This week the new semester of school began and it was a pretty great week. We are both pleased with all of our classes. John David is registered for 20 hours, however he only has to attend 2 classes, Agricultural Finance and Intro to Broadcasting. All of his other hours are internship or special topics. He definitely is going to have an easy semester.
I do not have such an easy semester since I am graduating a year early! I have 6 classes, Agricultural Finance, Interior Plantscaping, Agricultural Engineering, Intro to Theatre, Music Appreciation, and Senior Seminar. I will be busy but I am confident I can do well in each class. My Music Appreciation class is for Music Majors only however, Tech put me in that class and the professor is allowing me to remain in there since I need the class in order to stay on track to graduate. So it isn’t necessarily going to be an easy “A” but that is okay!
This past week I was asked to teach the 11th and 12th grade girls Sunday School class at church. I met with the Youth Minister Wednesday night and this Sunday I am going to meet the girls and will probably become their teacher. I am really looking forward to being used by God to make a difference in the lives of these young ladies as well as letting him use this to draw me closer to him.
Thursday John David and I went to Nashville to the Grand Ole Opry House Studio A and watched the filming of the Crook and Chase Show which will be on RFD-TV. It was a great experience to be a member of a live studio audience. We also were able to see Garth Brooks, and he sang “More than a Memory,” he is absolutely amazing! George Jones also was interviewed on the show and The Oak Ridge Boys were there and they sang two songs. It was a wonderful experience!
This week was busy but I managed to have some time to relax. One thing that helps me relax the most is cooking, I am able to go to the kitchen and forget everything but fixing a wonderful meal for my husband. I had two “firsts” this week. I baked my first loaf of homemade bread and it turned out pretty good. I also made some ham and cheese biscuits which were amazing, John David even enjoyed them and he usually doesn’t like biscuits. I really enjoy trying new things especially things that are challenging, I have made a couple homemade pies (homemade pie crust and everything) in the past few months including a Chocolate Silk Pie and an Apple Pie with a streusel topping!
God blessed us with another amazing week!
