OH! I just can't resist! I miss these kids so much! Being an aunt is pretty much the best job in the world. You can always say your too poor to give them stuff (grandparent's job), and your young/old enough where they still think you're cool. It's really ridiculous though how good looking my sib's kids are. How are my kids going to compete with this!

(All photos were stollen off of my sib's websites...ha)
What a beautiful day! There’s a slight breeze with the sun shining. The next couple days are going to be devoted to lifting this burden (aka homework) off my shoulders. Freedom! I want FREEDOM! I prayed for more hours in a day for this week, and I think it’s actually working.
Is it crazy that I think I might want to teach middle school? I’m in a methods class where I help teach 6th-12th grade art. I still really want to be a high school art teacher, but middle school isn’t too bad either. I think they are so funny! They are so quick to please, and yet they think everything is stupid. It’s great!
If anyone had an art project that they just loved growing up, can you send that my way? I’ve been collecting ideas, but now I really need them. Thanks!
…I better get to work now :)

What! And I just read something they posted that I wrote...That wasn't even for them! That was supposed to be a blog I wrote for this, but didn't finish it. I guess it was saved on my prof.'s computer some how, and she sent it thinking it was a blog for the school! Oh dear...

Garet and I had a time just going down the Great Wall:
If you want to see more, I posted a bunch of pictures on Facebook:
I am putting together a video of the trip, so expect to see that in future days...Hmm, I wonder what's next. Red River Gorge is coming up soon, but there has to be something bigger. And, skydiving may be in the works for graduation. I'll keep you posted. Life is pretty exciting:)
I have just dropped a class to lighten my huge load for Spring semester. This means I will most likely not be student teaching in China. I don’t know what to think about this. I’m kind of relieved because now I can focus on looking for a job, creating a quality portfolio, applying for grad school, or preparing for a mission. I can also keep my job, which will hopefully get me being a CHA certified horseback riding instructor sooner. I was thinking that if I do go to grad school I will hopefully have enough saved up to pay for the first year, and then teach horseback riding and/or art lessons to pay for the rest. Who knows what will happen, but hopefully I’ll be prepared for whatever.
Welp, I’m off. I’ve got a ton to get done today
