"Dinner with our ward mission leader - they are super cool! AND, first
experience with a selfie stick."
Hey Family,
So this week has been fun! I feel like I say that every week but it always is. It's hard to keep things straight like what happened this week and stuff. Time is just weird on the mission. I am glad you guys are all doing good. It sounded like across the board everyone was having a greeeat week... Preston you look dehydrated and mal nourished. Tell dad to take you to Fat Guys more often. I have actually been thinking a lot about about Fat Guys for some reason. I am gonna have to go there and get the Fat and Juicy like as soon as I get home. I remember when we were there with the Johnstones last year and we saw that super clutch last second touchdown run and we were all freaking out. 
This happened this week and was definitely worthy of a journal entry.

So Elder Dubbeld got his first cavity today! He has been pounding the candy super hard and he was sitting there eating oatmeal this morning and he just stopped and his eyes got all wide. He said his tooth hurt and it felt like a shock went through his mouth. Elder Archer and I look at each other and were just like... HE HAS A CAVITY!! Elder Dubbeld was just like "What is that, what is that?" We were dying laughing because we had been warning him about eating so much sugar and so much candy. He proceeded to start throwing away everything that he even thought could be sugary and unhealthy. Elder Archer came back from the bathroom into the study room and he was like "WHAT ARE YOU DOING???" He had thrown away like peanut butter and all of the stroopwaffles so we took it out of the trash and put the candy and stuff at the top of the closet.

We made some authentic Danish pancakes made by the real Duchman last Monday. They were really good! We ate them with our landlord. He is awesome and apparently most of my friends and family have talked to him. 

We had this really cool miracle the other day that showed me a reason why this transfer happened.  We were walking by a house and there was a Florida Gators flag. Elder Archer got super exited and wanted to stop by but we were on our way somewhere and couldn't stop. We went back by later and there was this sign on the door that said "children sleeping, no knocking, soliciting, ringing the doorbell" very clear... We knocked anyway just super quiet but that didn't work because four dogs ran up to the door and the window and were barking like crazy. We were about to just take off so we wouldn't get yelled at and then this lady walked up with this huge smile, put the dogs outside and opened the door. They let us right in and laughed about us being scared of the sign (they forgot to take it down). Elder Archer and the young couple just like instantly bonded over Florida and found out they used to live 30 min away from each other. We thought they were members, but then I asked and they said no but they have a bunch of friends who are members and they have prepared them a lot! We have their number and will more than likely be meeting with them sometime soon! I know that it was inspired to send Elder Archer here and that is just one reason that I can see. I know there are many more!

I love you all and I miss you because you are awesome.
