happy

I'm doing good! Really good actually. I feel like I'm getting more used to doing things on my own. And I'm making lots of friends. Our ward here is amazing. Everyone is so nice. There are a few women that have really been so kind to me when I felt all alone. One is our cleaning lady. I love her so much! She's in our ward too. And I feel like my Spanish is getting a little better. OR I'm just feeling a little more comfortable looking stupid.
Yesterday, we were at Costco and it was past Graham's nap time and he kind of lost it. He was running away from me, yelling, screaming, laying on the floor in the check outline, being so, so crazy. Everyone usually looks at us in Costco because we have so many little kids and they are pretty cute, but today they were all starting at us for a different reason. haha An American guy came up to me and said, "I know it seems really hard right now but someday it will all be worth it." Isn't that so nice? At the time I was like "maybe you should take him and see if it's worth it."But thinking about it today I think that is a really sweet thing to tell a mom.
And I guess that is what my experience here is Mexico is all about too. When I'm just focused on the daily hard things, it's going to seem really hard! But if I can keep an eternal perspective it really will be worth it.
Our stake president challenged us to go to the temple once a week. We are trying to make that happen. I know it will bless our family. I went for the first time last week. I used headphones for a translation in English. It was pretty cool. The Guadalaraja Temple is beautiful!

My family is coming in 21 days!!!!!! I'm so excited!
