My dad and I had our first meeting for our missions trip to Kenya! I left the meeting feeling a little overwhelmed at all of the information thrown at us, but overall - I left feeling so excited for this opportunity that God has placed before us. I feel so blessed to be able to share this with my dad as well. Our countdown is down to 4 months - so it's quickly approaching, and I feel that I have so much to do before December 26th! Pray that as the day approaches, my dad and I will have everything in order: Spiritually, emotionally, and financially.
Last weekend Mike took me to Indy to spend some time with two of my best friends. I had really been missing them, so he planned a night that we took off of work and were able to spend some quality time down there. Here's a picture of Sheena, Jamie, Mike, and I at the girls' apartment in Indy. It was so great to spend time catching up with them on Friday night. Thanks girls for a great time! I am so thankful that Mike wanted to go down to spend time with them as well.
On Saturday, while we were in Indy, Mike and I went to the zoo! I had been talking about going to the zoo for awhile, and Mike must have been paying attention because he surprised me with this fun trip! We had a great time looking at all the animals, taking pictures, and of course my favorite - watching the dolphins!!
I guess we tried to make our summer adventures last just a little bit longer, because this past Tuesday Mike and I headed to Chicago for the Cubs game! I had bought tickets for Mike a few months ago as a surprise for his birthday. It was a very hot day in Chi-Town! But we had so much fun at the game, and we had a lot of time to just catch up with each other and really enjoy each other's company. I really appreciate that time that we had together. This semester will be a busy one for both of us, so I am so grateful that we are able to make time for each other like that. Also, at this Cubs game - we made things more official :) Mike and I are now together. He asked me to be his girlfriend during batting practice. haha. It was very sweet and I'm still smiling! I think this was the highlight of my day, but I'm pretty sure the fact that the Cubs beat the Brewers made Mike's day! :)
Well, there's my 'update' post. I haven't done one in awhile. I would love to hear from all of you. I hope all is well, and just know that you are all in my prayers and thoughts often.
