2 Weeks Full of Excitement

Around the time that I updated last time I had just gotten back from Choir Tour with my church. We went to Texas and and sang at at few places on the way. One of the places we went was called Schlitterbahn. It is a fun water park near Austin, TX. Many people chose to enjoy the many fun, exciting rides. One of them sent you UP stream at one point. I'm sure it was exciting. Me? Lazy River and hot tub/bar area. The whole time. It was fantastic. Me and a few middle school and high school girls tried to stay together in the lazy river. This was difficult in one of them. This one I call the not-so-lazy river. It goes around in a circle like one, but every once in awhile a huge wave would come through and send you rushing through the current. This was lots of fun because the 5 of us were trying to hold on to each other and each others tubes, but sometimes the current made that difficult!
But of course, all good things must come to an end. We had our homecoming concert Sunday and then it was back to work.  I intern at my church with the Children's Ministry and I LOVE it. So when I say "all good things must come to an end", that's not to say I was coming back to something I don't like. It was good to be home and I love my job. I work with some amazing, godly women and I'm so blessed to know and work with them.
On Wednesday my boyfriend came back from Alaska and I went to the airport with his parents to pick him up. It was really great to see him again and visit with his parents while we were waiting.
Then the next day I was on the road AGAIN. This busy body doesn't stay in one place too long! I left for Athens to visit my cousin. She goes to UGA and lives in a house that she rents with some other students. We went shopping and walking around downtown, ate at the amazing place called Casa Mia and watched some movies. By the way, if you're ever at Casa Mia, get the cheese dip. It's a roasted red pepper cream cheese served with bread and it's incredible. Anyway, I had a really good time visiting with her.
I just got home and I saw another car parked in my driveway from a neighboring county and I thought, "Who in the world is here from that county?" So I go in and it's one of my favorite teachers from school who was visiting with my mom! (They work together, it's not weird. :)) I was very excited to see her and it was nice to talk to her.

Wow this was a very long post, but clearly I've been very busy. Honestly, I'm just proud of myself for actually blogging. Maybe I'll update a little more often so it won't be as much to read at one time. :) Have a blessed and lovely day!
