A Spring in our Steppe

  Ok, Arkansas isn’t exactly a steppe, but I couldn’t resist the visual pun. It did feel like spring today–my car was actually very warm when I left work at 3:15, and green things are popping up here and there. It is quite nice to live in place where there is ocular proof that seasons exist. I had begun to believe that southern California must have boycotted the whole season thing; perhaps it is just too uncool to wear warm clothing and scrape ice off of cars.  Good news: 7 of my papers are completed and the 8th is very nearly so.  When the 9th is done, I will mail the whole kit ‘n caboodle to TMC, hopefully on Monday.  Then, as soon as Dr. Larson enters my grade, I will be finally and officially done with college!  What a relief.  Don’t worry though, I still intend to study for the rest of my life 🙂 Would appreciate prayer that I will be diligent to finish the last two papers and check all 9 for errors and source citations in time to mail by Monday.

A different March madness

  I just came home from participating in a video scavenger hunt birthday party, and it was the most fun I have had in a long time. No pictures, but no doubt sections of the videos taken will end up on Facebook or something. I’ll just post a picture from two weeks ago of my good friend Beth, who organized this party tonight.   In this picture we are about to go to the Rascal Flatts concert at the Alltel Arena in downtown Little Rock on the Arkansas River. Beth and I
