WOW! WOW! WOW!
It has gone by so quickly!
We love getting his emails. He sounds just like the Trammell we know and love!
We loved talking to him on Christmas and Mothers' Day. His laugh is the same.
I sent a celebratory package, but trust me, I didn't send a cake or hats or anything that would make it an obvious, "look at me" celebration. Remember the birthday package that he gave away? He definitely does not like attention!!!
So what do you send if you can't send brownies and Martinellis?
I sent a new tie. He can get ties there for $2 but he says they all look like $2 ties.
I sent new white shirts. He said not to because he could get white shirts there but I bet they are like the ties!!!!!!
I thought about sending shoes because his shoes look like but shoes are $200 and that wasn't in my celebration budget. Besides, despite what these shoes look like, he says they are holding up great!
So I sent the shirts, tie, pics of the family, sour patch kids, starburst, Red Vines, Kool-Aid, Mac & Cheese, gravy mix crammed into a tiny box and shipped for the low, low price of $41.95. I sent it three weeks ago, so he should have it in his possession and could be sipping on Grape Kool-Aid as I type.
He's serving in Phnom Penh. He loves his companion. He loves the people, the mission president, the members. He loves everything.
Happy 1/2 way through your mission Tram!!!!!
