Guess what?

Our family just bought 6 baby quail. They're so cute! :)

The latest news is: I bought a laptop! :) It's a Toshiba Satellite, and I really like it so far. I remember saying once that I'd never buy a laptop. Don't know what I was thinking. Especially with me considering going to school, I kinda need one. I'm glad I bought it.

At rehearsal Monday, we learned some choreography for one of the songs. Tammie encouraged all of us who are villagers in the play to develop a character for ourselves. So I did some research on life in London back then. The poorhouses were terrible, and the greatest fear of the poor was ending up in one. Now when Scrooge sings the part about the poorhouse, I'll picture what I read about and I'll be able to act more realistically. I like research! :)

Tomorrow night is the first M28 Big Meeting of the year! I'm excited to see how many people come.

exciting possibility

So, I've been interested in massage therapy for a while now. I recently started thinking about learning more so I can do it professionally. I went and got a massage, so I could see what it's like, and I think I would enjoy doing it.

I went to a massage therapy school yesterday for an interview. They gave me a tour of the school, and lots of information. I think it would be so cool to go there and learn to be a massage therapist! :) It would be a great way to show love to people - helping them feel better through massage. And the program is only 6 months.

But, I shouldn't jump right in. I don't have enough money right now and I'm not sure how much time I'll have this coming semester. I should pray about it first.

My sinful flesh doesn't want to pray about it. I'm thinking, "I really want to do this, so I should do it right now!" I'm very impatient when it comes to things I'm excited about. Please pray that I will be patient and really seek God in this decision.

Here are some pictures of Zach that I took on Friday. :)

Zach loves playing outside.

Lining up acorns around the table. It was fun to watch Zach do it.

Zach and I

I love playing with Zach! And I'm glad I have the opportunity to serve Hilary in this way. :)

Last night at Scrooge rehearsal, we got our scripts. My part is a London villager, and I actually have two lines! I'm surprised and excited, since only a few villagers get to say anything. Most of the villagers just sing as a group. I can't wait to start practicing! :)
