I left after the reception and got to Aberdeen at Midnight Sunday morning and met Vickie at her house as she was just getting off work. I got to spend some time with Benders and Vickie on Sunday before heading home. By the time I got home I was very ready to get out of the car and burn some energy with my family!
I knew Janae was getting dangerously close to taller than me but she seems to have grown even more since Thanksgiving and I now, for the first time in my life, am a "little" sister!

I had one final today and work, after I got off of work I thawed what I could of the layer of ice on my car and headed to Seward for the Wissmann's Christmas concert! It was great to see everyone again! Seems like the younger ones have grown by leaps and bounds every time I see them! The concert was wonderful, the semester is over, and I enjoyed my evening immensely!

Time flies and I'm staying nice and busy! The real reason I'm posting right now is to let you all know that I have a gymnastics show tomorrow night for the half time of our Warriors' first home Basket Ball game. So if you could keep the gymnairs in your prayers, for safty and a good performance it would be greatly appreciated!
I wish you could all come but since you can't you can go to http://www.ucollege.edu/node/2177 and watch it on the internet if you'd like!! the game starts at 8:30 and we're at half time, it's all live so if you wanna see it don't be late!
Have a WONDERFUL weekend everybody!!

On Thursday afternoon The Dakota Adventist Academy bus rolled in with the Knights Volley Ball team ready for some action! I can't even tell you how EXCITED I was to see my team!! When I met them as soon as they got off the bus I couldn't gives hugs fast enough! I haven't seen most of them since graduation last spring and after living in the dorm with them you are basically family! Since I was the only senior on the VB team last year I felt like this was MY team! (and really it was!)
When I first got their schedule I realized that between class, gymnastics practice, and work I had conflicts for EVERY single game! There was no way I was about to miss their games so I put in a substitution request at work (I've tried to get people to work for me on Fridays before and it just isn't easy, everybody likes to start into their relaxing weekend as soon as possible). The next day in class before I even had a chance to bring up the fact that I wanted to go to a VB game during my college writing class on Friday the teacher announced that we would not be having class on Friday because we needed to work on something else with her at other times! Then I got to work and realized that my sub slip had already been filled and I was good to go!! GOD IS SO GOOD!! He LOVES to do things for us to make us happy! The DAA Knights pulled together as a team and made us proud!! I just wanted to be out there on the court with them but put all my excitement into cheering my heart out!! The Knights finished up last night with a 4 and 1 record! (that's 4 wins and 1 loss!) I can't even tell you how great that is!! The tournament champions, the 2nd place team, AND Dakota Adventist Academy shared a 3-way tie for the best record here at tournament, each of them only lost one game! Because of the way the tournament brackets were set up and the fact that we're from a small school therefore in the "lower bracket" we left last night with 5th place in the tournament! YAY KNIGHTS! I LOVE YOU!
Yesterday morning I ate breakfast in the cafe with the girls, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to sport my DAA clothes complete with Knights hoodie and VB sweatpants. I took the empty seat beside coach and after a few minutes one of the girls asked if the whole team was there. Coach took a head count and said yes. Then one of the girls seemed really confused and counted again, and again, and finally said, "no, we're still missing someone" I looked over at coach and asked if he had counted me and then with an embarrassed smile he was like, "....yep." I had a wonderful weekend with my girls and it couldn't have been a better weekend for me as far as homework, I didn't have anything due on Friday and I had already gotten my work for Monday done so I didn't have to think about school once while they were here! I simply enjoyed every minute with them. Yesterday Leanna and I got to take a long walk and chat about everything just like old times at DAA and after the tournament last night we decided that going to bed for the couple hours that were left before 4:00am when they headed out for ND wasn't even worth slepping. I figured I'd rather have a blast with them while they were here and sleep today when they weren't! I saw them off this morning and had prayer with them before they left, I absolutely love school here at Union but when the bus pulled away this morning I felt a little bit like I had just gotten left behind by MY SCHOOL.

The stay at home was short and made a little shorter due to the fact that I got sick Thursday morning litterally on the way home. Friday I got some homework done and played some indoor games with my sibblings because my 103.5 degree temp made me feel like staying inside was a good idea.
Sabbath after church we went up to Sunds for a shop party that evening and since I needed to catch my ride at the interstate (8 miles from Sunds) early the next morning I spent the night there and was on my way back to school Sunday morning.
This week has gone very well so far although I could ALWAYS get a little more sleep! :P We've been playing flag football competing between classes, tomorrow is the Championship! Will the FRESHMEN be able to pull it off!? Tomorrow the girls from DAA are comming for the Mid-America Union VB Tournament this weekend! I am SO EXCITED to see all my old classmates and teammates!! As for now I'm getting pretty excited to get some sleep! g'night!

First of all, thank you so much to all who prayed for the weather, it's been in the 50s before and after the race but God sent the sun out for us and although the water was a bit chilli it really wasn't that bad! After a few miles your body has a way of generating it's own heat!
I could go into details but they don't really matter, I had a great time (although I will admit I wasn't TOTALLY loving it durring the race) and it was a wonderful experience I'm proud to say I've had! My friend Brittany showed my up on the running leg and placed 3rd, I VERY HAPPY not to cross last came in 4th and Tyson took fourth for the guys.
Thanks again for all your thoughts and prayers!
Rachel and Mary came out to cheer us on! (Thanks so much guys!) after Tyson finished he came to find me on his bike and gave me some encouragment to help me finish! Thanks you guys! :)

Next we were off to Seward, NE for "Foundations of Freedom" I was so excited to see our dear friends the Wissmann Family and introduce them to my college friends.
The cast included over 30 people!
Musicals are always fun but when your friends are the actors it makes it even better!
