first week done... we made it!

We girls were talking at breakfast yesterday morning about how were were so scared on Monday... we felt like this week would take forever, but hallelujah! we made it through :)

So, many of you have heard that I am in a Soccer Class (yes, PE already)... on day 1 our coach was super intimidating. Seriously, Coach was using all this terminology that we'd never heard of and was making it very clear that we were going to be working hard... "this is an athletic class... be prepared to sweat... ladies- hair up, guys- no hats, if it is raining, snowing, or hot, we are outside, lightening... well."
Anyways, it is actually fun and I have learned a thing or two already... who knows, I may just be a soccer star :) JK

Last night, CUNE had a movie night on the field... We watched "Pirates of the Caribbean 4" on a big blow-up screen. I had never seen Pirates 4, so that made it more fun. Our whole floor sat together and cuddled up with our  blankets. The only thing we didn't like was how the movie made mermaids look evil... "what happened to Ariel?"said Amy :)
About an hour into the movie, Amy looks to me and says, "Anna, look up... the stars!" Wow! There were so many :) very cool. After the movie outside, we went back to the dorm and watched "Love & Basketball" in Sara and Morgan's room... what a classic :) While we watched the movie, the talented nail artist Molly painted all of our nails :) They are so pretty!

it was pretty humid after the movie... gross
A lot of people went home today and campus felt so empty... it was weird. So, just when we thought we had nothing to do (or I can rephrase that: just when we thought we were going to do homework all day),  Molly's family picked up Amy, Brittany, and I and took us out to Pizza Hut for lunch... Molly works there, so that was really fun. Molly's family is being our "Seward family" right now and we are so blessed to have them close by! They invited us girls over to their house for dinner on Sunday, so Brittany, Amy, and I walked over to Seward's SunMart and bought supplies to make Oreo ice cream dessert... it was so hot, but luckily, I got to carry the grocery bag with the ice cream, so I was a little cooler on the walk back :-) While we were mixing, we Skyped Mom, Dad, and Jen... it was really good to see their faces again. We got our first piece of "real" mail - not a book from Amazon - yesterday... thanks Mom, Dad, and Jen! Miss you so much already... this morning, we realized our Saturdays are going to be very different... we were "homesick."

Hobby Lobby candle warmer purchase

Then, Molly, Brittany, Amy, Eric (Molly's little brother), and I went to Lincoln to get stuff at the Hobby Lobby (awesome store by the way!) and Elaine's cookies for our floor girls. Amy and I really do feel like we are in the right place with just the right people... we feel like we've known these girls forever... it is such a relief to know that the girls on our floor have the same values. It is such a good place for us... :-)

Btw: the girls on our floor can already tell us apart :) it only took them 3 days! love you girls! & everyone is really nice and respectful here (we love it)!

Well, it's probably time to do homework... BYE NOW!
