There's a chill in the air

With the Winter Olympics coming up in a few days, people are asking me if Korea is cold. The answer is YES! In winter it can be downright FREEZING!!! Even colder than Rexburg! But don't worry — summer makes up for winter's chill by being swelteringly HOT. Well, warm and humid, anyway. Those are the perks of living on a peninsula!

I've never been as far north as Pyeongchang on the east coast, but the people who have been there tell me that it's very beautiful. They've made a lot of improvements to host the Olympics, just like they did when they had the Summer Games in 1988 (if anyone can remember that far back!). They are proud and excited to host the Olympics this year.
