It's been a while since I added to this page, but things have been busy here the past couple of months. Now we are looking ahead to the last three weeks or so of our mission. We will be heading home in February and have so many things to manage before we leave. We are expecting a senior missionary couple to replace us with the Center for Young Adults, they will arrive in April so lots of paper work needs to be done so they can see at a glance what's been happening and what needs to be done each week. We know they will love the kids, we sure do. Then there is the flat to get ready for a final inspection, packing, sorting, giving away or donating to a charity shop. Lots of gifts to find a spot for as we head for home. We may need to buy an extra empty suitcase just to hold the souvenirs.

What are we doing today? I am paginating an old old book. A book of minutes from a local parish from 1754 to 1803. The pages are brown with age and quite grimy, the lettering has been done with a quill and ink; it too has a brown tint from the iron used to make it. This evening after work we'll go to institute. Last week we had 35 young people there, a great crowd. One group is studying the Book of Mormon and another group is studying the Doctrine and Covenents. We have such steady good kids. We are looking forward to a temple trip to Preston this weekend in conjunction with a Scottish YSA temple trip. Lucky us!

- JT and I have been living in Edinburgh Scotland since September 2009 serving as document preservation missionaries for our church. We will be here until February or March 2011. We work at the National Archives of Scotland. We of course miss our kids and grandkids but are happy for the chance to be here.
