As for the mission it's going great

Hey Family.
Well, thanks for emailing me this week, you’re definitely doing much better than that other missionary’s family, you've only missed twice, but that doesn't mean you get to slack off. 

As for the camera situation, I'll see what I can do.  My camera is having a tough time focusing, so if you want to send me the Pentax that would be awesome.  I know you don't use it that often... jk.  But I'll go look into another camera.  I don’t know what’s up with mine.  Is it the majority of the pics?  If so, I’ll definitely need to look into a new one.   I'll also try and get more pictures.  I just don't really like doing it, you know me.  I like pictures of things, not people.  I don't know why though, I'll try and change that.  That way you can get rid of the bad and the ugly part.
As for the mission, it's going great.  Jesse's still doing alright, not progressing super fast or anything, but he's there and he's working towards it little by little.  Then there are the other three.  We haven't had an opportunity to meet for like 2.5 weeks.  It’s been pretty tough here recently.  Also Elder McDaniel and McMullin went home today, I'm definitely sad to see them leave as they were both great missionaries and I learned a lot from them both.  I am definitely planning to keep in touch with them.  They were pretty excited to go home and see their families again, but still worked hard and were just great.  But it's time to move on and just "Put [my] Shoulder to the Wheel."   To replace them we got Elder Hill and Elder Bartlett (the one who I lived with already for two cycles) also, Elder Hill is from Elder Hulmes home ward, which is pretty cool. 

But yeah, that’s about all the news I got for y’all this week.  I hope everything continues to go well.  Good luck with the advertising thing.  Till next week.
Love Carson.

P.S. That’s so awesome that Jared is planning on a mission I'll have to write him a letter and just get in contact with him.  Maybe he has an extra camera ;)

P.S.S. Just a second note since I have some more time.  Since you asked about rats, I am happy to report that we don't have any.  We work very hard to keep our place clean and clutter free.  Also, I've gained a little bit of weight.  I think like 10 pounds over the course of my mission and thankfully it's not fat! Yay!
As for the memory card, when I send it, it gets wiped in customs.  Remember the one I sent you last Christmas...?  You could definitely send me a hard copy of photography tips.  That might be help me to remember what I need to take pictures of.  I'll even post it on my wall to remind me every day... ;)  ha-ha.  Anyways, that’s about it for now once again hope all continues to go well.

Much Love, Carson
