Indexing, Indexing and more Indexing

On Friday night, our ward was putting on an Indexing(Family history) all nighter. Amanda, Ashley and I decided that we would go. But first, we stopped at Walmart at midnight and bought Twilight. (I love that movie so much) We then headed over to the church.
So, I was a little worried that I would not like to Indexing. I thought that it would be boring. We started doing it and it turned out to be a lot of fun.
We started to index from 12:30 am and went to 7:00 am. It was crazy. The ward had all kinds of goodies to keep us up. We took breaks and played some games. We played dodgeball and I had a very lucky ball catch. Amanda throw a ball that me and I tried to catch it. I lost it but tried a second time to get it and it bounced up and on the third try and was able to hold on to it. That is pure luck!!! Amanda and I took a break a little bit later and played basketball. It was so much fun and it was good to play because I haven't played in a long time.
So after 200 names it was 7 am. The bishopric made us breakfast and we decided to come home and get some rest. But I really glad that I went and now I have some stuff that I can do when I have some free time.

Hiking to Wind Caves

My roommates, Nicole and Karalee, had a wonderful idea to go hiking up to Wind Caves. So we decided to hike up there and then have a dutch oven cobbler afterwards. Wind Caves are these neat caves that have been by the wind in the Logan Canyon.

In order to get these caves you had to walk up a path up to the very top of canyon. I was a very hard climb but it was worth it. The view was amazing and the caves were so neat. Here are some of the pictures. . . . .

After we got done, we went to a camp fire and cook the dutch oven. We roasted Peeps, a first for me and talked around the camp fire. We enjoyed the dessert and were about to leave and then a group of boys came over and started talking with them. I was really fun. I'm so excited to have good weather to go do some fun things.

I'm going to Nursing School!!!!!!!

In January of this year, I applied for the Nursing Program through the Weber State/Utah State program. Just to let you know about this program. . It's one of the best in the state of Utah and they only take 30 students. So as I turned in my application, I was hopefully that I would be one of those students. They said that I would know if I got in or not at the end of March.

On thursday, I was having a crappy day. I just got done with my drawing class and was upset about my grade because I thought that I did very well on my drawings. So I came home and was on my bed preparing my lesson for Sunday School. I got a feeling that I should go check the mail. I decided to check it and found my letter from Weber in the mail box.

I run back to my apartment and I couldn't open it. I knocked on Amanda's, my roommate, door and she said open it. I slowly openned it and I found out what my fate was. I got accepted to the program!!!!!!! I start the program this fall at Utah State. The program is 4 semesters and I'm so excited.

I called my parents and they were so excited. My mom told me that I was lucky to get in on my first time. I was truly lucky and blessed. It felt like a big relief because now I know what I'm doing with my life. I also glad that all of my hard work is going where I want it to go.
