This is the day...

     I haven't updated in about a year, so I wanted to let you all know about what went on in my senior year and what I am up to now that all that is over!
     My senior year actually started back in July of 2010 with summer band. I cannot believe how much I will miss those hot, sweaty, exhausting days of marching. I was honored to be the color guard captain this past year, and I am so thankful for how smoothly that all went. The mix of girls I had this year meshed so well, and got along extremely well. I was blessed with a sweet group of loving girls. I am going to miss each one so much, and thank them for making this year so memorable. Not only was I guard captain, but I also had the honor of being band queen. This was so fun! I loved getting to dress up for a football game, and be recognized. Then came all of the traveling. Many games in Lubbock, and trips for marching contest. The trips are always the best part, and this year was no exception. This marching season was definitely one to remember, and a great one to end on.
     There is always an awkward lull after marching season ends. I was involved in PALs this year to pass some of the time. PALs was a great experience and blessing to be a part of. I went to four different elementary schools through the week, and had kindergarteners everyday. One of my kindergarteners was actually supposed to be in the first grade, but his parents had never put him in any type of schooling before. I was so blessed, and stood in amazement as I watched God work in his life. He progressed from basically a one year old intelligence level to where he is supposed to be as a kindergartener. He grew up so much in one year, and it was a blessing to be a part of this. I loved being a part of PALs, and will keep this memory forever.

     As spring rolled around the corner, my level of business rose tremendously. Although the school work dwindled down, the events and school activities sky rocketed. From baseball games to banquets, and from prom to graduation, there was never a dull moment in my agenda. Watching Kyle (my boyfriend) hit two home runs and prove himself to a coach with solely offense on his mind, was a great memory for senior year. Then band banquet was a bitter sweet moment. It was great and definitely went out with a bang, but realizations that it was the last one settled in. Prom was a blast. Every worry leading up to it, God took care of, and it was a great time for all of us. Then finally, to end the year was graduation. It was so wonderful to have family in town and to share this with them. It was a great feeling to know that I had finished.

     After all of the crazy events, June was no different at all. Right after the all night party, Kyle and I left for church camp. This week was amazing and a great needed break from all of the chaos. However, it didn't last long. Three days after we got back, we left for Tech orientation. Talk about overwhelming!! After many prayers, I finally relaxed a little. Orientation definitely put me in the mood to move into the dorm in August. I cannot wait for August 18th to roll around. Then it was off to the races! We got a chance to escape to Ruidoso, NM for a weekend away with family, and we had a blast!
     Well, that update seems like enough for now. Thank you everyone for your support and prayers as I am about to enter a new time in life, and for everything that y'all have taught me so I can be successful.
     This is the day that the Lord has made, and I will rejoice and be glad in it!!
