We have been here for 4 days now and are leaving to Bloomington, Indiana tomorrow. Missouri is like a forest and a jungle interlocked together, if you would have shown me pictures before I came here and asked me where it was I would have said Australia, we learned to shoot a bunch of different types of guns at Lynn's house, for hours we shot. Kaitlin was the best at the revolver, Cole the rifle, and I the 22. A competition was supposed to settle all the bickering at the end settled it all, we all chose our weapons and demonstrated out accuracy, I won... Of course. That's not all we have done, on June 28th we went into hannibal and climbed up to a lighthouse, came back down after sweating buckets to cool down, with icecream - highly recommend the huckleberry, you are in Mark Twains storybook anyway, how could you not, it we delicious! Beautiful, humid, and as I ran last night I noticed that I could go at least twice as long without losing my breath, 2 dogs chased after me but the little one was ferocious because I it's mighty bark. Anyway farewell Missouri, or as dad likes to call it misery, perhaps because of the Mosquitos or perhaps because of the longing for new travels into the unknown.
