Kyle's sister Lindsay here. Kyle, oh wait...Elder Knudsen...has asked me to keep a blog for him while he is gone. This way, he can communicate with friends and family everywhere. Remember when missionaries actually had to use a pen and paper!? :) Anyway, I will be posting pictures, letters, e-mails etc. that he sends to our family over the next two years. I hope you enjoy!
April 4, 2012, Kyle entered the MTC. We decided to have a big breakfast together as a family one last time. We went to Mimi's Cafe in Murray. Of course, Kyle tried convincing everyone in the family to have the Cinnamon Brioche French Toast with lemon creme and berries on top. Most of us agreed to it. Anyway, while waiting for our food, our waitress (who had a very thick Southern accent) was admiring Kyle's niece Oaklee. Mom asked her where she was from, and low and behold...where do you think she was from? KENTUCKY! What a small world.
Kyle immediately spoke up and explained that he will be serving a 2-year LDS mission there. She told him how beautiful the country is there and how genuinely nice the people are. She said they're quite quirky, but nice nonetheless. Her accent was so thick (and she was quite "quirky" herself) Kyle just kept giggling when she's walk away. He'd just shake his head, laugh and say how he couldn't wait to get to Kentucky.

I apologize for the pictures. I was trying to take them from inside the car!
