Okay, so the blizzard last week was a little crazy but not nearly as bad as everyone made it seem! We still got grounded from our car though which was bummy but Sister Strong and I deep cleaned for a long time last Tuesday so that kept us busy. We also built a snowman! Later that night we were itching to get out of the house so we decided that we would be "real missionaries" and go walking out in the snow to some peoples' houses! It took us almost a half hour to get all bundled up haha but at least we stayed warm the whole night. The next day we decided to shovel Sister Broomfield's driveway for her and we literally were at it for over TWO HOURS because we only have one shovel so we had to take turns, plus it was super icy underneath. She ended up coming home while we were still there and she invited us inside for a lesson! She was so funny when she got out of the car and told us to be careful walking on the ice, "take baby steps and walk like a duck". Transfers were on Friday and my mom got moved to the young single adult ward. I'm going to miss her. :( Now I'm a MOM! It's crazy because I just got done with my twelve weeks of training and now I'm training another brand new sister. Sister Young! I love her so much already and we have a million things in common! It's a little scary because I still feel like I sometimes have no clue what I'm doing and now I have to be the one in charge. The fun thing is that the other Nebrasquad sisters are all training too! So at least we can all experience this new adventure together. :) We went to new sister orientation and had lunch at the Crandall's just like our first week which was way fun! Sister Young and I found a new investigator by finding out their little girl was in Girl Scouts! We taught the dad a little about the Restoration and eternal families. Then we bought some Samoas! The little girl was so cute because she explained how she takes her wagon around the neighborhood to sell the cookies and if someone isn't home they make sure to go back because it's not fair if everyone else has cookies and one person doesn't! I told her it's kind of like what we do as missionaries because the gospel makes people happy too just like cookies. :) Have a great week everybody! Eat a cookie! Love, Sister Irwin
This is from our district meeting last week. Just a bunch of goofballs!
