Jordan baptized David, who'd accepted Christ during youth camp. Kasi did a great job singing a solo. After the camp video, several of the students shared testimonies of how God worked in their lives during youth camp and in the weeks to follow. And then of course, the evening was topped off with the "Rooster Song." I was mucho proud of our kiddos for overcoming their stage fright & fears of public speaking and opening their hearts and sharing what they've been learning recently. And what's even more awesome?? A girl who came with one of our students accepted Christ last night! Praise God! Jordan and I are both thrilled to see where this great group of kids is going. (PS: Sorry for the weirdly colored pics- they're SOOC. Our desktop, which is still in it's box has all my photoshop tools.)

The pics are from my iPhone, so don't knock the quality. It seems like the only thing I've gotten so far in all my beach trips is 12234986 more freckles. It did take me 7 months of tanning to get color for my wedding. I guess I'll have to go back to the beach sometime soon. I guess when we move, we'll be 4 minutes closer, which is great, because the 12 minute drive is killer. Dont hate, just visit. Only, dont go to the beach with Jordan. He pees in the water.

Out of order guest bath. The stuff you see in the pictures isnt ours. The sellers have a friend staying there to keep the lawn watered and keep everything clean and that sort of thing. So some of this is his stuff, and some of the things you see are the seller's stuff. Just keep that in mind. Anyone who's been to our apartment before, you know what the guest bath is going to look like because we'll use all our old bathroom stuff until I can convince Jordan to let me go buy new things.
The rest of the backyard and our little tree. Doesnt it look just perfect for a black lab puppy? I think so.
Put your sunnies on people! This bedroom is briiiiiight. It was the seller's nursery and it's even more vibrant yellow in real life. This will be the first room to get some Kilz and a nice taupe. If you're planning on visiting, which I already know you are, this will be the guest bedroom.
And a tub! A place to take my post-run ice baths where I dont have to rig up the drain to keep the water in. It wasnt a deal breaker to have a separate shower/bath, we just got lucky.
And another out of order picture- the dining area. There's a picture of the adjoining kitchen a few down. Papasan chair is not included in the sale of the house.
Master bedroom. I may have changed my bedding idea mind again. I have no idea what I want. Maybe I wont worry about it until we get ready to buy new furniture.
The kitchen! Hallelujah for the counter space!!! I am determined to do a lot more cooking when we finally get moved in. Given that there are very few restaurants around here (especially in comparison to the DFW area...or any other area for that matter), I think i'll probably accomplish this goal with ease. The countertops are Corian, which I really like. The door to the right is the pantry and the door to the left is the laundry room. (This picture is from the listing website.)
Another listing picture, here's the living room area -- and look! Windows!!! No more bear cave!!! I'm in heaven. We have heard from the sellers and they are ready to close as soon as possible. All the paperwork is in and the underwriting has begun, so we're hoping to have the keys in the next couple of weeks!
