Dear Grandpa and Grandma Hoopes,
since i turned 8 i have been going to cub scouts. i love it. i went to cub day camp. it waa so much fun. i made a bird house and a catipult. the catipult works real good. i also earned 2 belt loops. summer was short but fun. as you know we spent a while in arizona and utah. i had my birthday at our cousins and got some good presents.
last saturday i got baptized.
when i went into the font the water was hot. it felt good. i wanted to do again becausr it was so cool. i wish my dad would have messed up so i could get dunked again.
sis england made a ctr cake and cookies which were really cool. i still remember the blessing my dad gave after i recieved the holy ghost. he said that i could be a good example to my little brothers.
i also got a new set of scriptures wiith my name on it.
it came with a case and marking pencils. from the pictures my dad sent you can see my new suit. i like it. i can't forget to tell you about yesterdays sacrament meeting. i got to sit next to the bishop after i was introduced to the ward. since the 1st councilor was gone i sat on his right side. i got to operate the pulpit for rthe entire meeting. that was totally awsome.
