Friday Photo Dump

These pictures are from the past 2 weeks since I didn't post last Friday.  I've been busy with school, clinicals, and trying to stay warm!  But I've also had time to fit a little fun in...

This is Luke's cousin Leah, and she was on the court for Winter Sports Dance!  It was fun going to the basketball game a couple of weeks ago to see her get introduced with her parents.

On a Sunday the weekend before last when I was having a good day nausea-wise, Luke and I went out on a date after church to use a gift card and do a little shopping.  We ate at Longhorn, and I had leftovers for days.  It was delicious!  Also nice to spend time with Luke, of course.

I already shared this picture, but thought it was too cute not to share again!  Plus this needs to be documented since it's the baby's first Ohio State gear!  Ha!  From Maria and Luke (The other Luke.  As in, the baby's future uncle.  This is going to be confusing. ha!)  

Luke is on a volleyball team at church and he has games every Tuesday night.  It's fun to watch him and the rest of the team play!  This was before their game on Tuesday.  They were playing an undefeated team, and I thought you could just tell from this picture how serious they all were about the game!  Unfortunately, they did not win, but they played really well anyway!

This picture was taken the following night at the church.  Wednesday night Bible studies, middle school youth group, and Kid's Bible Club were all going on.  I was there in my One Thousand Gifts Bible study when the fire alarm went off.  We all evacuated the classroom and tried to figure out what was going on.  Apparently a pipe had burst due to some rust and the freezing temperatures of the past few days.  Gallons of water were pouring into the sanctuary, and downstairs into the children's department.  Lots of damage was done, but we know that God was watching over all of us, too.  For one thing, the timing couldn't have been better.  If this had happened in the middle of the night, everything could have been ruined.  Luckily, it happened when hundreds of people were at the church.  Another blessing was seeing everyone come together to help clean up!  I am blessed to be a part of this church.  I was also so proud of my husband who was one of the last to leave.  It was quite the ordeal, but I'm glad everything is going to be okay!

On Tuesday a couple of my classes were cancelled, so I had a long break in the middle of the day. I crashed at my sister's house during that time, and it was so nice!  Temperatures were in he single digits that day, so it was really nice to curl up in her warm living room, cuddled with with her dog Oopa, and just catch up!  For lunch we had some chicken tortilla soup that she and Andy had made and frozen with vegetables from their garden.  She also made homemade bread.  It was such a cozy little break in my day!  I'm blessed to have a sister who lives so close to campus, and who lets me crash with her sometimes!

Happy Friday!
