First Days of Big Girl School

I'm an Ole Miss Student! :)
It's so much fun here. The atmosphere is amazing and most of the people I have met have been very nice. I do miss the family feeling that i left at ICC though. I'm making new friends everyday and for that I am thankful.
Aims and I are having a blast in our "house". We cook and clean and just have a ball. Last night we stayed up with 2 pretty cool guys and cooked cookies at 12:30. Oh, the joys of college. We were super tired this morning though.
I am liking all of my classes so far even though I can already tell, busy work here I come. I hope that this is the year that I find that special someone, get ready for my soon coming career, and learn to lean on God 100%.
Pray for us, and Oxford!
Peace

Well.. here we go.

Tomorrow I start big girl school. Ole Miss. I'm really scared/nervous excited. :)
Aims and I are at our house and I know that this is going to be fun. We have to go get groceries tomorrow or else we will starve! haha
My speech about Montana was presented tonight at church and it went really well. I talked for like an hour. I'm pretty sure I teared up a couple of times just thinking about Montana.
I've realized that I am growing up and that I have a lot of changes happening in my life. I sure hope that I am ready for this and I know that God is going to bless my time here, and now.
Ole Miss here I come...
Peace!

Never take anything for granted!

well, tomorrow Erika has her surgery. It has me thinking that I take WAYYY too much for granted. I know that I shouldn't, but it kinda just happens.
I am so glad that she is doing better, and that God is showing his hands through all of this. I know he has BIG plans for her somehow, someway.
I had a great day today. I now own season tickets for those amazing OLE MISS REBELS! Hotty Toddy!
I also went with Aims and Kyle to find our classes and to the BSU and we hung out with some people there. It was neat to meet some new people.
Life is good! :)
Come see us in Oxford. We have cable and internet now. Woo hoo!
God, Let me have an amazing time @ Ole Miss and honor you throughout the process!

One last one :)












Well. It's going to be my last blog in Montana! Wow! What a journey..

Here goes:



I have learned this summer how to depend on God for anything. He is there no matter what.



I know that God put me in Montana to show me that everyone is different and people aren't just like me. Boy, this was hard at first.

Look at that sunset. wow! :)




God wanted me to be completely sure and know that I am TRULY blessed.




I've learned that missions isn't always easy, but it's soo worth it.





I've also learned that people just need to be LOVED on and know that they are cared for by at least one person.




Little kids have my heart. :)




My family, friends,church family, are the absolute best!!!!




I am a true SouThern Belle- I miss it.




I have a heart for missions and I love traveling. God will use this some way- some how.




"Missions is the overflow of our delight in God because missions is the overflow of God's delight in being God." --John Piper



I'm really excited about going home. 2 days...


God knew exactly what he was doing every minute this summer and for that I am thankful.



I'm gonna miss these precious kids, awesome host families, and the beautiful scenery. God help me to always remember and thank you for my summer in Montana!



See ya'll soon!!!!!!

Just a few.. I have PLENTY!









Man. I'm going to miss those! :)



Isn't he precious!?

My last week as a summer missionary.. :)

Well. Here we are. Our last week in Montana! :) We are in Helena with Mallory and we are having fun. Playing catch phrase at this moment! haha. Maggie left us Friday and it was sweet, sad, and a good thing all rolled into one.

Radersburg was awesome and they treated us amazingly but I am so glad to be in civilization. Internet, and phone service= WOO HOO! We have the 3 year olds this week and they make me laugh. Tonight they were talking crazy. I LOVE them.

I have had an amazing summer in Montana and I know that I am going to miss it when I leave. I am super duper Excited about seeing Mom, mama, daddy, I guess Adam! :), having sweet tea, cracker barrel, fried chicken, and all that great stuff! :) Can't wait.

See ya'll soon!

Peace
