No group email from hermanita Shepard this week. Argentina was celebrating a Holiday on Monday (their P-day) so pretty much everything was closed down, including the cyber cafes where they go to each week & email for the hour n 1/2, so this week they had less time since they had to use the computer @ their church building, & had to share some "computer time"
I will throw in a bit of our brief convo, the LDS.net server is STILL having issues, I suppose it's a good problem, I'm guessing it means that there are lot's of missionaries through out the world serving & since Mondays are their P-days, the server gets overloaded! BUT as a parent, it kinda stinks!
Anyway...here is a little of our email from this week:)
Rio:) HOLA hola is the email working today??? So I'm thinking of cutting my hair LOL...thoughts thoughts???
