The Laundry Room

I decided that I am going to write about a different topic or feature to share with everybody each week and today I am highlighting the laundry room.

Here it is:

What this shows is that our 2 washers are from America (thank goodness) but if we want to dry our clothes, we have to hang them on the line. Needless to say, I haven't done any laundry yet. If only my Mom were here to help me...

This is the other side of the laundry room. These things are big water containers. If a typhoon hits, we will have some water supply. Apparently the van that our school uses is called the "Brigham Young Language School Van" according to the boy in our group that speaks Chinese. If this is the case, then it only makes sense that we have water stored.

This picture shows what is outside of our laundry area. The laundry room has an open wall on it, making the area feel like it is outdoors. This is because this is where our laundry dries. If you notice the houses across the street, they all have rooms where they put their clotes in. That is what ours is like, only our room is a lot bigger (and nicer).

On a side note, today was our first Sunday at church. It was super cool going because we go to an English ward. Our missionaries serving in the ward are an older couple and they are from American Fork. It is so comforting to have somebody friendly from back home to talk to and they are really sweet. Mom and Dad, you should definitely think about going on a mission. Also, our branch president announced today that we don't have a primary and relief society president and that he wanted to meet with all of the teachers individually next week. Needless to say, before he has met with me, he has asked me if I would be in charge of primary for next sunday, but didn't extend the calling... It makes me just a little bit curios about my future. So, I have to arrange my first ever primary lesson, sharing time, and music because there are only 7 kids in the primary. Wish me luck.

Well - I know that this is sort of a short blog and I have so much more to say, but I am tired so there will be more next time.

Ya for teaching Primary! That's so fun! If you need any help let me know! I loved teaching Primary, which is why we were probably there for 2 years. Anywho, I have lots of fun websites you could go to if you need ideas!
Love you!

Yes, I totally need help. What is involved with sharing time? How does it work?
