Eric turned 26 last week! To celebrate, we went paintballing. Yes, even I went - and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was. We all had a great time. Thanks to everyone who helped make Eric's day so special. Happy Birthday babe! I am so grateful for you and everything that you do for me. You are my best friend and I love you!
I finished it - my last class as a BYU student. Unfortunately I'm not quite set to graduate, but I am done with classes and what a relief!! One semester of student teaching left and I am home free. Well, free to the real world of work anyways. I'll probably wish I was back here someday. As for now - I can't wait to get out of Provo and I'm excited to see what the Lord has in store for us.
In other news.... the Easter Bunny came to visit our house last week. Take a look at what he left...
My mommy also came to visit. We had a fabulous time shopping, eating, watching girly movies, shopping, and shopping. One night we went to CPK for dinner and the fire alarm went off the entire time. It was obnoxious and they didn't even give us free drinks. Rude.
These faces will always bring a smile to my face. Even though their lives were anything but easy, these smiles are evidence that innocence still exists, even in the most depressing conditions. My time in the Dominican Republic taught me that.
I miss these faces and I miss these kids.
But I'm glad to see that the church is still reaching out and making a difference in the Dominican Republic.

Walk in Love...
"The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity"
Love, like faith is a gift from God. It is also the most enduring and powerful virtue. - Gordon B. Hinckley

"I believe laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing; kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles." -Audrey Hepburn
