2. Transfer Day. Here are some of the pictures of the chaos on September 7th:
4. A quick trip to San Antonio- President Trayner and I were fortunate enough to drive to San Antonio for an Area Mission President's Seminar. We were able to attend the temple (beautiful stained glass!) and we learned a lot of great things in just three days. I wasn't real good about taking pictures. Here's one picture that I took when we took a stroll on the River Walk.
5. A mission tour with a General Authority and his wife. We were priviledged to have Elder Kent Richards and his wife Marcia come and tour the mission. In the three and a half days that they were here, we had two Zone Conferences (one in McAllen, the other in Corpus Christi), two Priesthood Training Meetings, a Leadership Training meeting for missionaries, and a Zone Leader's Conference. We learned a great deal from him and we hope that we're able to apply all that we learned into the mission.

Our wonderful Senior missionaries made a lunch for us during the tour. We thank them for the good food and fun!

6. Finally... during the last week of the month, we celebrated my birthday with a visit from our oldest son and his family. This was the first time that President Trayner has seen his only grandson. We had a great time together with trips to the beach, the zoo, and the Pulga (flea market). And don't worry- we can wear jeans and have P-Days too!

I know that this post is forever long, but there are just a few more pictures I want to share:
