Cute, right?

The good: dress-ups.
The bad: No sleep for 24 hours. I don't know how I'm still alive.

6 months!!

Remember this sad day?? Well I never thought time would pass, but look. IT'S BEEN 6 MONTHS!! On one hand, I really can't believe how fast time has gone & I feel like so much has changed. On the other I feel like that time was sooo long ago. But I cannot can't imagine 18 more months going by, It just doesn't seem like it will ever end. I follow this girls blog whose missionary just got home & it gives me hope that time actually does pass. Nate is doing really well though, he got made a trainer after just a couple months in the mission field, he loves his companion (which is such a blessing) & he has had quite a bit of success with teaching & baptizing new people. He loves Spain and always talks about how beautiful it is in his e-mails & from what I can see in pictures it is absolutely beautiful. I am so proud of him, as much as I miss him I DO NOT want to see him for another 18 months! Please go fast!

There were never such devoted sisters.

We have ups & downs. We laugh we cry. We tease & we love. Now that Jamie is back in town we all just can't get enough sister time. We've had multiple lunch dates, Ross runs, and late nights. But I love my sisters, they are my best friends. Cheers to all being in the same state again!

Packing is looking like this....

I'm one week out, but a little anxious. So I've started packing. Needless to say, it isn't going very well.

In t-minus 9 days (August 26th) I will be headed to the country of Panama for a week and a half on a humanitarian expedition. It's an LDS based group that works on all the dental work for future missionaries, who can't afford (or don't have the means) to get it all done. This group goes to multiple countries including; Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua & Panama. This is their first time to Panama, but what we do is go in and take over a stake center and set it up as a clinic. They do; cavities, cleaning, root canals, wisdom teeth extractions, missionary pictures, missionary haircuts and a few other things. I feel so blessed that I get to experience this, I've been told it will be an experience of a lifetime. I can't wait!

I'll post all about it when I get home.
more details here.
