New Zealand 4th of July.... It's Beginning to Look alot like Christmas

FAMILY! it's me you're favorite daughter who also is living in New Zealand, hey.

This week has been C-RAZY! I'm really excited for the 4th of july because they is a family in my ward and she's from the states so they put on this big celebration and invited us to come so i still get to have hot dogs and a bbq! we're just hoping it isn't raining because it's winter so that's weird.... 
story time: the weather is trippin me up because it's opposite so it's cold and wet and my body and brain keeps thinking it's christmas time, because it's winter. all week i've been bracing myself for christmas music when we walk into shops and such but it's not happening. and i've been subconsciously singing christmas music, it's been crazy. every time i start a song my comapnion just looks at me and says, "it's june sister" it's so funny! i was in the shower last night singing chestnuts roasting on an open fire and she yelled through the door "IT'S JUNE SISTER JUDD THERE ARE NO CHESTNUTS!" It was seriously so funny.  

anyway, we are teaching these three kids Nadia, Kases, and Llaiton and they are the best! their mum was baptized last year and they finally want to be baptized! we play rugby and basketball with them and have them say gospel principles before they shoot or run to a tri (pretty much like a touchdown but rugby words). they are such a fun bunch of kids. 

we also met another lady on chat this week! Her name is Molly and she's from Florida. we called her (that's how we do the teaching) and by the end of the lesson she was set for baptism!! she is solid and the spirit was so strong as we taught her! we're so excited to teach her even more and help her make covenants with our Heavenly Father. again, it's just so crazy to me that i get to teach people all over the world who wouldn't have received it unless they for some reason get on chat on and we talked to her. it's a freaking cool experience. 

as you can tell with the pictures we've been obsessed with our projects. we don't have a lot of free time so we knit during our meal breaks and before we go to bed. so the past couple days we've been getting back to our flat and the common phrase that is said is "let's plan so we can knit" it's a sad life. but it's fun bro! 

i love you all! stay safe as stooge drives you around everywhere ;)
