|My last driving lesson with Stuart Ansell|
I passed my written theory test in January then started taking driving lessons before my practical test. I must say there is a lot more to getting a driver's license in the UK than in the States. I thought I might be able to get by without an instructor, but I learned new things with each lesson. There are so many things to remember. It's easy to get docked for things that may seem minor in the States. After I took my driver's test Friday, my examiner, a former policeman, said the British exam is the most challenging of any country in the world. I passed! I'm happy. Truth is, I think this experience will make me a much better driver when I return home next year. That's got to be a good thing.

Early last week, before my driving test, I was contacted by a reporter for the area newspaper. He wanted a reaction to the Book of Mormon Musical playing in London. I talked to him for a few minutes on the phone, then waited anxiously to see what he would report. When the article came out on Thursday, I was pleased to find out that he was honest and fair. The only inaccuracy was the overstated headline.

It rained again on Saturday, but we had a beautiful rainbow over the temple, which Pat captured by leaning out our kitchen window with the camera.
