Life Update

This last weekend one of my cousins got married. It was fun to see family and everything since I didn’t go to the family reunion last weekend. Also another cousin of mine had a party/reception because he got married a while ago, but never had a reception or anything. So Saturday was a very busy day!! I drove up to Salem Saturday morning then went with my parents to Woodburn (between Salem and Portland for people not from OR) and went to their service it was nice, but long as Catholic things usually are. I thought it was interesting the scripture that was read. I can only remember what was read for the gospel, which was the story of how Jesus turns water into wine. I just thought there was a lot more relevant scripture that applies to marriage than this. The priest made it work, but it felt kind of like a stretch when there is SO many more relevant passages elsewhere in the New Testament (and I’m sure Old as well). Yet, the Catholic church limits itself by making the main scripture reading/homily (sermon) about a reading from the Gospels. Anyway, I got a little off topic. So that was fun, the one kind of downside was that both of the receptions were outside and it was around 90. So it was HOT! But it was a nice way to spend a Saturday

Sunday I went with my parents and got a bike! The bike I had before was from 3rd grade, and not rideable. So I am pretty excited and it has made getting to school a lot faster and easier! Also I have been proud of myself for riding to and from school these past two days! If you knew me in high school or younger, you would know this is a big accomplishment! Maybe later I will add a picture of my bike. It is a pretty Poly/UO green : )

Also, update on the roommate situation: There have been a few roommates since I last wrote that haven’t worked out. HOWEVER, I had two girls who are both Christian email me last week, and I think one is going to come down to look at the apartment/meet each other so I am really hoping one of these works out! It would be a HUGE answer to my prayers. But if one of these girls doesn’t work out I know God has something else up his sleeves!!

I am getting really excited to come down for Vince and Angela’s wedding! I am pretty sure I am flying down Thursday either into SLO or San Jose. Then I am staying in SLO for a week after the wedding!! Also we (Gavin, Garret and myself) might be going to another wedding for their Grandma the next weekend, but we will see if that all works out. But over all it will be a really nice vacation and time to relax and have a real summer with no school! Also I want to see as many of you as I can while I am down there. So if you are going to be in SLO between August 19-30 let me know and we could figure out a time to hang out! I can’t wait to see all of your lovely faces again and spend some time in one of my favorite places!!

One last thing, I thought I would post a few pictures of my veggie plants. They have gown so much and it is fun to look at the changes, so I thought you might enjoy that too!

From when I first planted them….

… to now!

L to R: cucumbers, green beans, sweet peas, broccoli, and cantaloupe

Some of the sweet peas that have grown! I have had a few, and they are just as yummy as the ones from the store!!

Thats all for now! I miss you all and think about you often!!
