I was so excited to find out on Sunday that we were going to play dodge ball on Wednesday for our activity. Wednesday came and I found out that my new cute branch is very serious about dodge ball and they play quite regularly. It was so much fun. Even the branch president and his counselors and two of the wives came and played. At first no one would throw the ball at me...I am the new girl. So I could be sneaky and get them out. Then Wally...one of the counselors (so intense and competitive, I love it) caught on and got everyone to gang up on me. I dodged 7 balls one right after another and the 8th one got my hand. I put my cat like reflexes to use. Everyone cheered for me as I was dodging them. It was quite exciting. Towards the end some of them were saying get the new girl...that will be my name until someone new comes. The Relief Society Pres and I were the only girls who came to play besides the wives. Then I saw her today at the gym and we worked out together...I think she might be my new best friend!! By the way my team went 5 and 2...pretty good. When we were all done the treat was a fat boy...big ole ice cream sandwich..it was like Christmas for all the boys they were so excited. Then Wally came up to me and said Welcome to Blackfoot..were all about dodge ball and fat boys. I thought they were all about potatoes, cow manure ( I live right by a cow auction) and trucks. I have never seen so many trucks in my life. Anyways I think I might turn into a professional dodge baller!!
