September..... where did it go? I realized that I havn't posted in quite a long time and that my posts have centered around the theme of "home". If I'm not carful sombody might think I'm homsick or something! While I'd rather not call it that, I will admit that I miss my family, and everything that happens on our farm durring the month of September. School is going absolutly FANTASTIC, I keep very busy between School work, Work, Gymnastics, and just plain old fun. Yesterday we had our minitries club retreat out at woodland acres, it was a wonderful day, very inspiring and refreshing to have a relaxing Christ centered day out in a beautiful nook of His nature. (I even got a little tiny sun-burn!) :) I have some papers due, a test, and at least one presentation this week but I will be squeezing in as much "training" time as possible for next Sunday's tri-athalon. I decided to attempt the CABLE tri-athalon, I'm not expecting to be competitive, for me it will be a "try-athalon" I just want to do it! I've been doing my classroom observations for several weeks now and really enjoy my time watching the 1st graders in Mrs. Powells room, so far I am loving it and still feel the strong conviction that this is God's will for my life. God has been so good and I am thankful for everything He's done for me here at school these past 6 weeks includeing the amazing friends and my WONDERFUL roommate Mary! (in the picture) He's blessed me with! So that's an update from school here at Union College in Lincoln, NE. Sorry I packed a couple updates worth into one!

A "home fix"

Last night Tyson and I went to a farm just south of town for a barn party social, I got to meet up with a friend I made at Oshkosh who lives about 10 miles from where the party was, we got to take a hay-ride and roast marshmellows, it was a nice little taste of home!

This afternoon we went over to Lynn and LuAnn Davis' house and made Schdroodles and washed clothes, the food was yummy and our clothes are clean! It was nice to get a "home fix" this weekend! between a trip to the farm and some german food I think I'm set for another week at school! :)

A day at home

Today I got to ride along in the combine with mom and when I got home I got in on the end of "apple sauce making"!! Mindy, Janae, and Paul were in the process of making 8 gallons of crab apples into apple sauce! By this evening we had 16 jars of "better than store bought apple sauce" and a yummy meal of wild toastadas filled with garden goodies and fresh corn on the cob. I am so glad I got to come home this weekend! I miss out on so much of the fall festivities when I'm at school! Tormorrow I head back, it was great to be home!

Yesterday at 12:30 several of us were done with classes and decided to take advantage of the the long weekend and took off for home. Thursday was our last gymnastics tryout and the team was to be posted yesterday at 3:00pm. So I was in the car on the way home at 3:00 so I had Mandy and Brittany call me when they went down to check, I was holding me phone so excited and scared I could hardly take it!! Then they read me the list and... I MADE IT!! I'm a Union College Gymnair!! I'm so excited AND I'm HOME!! it's been a wonderful weekend already, it was so much fun to be home in Church and tonight we took a family horse ride!

So I just wanted to tell you all that I MADE IT!! (home and on the team!!)
I hope you all have a wonderful labor day weekend and don't do too much labor! ;)
