Thanks to everyone who prayed for me! I finished my verses (notice I'm using the computer!) and I have almost survived Driver's Ed! Tomorrow is my last day! I'll try to get a longer post in later, but we're leaving for Michigan tomorrow afternoon, so it may be a couple days.
Have a wonderful, blessed weekend, everyone! If you're feeling down this week, just think of your fantastic friend, Charity, and let your day brighten up! (hehe slight sarcasm there ;-)) I love you guys a ton and don't know what I'd do without my friends!

I am a newly permitted driver!!! :-D I just got my driver's permit about 15 minutes ago! My dad first had to take me down-town to get a social security card (I lost mine somehow). The dumb thing is, you can't get your permit without a social security card and you almost can't get a social security card without a driver's liscence! But we managed to get it without much hassle. My picture on my permit isn't very good, though. I didn't realize that I was getting it today. I had Driver's Ed this morning (We forgot yesterday's class...whoops!) and we came home for a few minutes to eat and get some stuff before going downtown. It was after we left that I realized I wasn't exactly looking my best. I had/have on a blue, very casual T-shirt, a pony-tail in my not-so-nice-looking hair, and almost no makeup. Also, the lady had to take the picture literally five times! The first time she said it was too dark. Then too light. The third time it was too dark again! It was either the fourth or fifth time that she said it was still a bit too light, but it would work. (She called me "Casper". :-P) When she asked me me weight and height, I wasn't exactly sure so I estimated. I know my height is between 5' 6" and 5' 7". My dad said to just put 5' 7". That makes me feel tall. :-D hehe. And I'm NOT putting my weight on a public site so too bad so sad! Maybe that's vain, but hey, I'll take vain if it means I don't have to tell people how fat I am. (Ok, ok, I don't really think I'm fat so I don't need any lectures...)
Tonight Maria and I get to go spend the night with Bethy at the Long's since Luke is going to Stephen Long's. We're going to stay up late talking, eating junk food, and watching "Phantom of the Oprah". And for the first time, we won't get repremanded when we whisper after 'light's out'. ;-)
In case anyone hasn't noticed, I added a few new links to my site. Be sure to check out Emily and Micah's site! They have some great pictures!
Love to you all!

I have so many mixed emotions about ECHO. Go to Ellie's blog for a great post about yesterday. I must have hugged everyone 10 times. I cried at least five different times. There's so much I regret about how I spent what could be my last ECHO trip. But I hope I am forgiven for those things by my friends, family, and God. I love everyone that went so much. I know I told them, but I don't feel like I can even begin to describe how much I really do. There were so many up's and down's on this past ECHO trip, but through it all God taught me so much. He is so awesome!
Despite the fact that I know God is always in control working things for our our good, I am afraid I will have trouble trusting Him in the near future. Right now I just want to focus on getting to know Him better than ever as my very Best Friend. He has blessed me so much my whole life and I know He will continue doing so.
I know some of you ha'te it when people come back from ECHO crying about how much they miss it, and all I have to say to you is go for yourself and see if you don't come back missing it. No matter how many promises you make to yourself or others, God changes your life in ways unimagineable and you can't but help to immensly miss everyone.
I'm in a bit of "ECHO Depression" right now. So, so many mixed emotions...
I love you all so much!

"Ya live and ya learn..."
Yesterday, after my first Driver's Ed class, I went to Anna Pulliam's. Grace had spent the night and was there, too. After eating lunch at Highland, we tried to get David to take us to Wallgreen's. When he refused, (:-P) Anna got Mrs. Pulliam to agree. So, we got two highlighting kits. We went home and we--
*cutting out a few hours of the story*
--Then we went to see "Madagascar" (or however you spell it). The animal's were adorable and it was pretty funny. I went home and got a few comments from my family members about my, uh, hair...
I had Driver's Ed again today. It wasn't as bad as yesterday cuz I actually semi-knew people. There's really only one gi'rl I've talked to and sat with. Her name's Jasmine and she's pretty nice, but I really don't think she's a Christian (by the way she talks). So I guess you could pray I'd be a good witness. After tomorrow, though, I'll probably never see her again. I have to continue taking the class after ECHO, but there will be all new people. That means I'll have to go through the first, awful 15 minutes of not knowing anyone at all and trying to find someone who will let me sit with them. *sigh* Life goes on...
OH! So, yeah, we leave for ECHO on Thursday! My mom bought around a zillion tons of groceries for ECHO today. She took Maria, Tamara, and Zachary to Aldi's and they all four had filled-to-the-top-stuffed-full carts. Tamara claims people were laughing at them as they went through the check-out line and then out to the car.
I really need to get a packin', though. I've been doing laundry today, but I haven't really packed at all yet! I hope everyone else going on that trip is having fun getting ready, too!
Well, I've really been enjoying this song, but I'm sure it's getting a bit annoying, so I guess I'll change. Most of you probably won't hear from me for a while. I might be able to get a very short post in on ECHO if we go to the library there. Don't miss me too much! ;-)
