4 Days!

We leave in 4 days... 7 hours... and 30 minutes. :) But who's counting??

VBS in America started today. I am in the movie room with Brenda and mi madre. It's fun but I kind of miss being a guide :( Brenda told me this morning that she was glad she wasn't in all the chaos that was going on before the opening part started. It was nuts out there, but I like that. Oh well. I will be a guide next year then I guess... unless we are leaving for Haiti the Saturday after Bible School gets done. Then I will not be a guide. Too much stress :)

Oh and we had homegroups yesterday... and we figured out that me and my mom are seeing Brenda for 15 or 16 days straight. Yikes. Just kidding. We love her :) So that should be a lot of fun. But I don't have to sit next to her on the plane, I sit next to Anna. YAY

I'm not sure how much I'm going to be updating for the next couple of weeks, cuz of Bible School and Haiti and everything. I will try to update in Haiti at least once, but that's only if the internet is cooperating.

When we get back I will definitely post about it. No worries ;)

"Jam Session"

Or so Aaron called it. He took the video using my camera while I was outside hanging out with Tiffany and Paige and everyone. Sorry it's a little long, about 2:15...

13 Days!!

My mom pointed out today while we were laying out that we can officially say we leave next Saturday. :) YAY :) Except to be completely honest, I almost don't want this trip to come. Don't get me wrong, I want to go and I am extremely excited, but since the Livesay's are moving and stuff, we don't know when we're going back. So once this trip comes, it's going to be over, and we're going to be in America again for who knows how long. And I don't like that feeling of not knowing. But I definitely am going to enjoy every single stinkin' (literally and non-literally :D) second of this trip.

I don't really know what else I can say about this, so I guess that's all for now. Have a good rest of the day!
