1st MTC letter

Dear Family,
Wed Mar. 27:
What a crazy day today has been! When I got here, they gave me my badges and all my books then I did an orientation.  After that, I went to my 1st Spanish class and the teacher only spoke in Spanish for like an hour! Crazy!  My companion, Elder Winward is so chill and awesome. We are very similar. After our Spanish class, we had a meeting with all the missionaries that came in today. We all sang a hymn about 4 times! Then came dinner. We ate chicken fried steak, it was alright but the cafeteria has just about everything! Then visitors came and pretended to be investigators and we got a chance to teach them! So far this has been so amazing and I am so happy!  But it seems like I have no time to do anything. I just need to settle in though.  I also saw Grandpa by my door waiting for me when I got here (his grandpa works at the MTC) and I also saw Braiden right when I got here! I'll send you a picture when I can. My companion knows zero Spanish. He didn't even know how to say the number 5 in Spanish, ha ha, but I guess it helps make me feel more confident. I'm doing great so far!
Thurs. Mar.28:
Today has kind of been a rough day but everyone is saying that today is one of the hardest. Spanish is hard but I know it'll come because I'm working so hard at it.  3 kids from my district got moved into the intermediate Spanish class so Elder Quiroz joined us in a trio. My P-day is on Wednesday.

I saw Ty today! He leaves in 2 weeks and he's gained weight, ha ha, gotta love him! I love you guys so much! Be happy and smile! I always have my ups and downs here but I need to stay focused.
I love you. He loves you.
See you soon.
Elder Smith
