Volleyball games & Such

Over the last week, we have had so many "highs" and things to be thankful for!  This week was the first official "GIRLS' NIGHT" at our aprtment.  Every Wednesday from here-on-out is forever going to be called GIRLS NIGHT.  This involves alot of munchies, good chats and an ALIAS episode.  For our first night I think we had about 20 girls show up!  It was so fun and I can't wait until next week to have another one : )

Last night, we went to our first TMC volleyball game and our girls won!! They did so well and we are super proud of them.   After, the game we had a "last-minute" movie night (which involved a lot of "schnacks") at our place and got to hang out with some other students too- it was so encouraging and we are discovering that we LOVE to have people in our home!

Here are some pics from last night...

Did I mention that I am in a class called CERT?  All new RDs have to take it- it's so we can be prepared in the case of a major disaster, emergency, or accident.  Last week learned all about fire safety.  Would yuou like to see a picture? I now know how to put out a small fire : ) Scary, I know.
This is my friend and fellow RD, her!

This has been a great week and I am so thankful for this job and the people I get to serve with.  I see the Lord's kindness in so many aspects of this job.  It's humbling and wonderful- we love it and wouldn't have it any other way!

Well lately, we have been going, going, going hence no blog post for a while, sorry about that : ).  We are both enjoying our jobs a lot and really enjoying getting to know all of the students.  They are all so fun, gifted and talented, and their love for the Lord is so encouraging.  Last week we had about 30 guys and girls in our apartment just hanging out and having fun- we loved it! And we can't wait for it to happen again soon : ) Also last Friday I got to teach at our all-girl dorm chapel which was so fun!

Nothing huge to report, but we do have some fun pics from the end of August and the beginning of the school year...also we ordered a juicer.

We celebrated our 2 year anniversary out on the town with dinner and a movie...

Then we got ready for THE MASTER'S CUP (dorm competitions) at the end of the last week of August!  Our dorm colors are blue and white, can you tell?

 And then we took a little break and went to the Hollywood Bowl and saw John Williams conduct and heard all of his big-hit movie theme songs!  It was SO fun and he did like 4 encores.

We are doing well- Matt is studying away and working full-time, while I am learning the ropes of what an RD does day-in and day-out.  We are always up late and usually up early too, so life is full but we are thankful for the fullness : )
More to come soon!
