I lived through my first transfer!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          haha jk. All is great in Kaunas. It has been freaking hot. It has getting up to 36 plus humidity. I'm just loving coming home feeling like I have ran through a thick mist machine. lol It rained really hard last night and it made me happy but now it's way hot again. Sister K, the sister missionaries, Elder Hatch, and I went and played tennis today. They all left after about an hour but Elder Hatch and I kept playing for 2 more hours. It was awesome. They were clay courts so I was loving it. :D Now I got a nice tan on my arms and my legs lol.
       Before I forget, on the blog, you can just say send packages to the mission home but letters send to whatever address I say I'm at. I read it and It was kinda confusing and sounded very complicated on how and when to send letters. I haven't gotten any mail except from you so I would rather have them send their letters then not at all. I'm pretty posititve I will be staying in Kaunas. We don't get our transfer call til tomorrow. But they can send letters in normal letter things but all that info, doesn't really apply here. If I transfer and letters come, the elders just bring it to zone conference. It happens all the time. Plust it takes a while sometimes to get here so I would rather have peole send a letter. It's kinda sad opening the mail box everyday and nothing is there. lol.
        But ya this transfer is Elder Hatch's last transfer. I can tell he is gettting really excited to get home. He has been teaching me some cool russian phrases lol. So I'm beginning my Russian learning. lol. My language is still improving. lol We went on splits on thursday and I went with Elder Wicker. We had such a grand ol time. He has only been out for 2 transfers. We taught someone and the guy we taught thankfully understood we didn't speak a lot of Lithuanian. But I talk to people on my own a lot and am able to teach more too. I have placed a few book of mormons.
       I love the huge story from the YM camps. I do miss camping. I also greatly miss gatorade and powerade. All the time I want one so badly cause those quench my thirst and they are o so good. All they have here is water, sprite, pepsi, coca-cola, and million brands of alcohol and vodka. So not much to drink. haha. I miss variety in drinks at gas stations. But ya i love the stories. That knee part didn't sound too fun. ouch. Don't become crippled before i come home. We still got to play more tennis.
       But nothing too exciting has happened. We went harvesting in a way cool dome and it was so cool on the inside. It was a huge hallway on each floor with doors lining on either side. It was pich black except for a creepy old light bulb hanging at the end of the hallway. It was awesome. I was like, " oh ya, we are in the crazies place." Elder hatch said, " your catching on" haha. We met the nicest people. lol. Well we still met crazy people. But we got 4 numbers. It was awesome. lol I talked to a teenage girl who was only in a towel and was way flirty. haha......akward.... he he anyways. But ya so I learned to never judge a building. I also learned if a building looks creepy, try it, pray they are nice people, if there aren't nice people, your going to have a fun time. lol I will explain that when my mission is over. haha. Oh the stories I have. I love it here!!!!!! My life was so boring and simple and so not as exciting and crazy as it is now. I don't know how I will be able to live with myself after this crazy time and with all the crazy... adventures. lol. I'm sure I will find a way though.
        Lol i'm in a weird mood. The heat causes a problem to my head. But yes all is well here. I''m safe, for now, hahah jk. The heat sometimes feels like the only threat to me. The sun taunts me everyday.
        tonight we are teaching FHE. That will be fun. I'm excited cause we play ultimate frisbee after. ya more running!
          I can't wait to hear more from home and to get more pics. I showed the pics to our english class and they all said that mom was very pretty. I told them I would tell my mom. :D Lithuanians love seeing pics of America. So send tons, like family, church members, our house, what not. Plus I want to see them. Take a pic of my room and what not too. I miss seeing
           Ok now i'm done emailing, I get so distracted lol.
