Advice: don't stare at people's lips when they are talking Dutch. It makes you want to laugh out loud.
So i've been thinking a lot lately about how i can be of more help around here. Things are moving SO SLOW! I read Heather's blog and all i could think of was how i so wish i could be there. for almost three years now i have wanted to lead the tues. night study. I wanted to give my senior speech and look people in the eyes as i told them what they really meant to me. All that changed 2 1/2 year ago when i met Ariel and Alexa Hays in Colorado. Abby Lorenc and I had talked prior to family camp about how excited we were going to be that we could talk to Peter about becoming missionaries. I didn't talk to Peter once on that trip. It's strange to see that if i hadn't injured my knee i would've been in a softball tournament that week. It's strange that i wanted to go on a boat trip with my friend but instead my parent's insisted that i go. But then again, i guess it isn't so strange because God's plan is so much larger than our own. I better go, school just let out. Loving and missing you all, SWAT
