Wow! It has been three weeks since my last blog. My apologies. Finals finished, and I got on the plane on the 16th. I've been in California for about 2 weeks, and have one more week to go. Christmas and family visits went by fast. Lily experienced the attack of the Ruthie-kisses about every da.... minute. FYI- If you get a rice maker and waffle iron for Christmas instead of a box of crayons and paper dolls, that means your unwanted independence is sneaking up. They will be well used, but so would crayons. Someone knew, and I got them in my stocking without even asking for them. Yes! I can still be a kid. And my mom got paper dolls for Christmas from one of her best friends! There is still hope for me, and I have come to the conclusion that I don't have to grow up completely.

We've been playing tons of PIT and Risk, Monopoly, Stratego, Phase 10, etc... The joys of hearing my Dad scream "3, 3, 3, 3, 3 ..." on the top of his lungs is music to my ears. I lost my voice for a while after screaming "1" for a round. Monopoly is my brother's and my unending battle. We are pretty even in our victories, and our strategies are very predictable in both Monopoly and Risk. The Christmas tree is beautiful as always with its 25 year old decorations and the weather outside is wonderful. The rain right now is unwanted, but the past two weeks of 70-80 degree weather is nothing to complain about. I wish I had brought shorts and a bathing suit. Not kidding! I have to soak it up before I return to my winter wonderland of snow ... where I have to slush around, dig out my car with 3 weeks of snow, scrape off the ice, and sit in the unheated interior. The beauty is worth it though.

Classes and a little break with Narnia!

I took my 2nd Greek Exam yesterday. I think it went okay. 3 more to go, and I'm probably going to take those while in Cali over break. I'm in the midst of finals and finishing up classes. I'm really looking forward to being done with these. I have registered for classes!
*2nd Temple Judaism
*Biblical Customs & Geography
*Greek II
It's going to be another heavy load, but probably more enjoyable classes. :) We'll see. My roommate bought tickets to the midnight showing of Narnia. It was GREAT! I don't remember the books too much, but I remember enough to really be excited. My mom read them to me when I was little, and it was exactly how I imagined it would be. I was really pleasantly surprised to see the Gospel in it. When Aslan died, it helped be remember how much it was a gift! Edmund was insignificant and small (and a traitor) in contrast to Aslan, the RULER OF NARNIA! Like me, insignificant and small in contrast to CHRIST, the RULER OF THE WORLD!!!!! Wow, it was pretty humbling and so unexpected to get out of a smash hit movie. It is definitely a must see.

Lily my lovely little thugish 49er cheerleader!
