hehehehhe...i don't blog very well obviously. i guess i just like reading more than writing...(just ask my teachers, they'd agree!!! ;)

well, let's begin with the writing shall we!?!?!?! it has been a very very difficult summer. I'm in STEUBENVILLE and NOT Washington. I think you can probably get an idea for how i feel about that. God had me here for a reason this i know, but that doesn't mean it wasn't painful. i don't want to be a downer, so i will spare you from my complaining!!! The one thing i will share with you is that my Grandpa Manning (my mom's dad) passed away while I was here, actually i was in Nashville when it happened. I know that he is dancing with Jesus and all the little babies in Heaven (my gramps loved babies, just so that doesn't sound a little strange)! i am so happy that he is not suffering but sooooooo sad i won't be able to have our hug again. i will always remember it though. Please pray for me, it's going to be a long year, especially now that i'm a senior...yup, that's right, only one year left.

i know i say it every time (and never follow-through), but how about once more, i'm gonna try to blog more this year! time will tell ;)

Oh yeah!!!! I MADE THE DEAN'S LIST!!!!!!! i feel so smart, hahahahha yeah!

i will be home for two weeks on aug 5th!!! yaya home!!!

I swear if I can get through this I can get through anything!!! Keep praying, it's getting harder. God did answer a prayer in a way. Our professor split up the class, basically those who failed the midterm got moved to a different time and we're going back and reviewing so we can more fully undertand it. I am appreciative, but feel kinda dumb. i know i know.... it's a good thing, but that's just where I am right now. It is the first midterm i have failed and it doesn't feel very good. I hope it will be the last.

Can't wait for Christmas, it'll be good to be home.

He's coming to visit this weekend and part of next week!!! I am so excited for him to come out!!! I am praying that he'll have a good time and Steubie will leave a good impression on him and be inspiring. I pray for God's will to be done!!! :) Please pray for him, especially that he's not overwhelmed with too much Jesus!!! Is that possible?
Love to you all~

The Wedding of the Summer!!!
One of my favorites!!!

Hello all who read the blog o'amy! It has been awhile since I've posted anything, perhaps it because I am not by the internet as much as I thought I was going to be??? Who's to say. I am sooo busy here at school with 9 classes a week, it's a bit overwhelming. Please keep me in your prayers that I can get it all done. the pic is at the very end of the summer right before I left. It is a great shot!!!! I will try to drop a line in every once in awhile and a picture so you can remember what I look like. Most of the time I do stuff on facebook, and if you don't have it you should get it!!! :) Love to you all and God's peace. I am working on surrendering to His will. It is a hard thing to trust, and to be vulnerable before the Lord. I myself want to be perfect and it's hard for me to let my guard down. I am getting there. I always must remember that everything is in God's perfect time.

HERE THEY ARE...... 3.6

Media and Society - A-
Music Theory II - B+
Voice - A
Piano - A
Sacraments - B+
Schola - A

I'm happy, especially about the theory grade!!! WOW!!! :)
I'm kinda scared about next semester though...FRENCH...AAAAHHHH!!! I'm gonna start early and try to learn the basics so I can have a smoother start.

my classes for next semester are:

Principles of Biblical Studies (Old Testament)
Music Theory III
Gregorian Chant
I'm Home!!!!

It's good to be home, but it was hard at first trying to adjust. It is such a different place over there at Franciscan. It's like a little slice of heaven on earth. The time change threw me for a few days, but I think I'm good now!!!

My brother is getting married in July, so the festivities are beginning. This Saturday is the first bridal shower for Megan's side of the family. The next for her co-workers, and then finally the shower for our side of the family on June 8th!!! The theme is a 'first class picnic'. Their honeymoon is at the Stephanie Inn in Cannon Beach, OR so we decided we would kind of have a fancy picnic type of day!!! It should be fun. It's my first shower I've ever done, so it should be interesting as well!!! :-)
