I am so excited to leave, and to have at least a LITTLE more freedom, but terrified nonetheless!
Jessica was right, I will not be flying in a big airplane to Ecuador. I take a big normal airplane to Bogota Columbia, and then get on a little baby plane to fly into Guayaquil... hahaha... so ya. That is a little bit of scary news. Dont worry though, I will just strap myself on to the hay bale and sit next to some goats and chickens. Haha just kidding I dont think it will be THAT bad... but it will be pretty weird.
Also, now mom... Dont get your hopes up... but I MIGHT be able to call you from the airport! The deal is though its going to be pretty hard to tell you when.. haha I leave here at 10:00 at night and my flight from Mexico leaves at 2:15 in the morning... I might call you from Mexico (most likely) or I might call in between flights, but I might not have time to during my layover. The problem is though I don't know how any of it works and they dont really tell you anything about it.. so please PRETTY please don't get your hopes up! I gotta figure out money stuff and time stuff still but I hope I can call you before 2:00 in the morning if that's okay lol
Fourth of July here was funny! All the Americans wore red white and blue and during lunch we walked in and the cooks had put out red white and blue table cloths! It was seriously the cutest thing ever, They made BBQ chicken and french fries and corn on the Cobb and some apple pie! They even had someone lead us in the national anthem. It was the cutest thing ever, it made me all teary eyed because they said "Even though you are far from home and families we wanted to surprise you with this little piece of home" It was so nice.
Yesterday was pretty cool because me and my companion were hostesses for all the new missionary so we wore a funny hostess badge thingy and helped missionaries check-in, go through orientation, and find there houses and companions. It made me feel so old haha I cant believe I have been here for six weeks already, my time is up! I feel so nervous.
I feel ready to leave but not ready to go... if that makes sense my spanish isn't ANYWHERE as close as I wish it was and I am just sad to leave my companion and my roommates. They are like family to me.
okay haha... so funny story here. This girl from Hawaii had SUPER long hair, and wanted to get it cut to a super short a-line and heard that my companion cuts hair, so she asked if she´d do it. We were all just hanging out talking and chatting on pday and she comes over to get her hair done and Hna Hobbs says she is gonna just put it in a ponytail and chop off the big hunk of length so I was all "OMGSH CAN I DO IT?" and the girl is super chill so she is like sure I dont care... she knew that I had never done it before... but was totally okay with it! (brave girl) haha so yup. Thats what I did today.. I chopped off this girls ponytail! Jess would be proud! Obviously afterwards Hna Hobbs did the rest and made it all pretty and such... Just thought Id share. haha It was so much fun!

I will be on again at about 5:30 to answer questions about flight plans! Bye!
