- 3 weeks left; only 10 school days!!!!!!
Sun, May 11, 2008
Wow…the end is near, and it’s the strangest feeling ever. My emotions are a roller coaster as I think back to all the amazing things this year brought, and having the best class in the world that I fell in love with, while on the other hand knowing that I have an amazing summer to [...]
- it is finished
Wed, Apr 30, 2008
I don’t think it’s officially set in yet that I’m all done with college. Of course, I still have to walk across the stage in a ridiculous cap and gown and get my diploma, but that’s all that’s left of college for me. WEIRD! 6 months ago (or even 3) I don’t think that I [...]
- Fun in the sun!!!
Mon, Apr 21, 2008
Have I mentioned how much I love the weather here! My weekends are usually pretty crazy, but last weekend I decided to spend as much time outside as I could. So Saturday I took 5 kids to the pool, and I definitely felt like a mom…this guy came up to me and was like “You [...]
- “My practicum is officially finished!”
Mon, Apr 21, 2008
My practicum is officially finished. It’s such a weird feeling to know that it’s finished. 10 weeks ago I was scared out of my mind to know what would happen during practicum and now as I am thinking about all that happened in the past few months I’m simply amazed at everything that has happened [...]
- Ice Cream and Insects!!!
Tue, Apr 15, 2008
Only 27 more school days left, how crazy is that!!!! This year has gone so fast, and I feel like we have done soooo much. Every day one of my kids asks me how many more days until they are 2nd graders, and when I tell them that start whining, cause they want to stay [...]
- Last week…
Wed, Apr 9, 2008
Last week, we went to the Summer Palace. It is a Palace where the emperor would go in the summer. (Genius) It was the most beautiful day we had in China, the skies where clear, and the weather was warm. The Summer Palace is built around a lake and was a [...]
- this just in
Mon, Apr 7, 2008
this just in… Things are happening so fast I’m not sure I can keep up. Within the last week I have received a job offer from my agency and a possible offer for housing if I want to make the move down here in the fall. I’m really not sure about very many things right [...]
- facing transition
Tue, Apr 1, 2008
Three weeks left in my practicum and I’m starting to sense a whole lot of decisions that need to be made in the next few weeks and months. What’s going to happen after I leave here? Am I willing to move back? What will happen after graduation? How will the relationships I’ve made here hold [...]
- Retreat Weekend!
Sun, Mar 30, 2008
This weekend we had a ladies retreat here in Jos for any female serving in this area, and there were over 70 women who came! It was an amazing experience, and we had a ton of fun. There was a lady who flew in from Canada to help with everything and she brought 7 bags [...]
- Spring Break
Wed, Mar 26, 2008
WOW, what an amazing break!!!! I had so much fun just relaxing, swimming, and hanging out with friends. I went on a little 4 day excursion to Abuja and had a total out of Africa experience. I could have been in the Bahamas, swimming at the Hilton and eating amazing food. The best part was [...]

Sat, Mar 22, 2008
I finally found time to go on an adventure to search out a coffeeshop and find some great wireless internet. So, I can show you the long awaited pictures that I’ve taken so far. Obviously, I can’t post all of them and I haven’t actually taken as many as I should have but I’ll post [...]
- Incredibly Busy Week
Mon, Mar 17, 2008
This past week has been incredibly busy. I doubled my total amount of interpreting hours just in one week! Just this week I’ve interpreted or observed a number of different types of doctors/hospital visits, a few different schools and even an international convention. The convention was the most intense because it consisted of over 15,000 [...]

We just finished a unit on Kites and Wind, so today we tested out the kites we made on the soccer field! Last Friday we had our elementary field day, and it was a blast. We start meeting with our teams at the beginning of the year and every student looks forward to it from [...]
- “What happened to love?”
Thu, Mar 6, 2008
A few weeks ago I had the words to this song running through my head: “Use me here, where I am. I’m not gonna pray anymore that you’ll change your plans despite my fear I place me life in your hands. The future can wait, tomorrow might be too late, Jesus, use me here.” It [...]
- All around the world…
Tue, Mar 4, 2008
Sorry it has been so long since my last post. I have been traveling around three countries and am now in Beijing, China! Almost three weeks ago we left BCNZ. The last few days at the college were pretty stressful. We had to have everything done for our ministry class, we had our last two [...]
- End of Week Two
Tue, Feb 26, 2008
End of week two: Week two had a lot more chances to actually get my hands up than week one did. All of the experiences have been adventurous and I’ve learned a few things this week: Always have a book for when assignments are boring and you don’t need to interpret, having jumper cables in [...]

- A trip to the hospital!
Sun, Feb 17, 2008
The past couple weeks we have been learning about the body, and last week we studied the skeleton and organs, so I thought it would be cool to take my kids to see the radiology department at the hospital! We went on Friday afternoon, and it was so awesome! My kids absolutely [...]
