Goodbye Summer

Summer is over and the school year has started.

The first day of the school year was absolutely fabulous. I have been blessed with a GREAT babysitting job with 2 kids i absolutely LOVE. And I'm enrolled in FANTASTIC Spanish class and I'm SO excited to be learning, listening, and speaking in Spanish again!!

I am PRAISING God that it went well, and I am hopeful that this year is going to be a great one.

If we had stayed with what I thought was the plan, I would be a freshman in college this year, since I was going to graduate a year early.

But God had other plans. And even now, less than a year after we decided for me to graduate at the usual time, I see that His plan was better.

This year will have some unique challenges and lessons, but I know that He has things to teach me.

I'm excited to learn and grow, both in school and in the knowledge of my Savior.

So on that note, goodbye summer. I learned many many things, discovered many things about myself, found out that I'm not a huge fan of working 5 days a week during summer break lol, and was presented with experiences that both grew and shook me, but it was good. The season of summer has gone, and it's time for a new season.

Just the other day I was thinking about you! It is great to hear your first day went well! Mine too! :) It must feel good to be using your spanish skills again, I know if you don't use them you loose them. Because mine are gone! I took a class in high school and one in college last summer, but I sure don't remember much. In fact I was trying to talk to this cute little spanish child at the park one day, but couldn't remember enough to get a conversation going. LOL! I hope everything goes well for you this year. It will be over before you know it. :)
