I'm falling more and more in love with longboarding, even if I do hurt myself all the time (right now, I have two skinned up knees, a chunk of skin out of my left wrist, a bruised left palm, and a bit of skin missing from my left foot). There's something about rolling around campus and down the river walk that is very gratifying.
Dori and I were talking last night about how different we are now vs. in high school. Neither of us could imagine ourselves longboarding at that time in our lives (she boards too). We kind of wondered what all of our friends from home would think if they saw us boarding around. We spent an hour at the park Friday afternoon, trying new hills and practicing pushing with our opposite foot. It's so weird for me to think of myself enjoying something so much now that two years ago I didn't even know existed.
Yesterday, I spent all day in Batavia, IL watching Peter participate in his first slalom race (downhill longboarding race in which boarders weave in and out of cones). I can honestly say that I had a wonderful time watching everyone race. I'm looking forward to the next one I can go to!

Since my last post, I have been reminded several times that I can find strength to get through each day in Christ. Thank you to everyone who helped put my mind on things above.

Busy Times

The busiest part of the semester has arrived. I am currently involved with the musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie, which is eating up a lot of my time. It will be over in two weeks though. The following weekend, the Concert Choir is performing with the Notre Dame Chorale and the South Bend Civic Orchestra at the Morris Center. Starting this week, we are tacking on extra rehearsals to prepare for the concert. I am also observing a third grade class eight hours a week. So, between those three things, I'm finding myself the busiest I've ever been in my life. My goal for this month is to come out alive, preferably with my sanity still intact, but beggars can't be choosers.

My life isn't all gloom (as the above paragraph might indicate). Today, I accidentally tried to swipe a meal click with my driver's license. The poor girl who was swiping it was so confused. I got a nice chuckle out of it :P
