Two days to go!

I am here in Salt Lake City with my awesome parents (my mom is typing this entry since I'm not allowed on the computer).  I don't report to the MTC until Wednesday at 12:45.  Today we went to Mr. Mac and I got a bunch of stuff.  We had Craig Sutton helping us and he was great!  An interesting side note is that Craig served with my Dad's mission president in Brazil.  After that we drove to Provo to eat at In and Out Burger and check out the location of the MTC.   My mom was upset because they are doing renovations and there was no MTC sign for me to stand by for a picture.  Moms get worked up about the silliest things.  After that we actually visited my dad's Mission President who lives in Orem (my dad went to Portugal).  We then went to Famous Dave's for supper - awesome ribs!  Now we are playing scrabble.  It's pretty rough not having my electronics.  I'm told it will be easier in the MTC because I will be so busy.   Oh, yeah, yesterday at the airport in Calgary we ran into a General Authority and his wife.  His name is Elder Zivic of the First Quorum of the Seventy.  They ended up sitting behind us on the plane as well.  When I was set apart as a missionary one of the counsellors in our stake Presidency, Pres. Laycock, told me I would see more General Authorities during the MTC portion of my mission than any other time in my life.  I guess I got a head start!  Well, it's almost 10:30 - bedtime.  Goodnight.
