365 days

365 days...
That's how long we've been married. The year has flown by, really.
I think back to last summer, when Chris was in Iraq and I had recently moved to College Station and those months felt like an eternity. I am grateful that they are only a memory now.

In our first year of marriage we..
  • got a dog, Scout
  • went on a cruise
  • made some married friends at Grace Bible Church
  • met our new nephew, Kai
  • Chris rode the MS150, and Lei watched :)
  • bought a house
  • Lei completed a year of work at St. Joseph's, Chris finished his first year of grad school
  • Chris taught his first class during the summer as THE teacher
  • Lei got signed up to substitute school nurse at College Station ISD
  • were sooo blessed!

I feel it's only appropriate to have a few pictures from that monumental August 29, 2009.

It took me a while to rummage through all the pictures. I love to go back to that day. Hands down, the best day of my life. Marrying Chris has been such a blessing. I am humbled to know God gave me a best friend and a wonderful companion.

Chris, I love you so much and I thank God for you. Thank you for such a wonderful first year.

editor in chief

Chris has recently taken over as the Editor in Chief of the Maroon Weekly. This is a weekly off-campus news and entertainment based paper. He was the sports editor and some other editorial position for a while, but stepped away after this past Christmas. The opportunity came for him to get back in to it and be in charge this time around. It's taking up quite a bit of time, but he's loving it. We're hoping that once the semester starts and the new writers get the hang of things, things will start running smoother and Chris won't be as needed. During the semester his time is precious so this will be crucial for him to stay on time to graduate in May.

Here is the cover for the first issue last week, Chris' design.

when in rome...

This past week I helped with Vacation Bible School at our church. The theme was ancient Rome and the church was amazingly transformed into Rome. Me and my helper, Caitlin, had 8 3rd-6th graders. It was busy, but so much fun!
here is our group playing one of the games
this is Paul's house..most of the kids' favorites. the two guys in the middle are Paul (on the right) and Brutus, the Roman Soldier guard (on the right)
The purple Gallius group!

birthday party!

Last Saturday we had some people over for my birthday. We had BBQ and cookie cake and lots of great fellowship. We are blessed to have great couple friends from church. It was a great birthday weekend!

pine cove outback

This post is long overdue... I was the camp nurse for Pine Cove Outback (in Columbus, TX)
this summer for week 4 of camp. It was June 20-26 and the camp had about 220 3rd-9th graders.

I had a BLAST.

The nursing part of it was very different than what I am used to in the hospital, but my health assistants were wonderful and by the middle of the week I felt much more confident and had the hang of things.

Here's the sign outside the clinic.
This was one of my silly health assistants, and you can see some of the clinic around her.
This room held all of the medications.
Med cabinet!
my quarters...I was expecting to sleep in a bunk bed with a sleeping bag, so this was a wonderful surprise. I even had my own bathroom.
It was a great experience and I believe it helped in making me a more well-rounded nurse. I look forward to being a camp nurse again next year!
