Vasa the word wiz

I like to include pictures in my blog but I'm not very good at reminding myself that my camera is collecting dust in disgust. So instead I will try to paint a picture with my words. Blah- haha, fat chance!
Today after church Vasa changed out of his Sunday clothes and was probably listening to his children's Russian music CD while in his room. You can always tell when Vasa's been listening to that CD because he begins to attempt to impress us with his foreign vocabulary. Case in point:
Vas walks upstairs after changing his clothes.
Me- How goes it Vasa?
Vasa- What? (Furrowed brow and squinty eyes)
Me- How goes it?
Vasa- Oh, you're speaking your Italian.
Me- What?
Vasa- your Italian.
Me- it's just a question Vasa so just answer it.
Vasa- хорошо
Me- Vasa, I'm speaking English so just answer the question naturally.
Vasa- Я сказал, что буду хорошим
Me- I'm glad you’re doing good.
Oh Vasa, you dear sweet boy.

Well, I have been home for a week and it feels like seven. But I love it! I love swimming every day, collecting skin cancer, jumping on the tramp with my nephews and nieces, arguing with my brothers, cleaning the cat litter, and taking my time. Do you remember what it feels like to take your time? To just say- I could rust through this, but I think I'll really make a difference and do this right. I forgot what that feels like but I'm relearning.

Sweet Justice- my own room

Well the spring semester at BYUI has come to an end and I am home again. I don't know if any of you realize this but Arizona is a little on the scorching hot side of the planet. I refuse to walk outside whilst the sun's out for fear the sun's stinging rays will suck all my H2O out of me. Not today heat rays! Actually, I really haven't been outside with the sun out since I got here- but it only noon of day one.

A lot has happened since my last post. Here are the 3 things I think most worth telling:
  • My computer broke down. RIP little guy, but why did you have to take my music files down with you? That was a little harsh.
  • I fell in a canal while canoeing at my Bishops house. I could say a lot on this or a little. So let me just say there was no good reason I fell in and I was highly embarrassed.
  • I finally went on a date! I'm going to keep this short as well and just tell you my favorite part: we read For the Strength of Youth before watching Cars. Blah, ha ha! Then- we discussed it! Really it was quite tender.
So now that I'm home I plan to exercise (I need to keep up with the standard Military Fitness set for me) do homework, be with family and stay awesome.
Katie if you happen to read this, don't worry I'm sending you the uncut version.
