I am curious about lots of stuff but especially about history. I love to hear what happened in other lands and other times. I wonder if other people will ever be curious about me and my life. Maybe I will become a famous professor and people will want to read my blog posts to see what I was like as a child. I better keep writing because you never know.

I love every word you write Austin! I am VERY curious to know more about you and can’t wait to see what you will become. I hope you will still remember me when you are a famous professor!
Love, Sister Walthall

Austin, So nice to hear about some of your goals. My daughter Maddy wants to be a professor too. Maybe you two will teach at the same school.
I am so glad you are happy in Colorado. Yesterday I shared with a group of primary children the email you sent me about giving kids with special needs a job at church. Thank you for sharing that idea with me. I think you are helping many children already.
Love you, Sister Hunt

Austin, I think your place in history has been reserved. You are also an inspired writer and I love reading what you write about yourself. I especially liked what you wrote about your smile because that is what I first remember about you when you joined our family. I love you and hope you keep on trying to tell us your feelings.

Hi Austin, I am your Dads cousin. That makes me your cousin one generation removed. I wonder if we will ever have a chance to meet each other in this big old world. I live in Washington State and I don’t think I will ever get to make it all the way to Colorado. I am so glad you have joined the Jepson family and I love reading your blogs. I know a boy who is non verbal autistic and he is in my primary at church. He doesn’t come very often and sometimes he doesn’t want to go to class. I like your idea about giving him a job. Do you have any other idea’s for me that might help him want to come to primary?

Thanks for reading my blog and for your questions about your primary student. My suggestion is to give him lots of love and please understand that he can probably understand everything that you are saying. So, just keep teaching him the gospel and he will feel the spirit.
p.s. I found the ability to communicate after I was out of primary so my situation was a lot like his. My parents just did what they could to help me make church meaningful.
