Everyday life

I really could not think of anything to write, so I will update you on our exciting lives...

In less that one week, Daniel and I will be boarding a plane together for the first time.  I want to stop and make a side note...In December, Daniel and I will have been together for 5 years so we have done ALOT together.  Very rarely now are there things that we have not done as a couple, so this is exciting (well not really for me but for Daniel).  I have flown oodles of times that I cant even begin to count how many, but Daniel has NEVER flown.  Oh and did I mention I am not a fan of scares the heck out of me.  So, this next week should be quiet the experience!

In other news, our support has been coming in rather quickly and it has honestly caught us off guard...shows how much faith we have in Christ.  We sent out almost 200 letters to family and friends and God has really burdened their hearts to join with us in what He is doing in France. I think it is so exciting.

We bought our plane tickets tonight for our trip to France in November which was super fun!   Daniel's eyes became enormous when he found out that he got to pick his seats on the plane. He has been talking about it for weeks how he want to get a window seat...and he did on all 4 flight!  Yeah, i'll just close my eyes and hope to fall asleep while he enjoys himself.

Training for the marathon is going really well...we have 10 miles on Saturday.  Our running is really paying pants that have always been tight we actually loose today...yeah!

Anyways, I think that is about it...Madie is growing bigger everyday.  Here are picture of the first day we got her and what she looks like now...I love her so much!

The RACE is on

(This is a picture of Lane, Me, and Lindsey after we did a 5k for the Church)
As of Saturday...we have begun training for The Rocket City Marathon. We have not officially entered the marathon, but we will. Saturday we ran 4.25 miles. We are following a schedule that we found in Runner's World Magazine that is really helpful. Today was "suppose" to be our crosstraining day of working out at the gym, but we opted to run outside for 30 min instead and will switch it with another day. We are excited and MOTIVATED!! YEAH it has been a while!

Never said before

I honestly thought that I would never say this but....I COMPLETELY WANT TO BE GOING "BACK TO SCHOOL" soon like everyone else.  Since I am on staff at our Church as the Children's Ministry Assistant I am obviously around kids who are getting ready to start school.  As much as I wanted to get out of desire to go back right now is overwhelming!!!
Not that I don't enjoy my job, or the fact that we are pursuing missions...there was just something so right with going to school everyday and not having to sit at a desk 8 to 5.  I would not say that I want to go back to high school or even middle school for that, but more so college. SEBC is truly my home and I already miss the students and professors that I got to see each and everyday (not to mention what was being studied).  

As I look back I think yeah those times in the middle of the semester when everything is pilling up on you and you are thinking that the world will come crashing down is truly a horrible feeling.  And in that very moment I can say I felt horrible, but now I want those situations. Anyways I feel like I am rambling....

Don't get me wrong...I am very excited to see what God has in store for Daniel and I as we become missionaries in France.  Hey and we get to go to school over there!!! yeah I can't be a professional student all my life...I have to grow up sometime.  I do enjoy the memories and friendships that were made at SEBC and will keep them with me wherever I go!
