Nightly Skype Section with Kami

    Tomorrow marks 2 weeks that i have been out in my new life. I feel like i have Been Here FOREVER, but yet i cant believe its already been 2 weeks! I feel like i am ALWAYS busy! If I'm not working, than i am at a YSA activity, Institute, FHE, Skyping with Maddy Cody kami my mom, or sleeping. I feel like I'm so busy that i don't let myself get home sick. Although nights are the hardest. Realising i am all alone makes me miss My family and my friends so so much...but like i said i cant think about that! Summit New Jersey is seriously SO beautiful, and i absolutely love the family i am Nanny-ing / living with. John and Brenda are so sweet and so willing to help and do anything for me. They have 5 crazy loud and loving kids, Sean -11, Marry Kelly -10, Will -8, Margaret -4, and Brian -2. I already am feeling so welcome and at home! There is a tight knit group of girls that are all nannies Here in new Jersey, and we all go to the same ward. The second day i was here i went to church and they were all so welcoming. I really did have friends instantly. 3 days after i got here it was 9-11. Me and the girls went to Liberty Park, in Jersey City and got to look out across the water and see the hole city from a distance. It was honestly the most beautiful thing i think i have ever seen. They had two Lights shinning up from the exact spots where the twin towers had stood. The memorial that has been built for all the New Jersey people that had been killed was so amazing to see. Last weekend there was a YSA conference that was in New York City. I got to see a little bit of Central park, The Trump Tower, And then we went to Time Square. AMAZING. that's seriously all i can say about the city. I LOVE my ward! Its crazy that there are so many different types of people, and yet we are all there cause we love the Gospel. Everyone has been SO warm and loving. The conference was so wonderful, and I met so many great people. Tomorrow i Venture into NEW YORK again, with Danielle and Angie.. They have already become two of my great friends, and honestly i would be SO lost with out them.. Literally. I would be lost. Danielle picks me up and takes me to like everything cause i still don't know where i am half the time. ha ha Anyways, I am alive! Sorry if i have been distant to some, i am very busy! But i love you!! I miss my family and friends more than i can even express, but I'm having such an amazing adventure!!!
