1st mission picture
Well, we received this picture of Sis. Lee with Pres. and Sis. Hemingway of the New York Rochester Mission. Audrey and I think Erin's coat looks really good. This picture was taken on the very first camera in Western New York. Funny how George Eastman, founder of Kodak is from Rochester, I would have expected a sharper image. Oh well.
Oh, and another funny story - actually quite alarming. We were coming home from Alison's orchestra concert last night, Audrey was driving. We were just coming through a four way stop and two boys were goofing around and they were crouched behind a truck coming the other way through the 4 way stop. Just as Audrey started proceeding the one boy threw himself in front of the car. Of course Audrey totally hit him and he rolled into the ditch, jumped up and starting running. I was super mad, and I yelled out the window and had Audrey keep following him. The kids say when I get really upset my voice turns into a man voice. He wouldnt talk to us, but I came home and called the police. At first I wondered if it was a suicide attempt, but then I realized they were trying to be daring and funny or something. Audrey wasnt as shook up as me, it all happened so fast. Konrad was in the back with Alison and they didnt see him jump out like I did. Ridiculous kid. My only consolation is he was probably really, really sore when he woke up this morning. I have never met anyone that thought it was fun to jump in front of a moving car. Strange.
