Aberystwyth is the smallest town I have ever lived in. And not only is it a very small town, like 25,000 people including 10,000 students, but there are no big towns anywhere nearby. In fact, Aberystwyth is the largest town in the area. Because the town is so small, the church here is really small. Our branch meets in a school, and has about 30-45 people who come regularly. That number is including us and the two families of 6 that moved in the same time as us. Even though the branch is really small, the Relief Society sisters get together every wednesday for enrichment. Everyone brings what every they are working on, or just come to chat. So, the old ladies that are in the branch have been attempting to teach me to knit. Today I finish my first project, a little white hat for Anya- I started this hat while I was in Ottawa with Adam's aunt Karen, but I needed alot more help to get it finished. But she sure looks super cute in it. Next I am going to make a little hooded sweatshirt for her. By the way, whie I have been writing this post, Anya has been laying on the floor in front of me and she has completely turned herself in a 360 degree circle and just rolled from her back to her tummy- yea! That was a first.
