Graduation: T minus 119 days and counting!

Well, I did it. It's all gone, but surprisingly, now that I'm used to it, I like it. If you haven't seen it yet, brace yourself, it looks a lot different. I really should be doing my homework, but I can't focus. Oh well.
Be good, kids!

Graduation: T minus 137 days and counting!

I'm going at 5:00 to get all my long hair chopped off. Pray for me!!! (You think I'm joking?!) *inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale* Could someone PLEASE remind me WHY I'm doing this?! *screams frantically* I'm ok now. I sure hope everyone checks this before they see me so they don't drop dead of a heart attack...lol.

¡Hasta luego, amigos!

Graduation: T minus 137 days and counting!

¡Hola! ¿Cómo están Uds.? Can you tell I just got back from México? I was on a mission trip with several other churches from Arnold, Cedar Hill, Mt. Vernon, Mississippi, and Louisiana. I am exhausted, but it was cool. I didn't get to know most of my fellow youth until the last night on the bus ride home! How wrong is that?! But it's all good, yo.

We went to the children's home our last day there. While we were in the courtyard listening to Steve introduce us to Sister Esther, a little boy about 9 years old tapped me and said, "Buenos tardes." I said the same back to him as I shook his hand. As I was shaking his hand, he pulled me down to his level (not too much shorter than me) and kissed me on the cheek. Isn't that adorable?!

The low point was when I left my Bible on the bus with everyone's email addresses. I could only remember about 3 of their addresses or first and last names. So, hi to (those I can remember off the top of my head whose addresses I got) Malachi, Zeke, Brady, Danay, Stephani, Jenna,and Chris. If I forgot you, don't feel too bad. I remember your faces! lol. Pues, tengo que ir a la escuela mañana. ¡Hasta luego! ¡Y sean ustedes buenos!
